I dissambled the winch cable reel and turned it down to fit the hub size of the burden hub. I don't remember the diameter. I welded a piece of 1 in square stock to the bottom of my beadroller ( and a lot of other tools, vise, planishing hammer, brake, etc) I have 1 in inside size square tube receivers welded in the southworth lift table and tool stands, flatbed truck, low trailer

I think this is what I used, check the size of your modified winch reel, hub size and sprocket size to make sure every thing will fit. I had the 48 tooth sprocket in my bucket of # 40 drive chain.
This is good stuff. Thanks.
I ordered some cheep #40 chain last night. $11.00 with free shipping. Tractor Supply sells Weldable sprockets. Their 46 tooth is $27. I may have a SPDT switch but will need to buy a foot pedal. Kind of scared of the Harbor Freight one but still looking around. I also have an old wheel and junk driveshaft for a stand.
I hope to line up everything I need for Thanksgiving weekend.
