Hello
so here is the problem that I'm confused with:
let's say....

Will a torque produced by a 20 teeth(force is exerted to this one) to 60 teeth gear be the same torque compared to a 60 teeth(force is exerted to this one) to a 60 teeth gear.
 
1,166

My torque is infinite, my friend.
 
4,660

Calculate the effective radius of the contact points on the theeth of the two gears, and use your knowledge of lever arms.
