My advice? Get rid of the gear drive and get a true double roller chain.

i should, i have been told the gear drive is inefficiant to a roller chain, but the motor is for my lifted gmc, not something that'll see alot of the track other than a tow vehicle. i wasn't interested at all in gear drives till i got this truck and it had one in it. its sometimes pretty funny to see peoples looks when it pulls in. i'm too poor to afford building a supercharger motor lol
