gear drives problems

Good morning, I have a 29 ford 2door sedan ( true steel ). I just bought a set of gear drives from summit that looked like they were half installed before. Summit was great in swapping them, however, there were none available in stock to replace them. I think there's a bad run on them n they pulled them .
Anybody else here of this ???

What was the brand name?

Most of us wouldnt use a gear drive anyway, not a good setup, too much harmonics that cause issues with cam and timing.

The brand was from summit racing. when they checked for an instock replacement. none were available. they did find an edelbrock set that they over-nighted to me. I have used them in the past with no issues, however, if they are machined too tight they will wipe your cam quick .
