I also agree with fountain42. I have not had any experience with the Whipples but I did run a pair of PSI's for over 10 years on my 38 Cigarette with absolutely no trouble. No bearing failure nor throwing any belts, just outstanding performance and reliability.

I need to drop off pics to him and fined out. I think he had computer issues up at loto too which would suck real bad since its a 30 to 35 hour tow.I like the old school psi and am happy with my 1071 and dyno #s . Dean Gellner builds nice stuff and he is the one working on your junk, not someone who has a bunch of guys building under his name and your paying big funds for there name.

3 years? Lets not exagerate quite so much. Its been about a year now and something this big and with all the new technology it features, takes some time to develop. As for belt issues, 99% of them are from incorrect setups. You ever see how many belt issues customers with PSI's have when they try to make power? Almost all had to go to kevlar belts. Ask any drag racer how belts live with there PSI's.

Actually not true, especially since I was there. They had a pulley issue, as they had bolts 1-2mm too long. That was fixed, they had other issues. When they had drive issues before, they were not our drives, they were built by someone else and they were a mess. Any part can have a problem when its not installed properly or not used properly, but when its used as designed and intended, failures are rare.

PSI's rotors are an old, out of patent design that cannot maintain the efficency or flow levels of the later profile shapes, thats not fiction, thats fact. Many later technologies have come out in the last 50 years since those rotors were designed. Time will tell whats superior.

me too in fallriver. like I said at the docks they said Dan had pulley issues? second hand info and last year it was the belt or pulleys 2nd stop. also heard down at lotto they had issues but sounded like efi. so your saying it was a drive issue at fallriver?.I got pics to give Dan so I'll ask him about lotto, hope he ran both runs. and it's a bummer if 2yrs in a row he had break downs cause of pullelys or belts in fallriver. hey Mr.ol Dan, are there any runs in sept, oct in conn coming up? I got two more days of cutting up trees thens it back to the boat about a day or two to finish at our rate.
hope all had fun over the weekend next month I get to split all this wood I cut up , later Art!!!
