Pete Jackson gear drives is about 1 mile from my shop.... I drive past there all the time... I met his older brother "Kong" Jackson... he made hot rod parts back in the 50's... sadly Kong died a couple of years ago....... I've always heard there were problems running gear drives... hmmmmmmm. ) I'm glad to hear you've had success with them.......
