Quiet gear drive

Hello all

I have a OE style factory roller cammed motor and want to run a gear drive I see you can only buy a quiet gear drive for this style motor but I wanna hear the whine.

My question is does any one run a gear drive on a factory roller cam motor and if so what gear drive and is it noisey??

Re: Quiet gear drive

This is the one I have in mine http://store.summitracing.com/partde...0&autoview=sku
You can barely hear it until about 3k rpm, then it almost sounds like a blower.
I was told the reason it is quiet is the single idler gear. if you want a loud one get a pete jackson.
mine is not a factory roller, but it is a 350 with a solid roller cam
Hope this helps

Re: Quiet gear drive

Thanks for the reply

I need a noisey one to hide valve train noise between 1500-2000 rpms I am told its normal for my setup but it makes me crazy so I figure I would install a gear drive( I like the whine) but the pete Jackson drive says it only comes in a quiet gear drive for my year and style motor...

If any one is running the P.J quiet drive I would love to know if it is really quiet..

Re: Quiet gear drive

I run a quiet Pete Jackson and it is not that quiet. Still has that "whine" to it. I can also hear my valve train as I run a solid flat tappet. I like to hear my engine to know if something is wrong rather than the loud whine of the noisy gear drive.

Re: Quiet gear drive

I ran one of the "noisy" Pete Jackson gear drives, and eventually got rid of it. It worked fine and sounded pretty good, but after a while the novelty wore off and I decided to go back to a regular timing chain setup.

What's wrong with a little valve train noise? On my road racer it was the signature noise of the motor.

I don't mind hearing the engine I just don't like the clatter of lifters etc. I am thinking of pulling the cam rockers etc and replacing with stock

I found this set up for my oe style roller cam anyone use this brand?
