Pete Jackson BB Chevy noise gear drive parts missing

Post by Ron Miller » Mon Mar 23, 2020 4:29 pm

I have an older Pete Jackson BB Chevy noise gear drive part # 0782-327-ICN that is missing a few pieces. The offset bushings, cam thrust bearing, and the bronze or roller thrust bearing. Will the offset cam bushing from an MR Gasket kit work? How about the cam thrust bearing, is this the common bearing used on just about every roller set? And last what about the front thrust bearing?

Thanks for looking, =D>

I know the Mr. Gasket bushings work.

About the thrust bearing...I would take the gear and such down to the local bearing house and let them find something that will work.

That's all I got.

I'd toss it and either get a quality chain or if you're set on a gear drive, a full cover style like one from Milodon. Pete Jackson drives are junk.

Ran one in my SBC, the harmonics separated the front main web from the block... I was warned but didn't listen.

The Michael Jackson gear drives have better harmonics but are no longer available :roll:

I still have the one I ran, now I use it for mocking up a cam for the degree wheel, the crank gear is not press fit and the cam gear is drilled for degree bushings, so I can get a baseline cam install in-case I need to advance or retard crank gear before installing the actual crank gear.
