Toothed/Gilmer drives

PostPost by: fatboyoz » Tue Jul 07, 2009 2:58 am

Hi all,
Am after a gilmer drive set. Burton Power has been waiting for a couple of months for their supply and they don't know when they will be able to supply them.
I see in another thread the mention of Vulcan. I presume this company is in the UK, but cannot seem to find them on the web. Anyone know of this company?
Has anyone purchased these sets elsewhere? US, UK, OZ, NZ?
Thanks,
Colin.

Hey Colin,

Somewhere in my stash I have a new gilmer drive set for a Lotus twin cam, 30T engine, 44T w/pump, 0.68 ratio so it slows the water pump somewhat from the standard 0.88 ratio, so recommended for high revving (racing) engines. Bought new from Dave Bean about 4 years ago, but decided to go with electric pump. If you want it you can have it for what I paid (I think it was about US$150 - bound to have gone up since then). I'll send some pics. if you're interested. If not it goes on eBay this weekend.

Cheers
mike

Thanks Mike,
I am actually after the full set including alternator drive, I believe the Dave Bean set is only for the water pump. It is for a bog standard street car, so full water flow would be required. Thank you for your offer though, it is appreciated.
Colin.

Richard,
Thanks. Had a quick look at the site. Could not find any twincam related items. Seems like they specialise in other Ford type engines.
Colin.
