I saw that as an issue so the holes are slotted slightly for adjustment, but 10mm is in need of a sandwich shim.

"What benefits would this give you over the maddat item?

I'm assuming it would be slightly stiffer, but would it be a noticeable improvement over maddat's to justify the extra bit of cash?"


Its just based on what people want to buy. Go with a Stainless Maddat one or buy a billet aluminum one. Both items would work as what they are intended. Options are available and it just comes down to preference.

I can't beat the price of Maddat's stainless brace, but I can get these in at $125.00 USD.

wheel side brace plate not shown but it's part of the setup.

There are huge assortments of belt lengths out.

Figure out your length and Google Example: 800-8M-22 (length: mm)-8M-(Width: mm)

I imagine anything like a crank trigger could be done. Don't have one on hand to use as a test part though..

I think a HTD kit could be sold in the wide range of $200-$300.00 (Could be more)

Could come down in range if I can find a reasonable supplier of Gear Stock. Or simpler machine processes.

Yeah for the Crank drive I went with a steel keyed hub. A complete 7075 drive pulley would have been fine too but it was less on the $$ to make a steel/6061 combo.

Stacking the gear rings was an idea after seeing some people weld V belt pulleys together.

I will post up a rendering of the drive pulley for my kit soon.

Specs so far. Im going HTD Belt for better meshing. Keeping the pulleys close to the 25.4mm width, and will engineer these pulleys so they can stack for a Supercharger pulley.

Belt: 800MM-8M-22MM

Pulley:115.189 Root Diameter 122.089mm Outer Diameter

I will carry a 3 piece Gilmer kit for the A12 in the States soon. I'm doing the proto work on my 1200 coupe the next few weeks.
