    I have fiddled with a few Gear drives, but ya know, a fresh top quality chain works real good.

    I won't argue that the gear drives are cool, but the stock type chain is fine.


    Just sayin

    Unfortunately, these have all been discontinued. There was one company who made his own clones, but even he quit producing them due to lack of demand. I don't know of any place to purchase new. You will have to check eBay and other places for NOS choices.

    A good fresh timing sprocket set and a new chain will give you a lot of happy miles....

    Agree... That's what I did for our 6.5 build a couple of months ago. I bought a new chain from uniquediesel.com for a good price. It was easy to install and it should work well for this mostly stock build.

    I have replaced the chain only on several 6.2/6.5 builds.

    Normally the sprockets do not wear....Chain just stretches
