Primary Drive Options (open belt)

been a couple years since i built the last one. Now getting started on my new build at Axe's 300 Gripper build project.

As i get ready to select a primary drive, thought I'd see what may have changed in the last few years. I used an open belt BDL on most builds. normal 3" for less than 100" engines, outer bearing support for bigger engines. Besides not working well with a spyke starter (both blamed the other), always worked well.

This round thought i'd look around more. I notice a lot of you use the Primo's. Any particular reason? also thought about the PM ones if i end up using their hand/foot controls.

Curious what your preferences are and why. thanks!

also, is there a difference in ratios on a primo compared to the BDL? i guess i need to figure that out too if i go primo before i order the sprockets.

might be good to do a search on here since you haven't gotten replies. i know the general consensus from those who've been around is that the primo unit is a better built, better engineered piece, but i cannot say why, because i don't know why myself. but i do know it's been discussed more than once around here, and as with most topics, you can find an assload of debate on the topic with just a short search, probably get more info than you care to read.

Thanks, did a little searching, and there's another recent thread on it...

Help to choice an Open Belt Primary

definitely leaning toward trying a primo. never had any real trouble with the BDL, but might as well try something new.

consider this thread moved over to the link above...
