Please stay in the right hand lane and let the young at heart have a way to get around you.

PS, it is not the speed that kills the gears, it is from running loose, as I am sure yours are.
When set to the proper tension the belt on a 928 feel far tighter than any other engine I have worked on, and that is a lot of engines.
