I'm with Velocette on this one , i fitted metal gears to my C2 sieg along with a 3ph motor ,vfd ,vee pulleys and two things bug me - gear noise and belts that squeak .
I will be re visiting this shortly and removing the gears altogether and changing over to poly vee belts .
I may use a simple two speed pulley system between the motor and a jackshaft mounted where the original C2 motor was located so i have a high / low ratio option .
I am thinking about a system that uses a driven pulley set on the jackshaft the are idling on roller bearings and drive to the jackshaft is via a sliding dog clutch that is splined to the jackshaft - a bit like how a motor bike gearbox works .
