if you ask me Kevin has been VERY SHARING, so sharing that Aeromarine is running with it, as for Ace Aviation I cant vouch for him, Ive done business with him ONCE and logistics and delivery were bad but quality and price was good. he uses SKF bearings or some sort of german bearing maybe FAG, in my hands their high quality machined parts and nice anodized finish, someone can help maybe by adapting a gear drive to it in mean time all we have is a belt drive so be thankful we at least have that!, the poly-v belt is the widest Ive ever seen and surely can handle the HP. IMO its pretty impressive for a belt drive. I think kevin has at least 30+ hours on the belt drive but he's not good about posting his total hours on his you tube channel, I have asked him to do so but no luck yet. This engine is set up ITS NOT for anything but light LSA or maybe some stout ultralights like my Reliant SX (heavy duty J3 kitten).If I recall the engine use ball bearings on the crankshaft and not the typical sleeve bearings, i need to look into that, I do know its a tapered output shaft.
