    Need a reduction gear for my Crusader 270hp engine, everybody arounds here uses Velvet, but I'm thinking about getting a PCM 1.23:1.
    Any feedback on this transmisions?

    They are almost identical in design and durabiility. I think PCM has better customer service.

    Matching program for engine model.
    If you can't find your engine you can match to power output.

    My options at this moment are a Velvet 71C 1.5:1 or a PCM 1.23:1.
    PCM has 9 degree angle and aluminion case but don't know if it's a durable as a Velvet and supports R.H. engine rotation.
    A rebuilt Velvet costs me the same than a brand new PCM.

    Any advice is cool

    Think all manufacturers off improtance can deliver clockwise or counter clockwise gearbox opon request.

    Just ask them first and find out.
