Does anyone know what horsepower the Gies Model 1 gear was rated for?
I have one here and before putting it behind my 7hp, (probably more like 10hp) Gray Model T, I would like to know if it can handle that much.
Thanks in advance.

Here is a 1908 Gies ad that provides some guidance in that regard.

I hadn't appreciated this was called a "Gies Gears" reverse gear. My 1908 Brooke engined boat uses this gear.It works well, just have to keep the brake band etc adjusted.
