we use a donovan cam drive with a pioneer mag drive to put the mag in front of the odd cylinder head. you can also use the newer milodon cam drives with the pioneer but it requires another adapter ring to mate them together.
i think you can get them from brendan murrry (408-266-3324). his website is: www.racecarparts.com brendan is tops when it comes to reliable bbc racing parts.
or from jeff fowler at www.fowlerengines.com
salut claude vas voir sur WWW.RBSSUPERCHARGERS.COM ,front drive très belle pièce.
We use a Mike Dunn (from TX) offset piece that I like. Runs the mag off the shaft and the fuel pump off the belt driven side.
Nice piece if you have room in the front of the engine.
JD2 makes a real nice piece and its fairly cheap but good quality.
sorry, this might help http://www.jd2chassis.com/:D
Give my grandpa George Sitko in California a call - 562-243-0482. He has built front drives, really nice pieces.

anybody have the phone # to Pioneer? or a shematic to one?
is the lower gear on the spud shaft a standard chev type?
If by spud shaft you mean the gear attached to the cam gear (it lays horizontal) than no, its not a gear you can buy from the local parts store.

Anyone have any experience using a MSD 44 amp mag with a Pioneer drive?
What wears first? I am assuming the bronze gear on the mag base, I have backlash lots causes timing to bounce around by 20 degrees, but my bronze does not show the standard worn out pattern....
i run the pioneer drive on my bbc and turn an msd12
i can tell you the pioneer drives can be very very finicky. i made the mistake the just installing it the first time and found the drive gear didn't turn 100% true... talk about some tore up shit! now that i have trouble-shot it and know it's attitude i can put it on every time without problems. i ended up having to make a few bronze spacers/shims to get it to work perfectly. definitely not a bolt on in my opinion
at the PRI show a few weeks ago we spent some time with RCD folks... they have what i feel is hands down the best answer for a front mag drive on a bbc. it's similar to a pioneer but the gears are self-contained in the unit and it simply goes on the fuel pump extension... great design
We have SM IV and ours retards about 15 degrees at idle. I've posted about this before asking for possible ideas to solve it or if anyone else's does it.
Jeff Fowler would have 44/Pioneer experience.
spacers one which end of the pioneer drive?
I like the RCD dual front drive set up. It bolts up to your front cover which means your mag is parallel to the ground. If you have the room up front. With this set up my timing doesnt move.
Can't beat the Sitko drive, its solid, sticks the mag out front and out of the way, less $'s than RCD and George will custom make the extension the length you want.
I agree on the Pioneer. It takes some thinking to get it just right. I did some home work and check with people who ran them before I installed my customers supplyed part (the Pioneer ) and unfortanutly he crashed it on the first run so I cant say to much more. I ended up flipping the gear upside down and machined 20 thou off the long side with no teeth. Then I relocated the roll pin hole in the gear. Timming did not move but like I said it only went 1/2 track. I like George Sitkos the best and it comes with tech and a new friend. He has a heart of gold.
So you moved the Pioneer gear closer to the cam?
Yes but from the bottom side because it looked like the gears would ride better. I kinda wish there were more runs on it so I know if it worked right or not. The instruction page sucked. O well on to the next project
