PD,  Seems like it would be an infinite ratio friction drive as the rubber wheel moves in and out on the disc.

I wonder if there is a lever to move it?  That drive is commonly used on Snow Blowers.  For you southern guys, that's the white stuff that falls out of the sky during cold weather!  LOL

Rick ,

I just did a Google search and it seems to be called a friction wheel drive system . Friction wheel and traction plate or pulley .

Interesting .

Thanks for all of the pictures - I appreciate you sharing them. It's always good to know what happened at Portland.  I couldn't make it this year, but hoping it works out for next year.   Thanks again.
