Where are you guys finding 8 & 9 tooth pinions to fit the TLT? The smallest I've seen in 48 pitch standard or metric is 12t.

I think you just don't know what you're talking about. I don't think it's physically possible to make a 48 pitch gear smaller than 10 teeth that will fit on a 1/8" motor shaft.

I dunno , Im no expert but I think the pitch of the gear is the size of the teeth (like the diff between fine and corse thread screws) & of coarse the # 9 being how many teeth are actually on the gear.. Like I said I dunno , just guessin
