However, it appears to need a resistor to work properly and doesn't come with gear drive.

As Dan says you just won't be able to switch borrow caps, rotors etc. with other Rovers on the trail.

The gear drive is not a problem, you remove the gear from your old one and install it on the Mallory unit. It is held in place by cross pin, so a little bit of drilling is all that is necessary.
