What you ultimately do completely hinges on your vision.

I wonder if some one is making a kit with the drive extension and support bracket.
O.p. is there any indication...

No reason to have an old...

Cut two slots and drive wedges...
Bill, I think I'm in the same situation. Ill probably end up going with a similar solution. Thanks for the suggestion.
I bought some "patina" vaguely shaped like 1949 f3 yesterday. Since non of the wheel s wanted to roll it took a tractor to move it on to my...
[ATTACH] T5 for $100. Looks rough but its solid and world class.
