norvil-head-steady-worn-out-fix-t3798.html While I would really love the Comstock head steady I really like the simplicity of this one. It's certainly an improvement on the original iron one. I think there is a local Metal Supermarket and a 18in 2x2x3/16 piece is roughly $15. Then I found these ball joints. Both from McMaster-Carr for $15. Does it matter if they are right or left hand threads? I was thinking both right handed. I think the ball joints are the right size. What I should probably do is get the aluminum and then confirm the dimensions, unless Keith can give me more measurements. I wouldn't complain if there were more pictures too. :mrgreen: I also wonder if there is some way to mount the MkIII spring and if that might help suspend the engine.
