An adjustable 7/8" rod, split in the middle, turnbuckle style used to put tension on the front ear82 viewsThe rod with the long arrow is adjustable. Flats are milled onto the rod below the starter to grip during adjustments. Just place a feeler guage between the back engine ear and the rod, adjust till the fit is reached, remove the feeler, then torque the back bolt which places that much tension on the front earbillyandmillie

Picture showing the complete setup, comes with both front and back grade 8 bolts66 viewsYou'll notice the loop on the front end. This was needed because the 2 holes on the front and back of the engine were not lined up. I needed to somehow fasten each end, and yet have the turnbuckle design for an adjustable fit.billyandmillie
