The units that use the splined coupling between the output of the OD to the pinion stub shaft are the preferred arrangement. I believe this modification of the Borg Warner unit was designed by Bill...

I have used the extension brackets that Bratton's sells and they are very well made and fit well.

Re: Battery warmer
