Hey Rebel, thats exactly what i have been investigating lately, i will need to machine up a slotted plate-spring tensioner which will probably be situated on the jackshaft although i will have to bench test its efficiency in real world terms, just need to get all the angles right first before i start butchering things up again, the morini i am putting on this thing has got some grunt, so i wont be rushing this build.
i have been planning on building this beast for years,, its gonna have that morphed-custom world war 2 look about it,, i am still sourcing parts,ie- guards, lights 4 litre custom tank, some sheet metal infil etc,, jeez i am excited just typing this,,
