Attaching the Cup to the Arm

First I eyeballed and cut two slit's on opposite sides of the arm and bent it to create a crookneck to go around the rear sprocket. I than tacked the cup and arm together and made a test fit... so fare so good. Next I made two crude gusset's to help support the arm on the cup and welded them in place on both top and bottom.

If you have to force it there must be a better way
