Like this one? I remember seeing a photo of someone here who was working on a similar design but I never saw any follow up report of how it worked. He used longer studs in the rear of the head and a wide strap that joined them to the frame. He had to remove some of the fin material but it wouldn't have been enough to compromise cooling.

Wish I could find that old thread but it was several years ago.
