That is an excellent idea. Find the top generator or alternator adjusting bracket. The most common you'll find will have a 3/8" slot in it and most tensioner/roller blade/skate board wheels use a 5/16/ bolt but they make bushings to take up that difference. Why didn't I think of that before I spent the time milling a slot and bending my bracket I think, if I scrounge through some of my old hot rod stuff, I have a chrome one.
Good idea.
