Hello, I just received my engine kit in the mail and am having a real pain installing the sprocket rag joint. The spokes on my wheel are extra thick, and cause the bolts to angle inwards when they are put through. This makes it so that there is no way that the metal pieces at the end will ever fit on. Do you think that it would be strong enough without the 3 metal end bits, and instead putting washers on the end of each bolt? I'm thinking that is the only way it will be going on there. Let me know if you think it would be strong enough with washers, Thanks. Picture: I know that the other piece of rubber goes on the other side, it is just a pain to get on just for a picture, and only makes the bolts angle in even more.
