modding the pan does seem a bit more economical
I have a welder and some small scrap that would work im going look into this as my first option. I'm going to pull it tomorrow make some templates and go from there. i'll post pics
Right now the motor is about 1 to 2 inches back to far now because I can't go anymore forward (refer pic 2,3,4) and I need those inches.
Thanks ericnova72 for your input.
Thanks cobalt327 thats the same gasket that I have now so our brains are workin the same I guess
