Over on "the other" forum there is a poster named XYZER who made up the offset bolts, they were out of stock for a long time and I am not sure if he made more. I made mine up in the shop.

The Microcogeneration pages, the other forum.

I bought a offset bolt from XYZER when I built my engine two years ago.  It worked great, and without it I dont think my engine would have ever been reliable due to excessive clearance and wear.  It is members like XYZER who have the talent and equipment to create a fix for these types of problems that make these engines feasible for serious use.
