Here I've got the hydraulic motor bracket fit up to the truck for the S12. I need to install the sprocket and weld the bracket to the cross-tube so the motor and sprocket/hub is centered within the truck. The cross tube will remain bolted in, and I'm going to weld a 2 bolt clip to the bracket that will bolt to the bolster. This will allow removal and modifications of the bracket, or changing it outright for a different drive system if needed down the line.
