Cam guide CCT?

Anyone have a photo of where the CCT meets the the chain guide? Just curious how critical the shape is of the CCT's mushroom end. I can feel in the hole with my finger that its a rough sort of "dent" in the guide there, but that's about all. I was wondering if a standard sort of "cap nut" or "acorn nut" shape would cause any problems if simply spun on the end of a long bolt to replace what's in there now.

Probably not, but red Loctite would be a good idea to go with it.

On the cap? rgr that. I have some JB weld though since its going to be permanent. Would that work okay inside?

I just finished putting my first version on.

What i am thinking about doing for version two is getting rid of that long neck which basically just eats space since there is only about an inch and a half of plunger movement from its base point. I don't like that the plunger is wobbly in its free standing position and there really isn't any reason to have one part shoving into the butt of another.

So version two is going to saw the neck in half and use a tailored nut on each end to support the axle. I can file the keys into a flange nut and use the existing retainer ring to hold it in place. And instead of that goofy stop nut, going to use a standard lock washer on the rear since adjusting that nut is a pain in the butt after the first one is setup.
