OK, you plunger guys, I have a question. Is the duplex brake plate the same for both half-hub and full hub?

Tommy, I don't have a parts

Tommy,
I don't have a parts diagram for the full hub version, I only know that part #251 4 63 630 01 is a duplex brake plate. Obviously the pressed in brake shoe mounts are longer but I was wondering if the casting is identical.
Also, does a big Hoske tank need special handlebar risers or hardware for a plunger?

brake plate/hoske tank

I believe the casting is different for brake plates, full hub will have a larger over all diameter. As for the Hoske tanks, it seems no two are the same. I could have used my handlebar risers for the R51/3 but I would have had to reverse them(bar forward of mount) to clear my Hoske tank. It just looks weird so I went with risers for the R68, hey it"s just more money!! Front mount was straight forward, on the lower aft I made a bracket out of angle iron that I fastened to the factory tank mount. My big problem was the bolts for tank to my made bracket where not perpendicular to the bracket. This required a two piece washer to allow for the slight angle of bolt. The washer is used by aircraft manufactures Boeing and I think McDonnell Douglas. I would have dig deep to find a P/N. Good Luck
Jim

Jim, it sounds like it's going to be an adventure mounting this thing. Thanks.
