    I have a 9a that I'm almost done refurbing. the PO had the motor mounted on the backside of the drive unit. I think he did this to save space and fit a home made chip pan. it uses short pieces of 1/2" pipe as spacers. seems to work ok. might help you save some space

    lost a couple of parts to a 9a

    I was able to find a picture online. from there I made one from 3/8" bar stock. the original piece is 1/2" but I didn't have any around. luckily the dimensions aren't too critical so I was able to cobb this together with a 5" grinder with a cutoff wheel and a drill press

    I bought a pretty beat up 9a this spring, and I've been slowly tearing it down and cleaning and painting it.
