On to installing the upgrade idler system kit. This portion is more complicated than the hull brace so I've been taking my time to read through the directions multiple times. Maybe Robert can chime in as I work through it. I want to make sure I take my time to get this installed correctly.

Here is the current placement of the idler arm - is this approximately correct?
Next up is to prime the idler arm and wheels and hopefully get this thing permanently installed.
