Re: chainplate followup
Yes you are right, both the photograph and the drawing in the link show a 2" bolt with 1-1/2" threading, but the notes to the drawing say the thread length could be 1-1/2" to full. If the bolts are like the photo and drawing, there would be a half inch unthreaded. If the actual threading were full as the notes allow, threads would bear on the chainplate.
