    If you have round flanges...Just clock the new pattern in between your existing holes. Thats the beauty of round flanges if you got um.

    Toy pickups do have more slip than the stock Cruiser....6" vs 4.5" IIRC. However, the bolt pattern is different, so it's still gonna take some ingeuity...

    Is the shaft too short or is it a angle/binding issue? Some gentle pencil grinder work at the yokes can be done to increase it's working angles.
