Default Late Gearbox into 56 Pan

Hi All,

Need to fit a late 2 bolt nose cone gearbox into my 1956 pan. The only front gearbox mount I can find is a solid mount as per pic. Anyone got any better ideas as I don't want to use a solid mount.

from memory you need a split bus nose cone and hockey stick (not sure which year) and then the hockey stick then needs to have a dimple drilled in to it opposite the current one to accomodate the retaining grub screw
