Thank you Carlton. I will give that a try, although there isn't much adjustment to the striker plate. I may have to try to notch the holes.

Joe, the correct T5 depends on what ratio of rear end you'll use. Please send a PM or email me at jon_goodman@yahoo.com if you want more info.

If your striker is set so far inboard that it is only latching on the safety latch, you should have enough play to move it out to catch the primary latch.
