Question 3.6 conversion - 993 engine hanger question

Would these 1.4-in offset adapters for the 993 hanger - courtesy of Rick (silver911rdb)* - work for putting a '95 3.6 into an '85 Carrera with a 915, rather than bending it? Going to a single pulley, but the 3.2 hanger's nixed as A/C's staying.

Or is some other offset required - one 3.6 conversion pic in these forums showed a different, smaller (≈1/2-in) bent offset.

*I found Rick's post (#16) at Let the 3.6 fun begin and below is a drawing I made using Rick's original sketch (hope posting this drawing was OK, Rick)

Thanks folks!

I just bent mine and welded a reinforcement on the back of each side, worked great for me,
I was going to go the adapter route, but it was no prob to bend and weld -vs- having the adapters made.

Cudabnu, thank you, and that's a nice-looking job on your hanger, too!

Uwanna, my thanks to you! It was seeing these same pics of your hanger a month ago (followed the link in your post in that link I quoted above) that set me off in that direction - really like the idea!

I was completely content this was the way to go until seeing some conversion pics showing a smaller offset on the hanger, so it's really the amount of offset I'm worried about. Both your cars, and the others here I can find where pics are posted, appear to be earlier 911 tubs - 74 thru 80 - and I just want to make sure my later car requires the same offset. It may just be the different offset is for cars using a G50, or something else NA to my conversion.

I have a machinist buddy I'm trading favors with, and he's going to make the adapters and weld it all up with the one-piece Rennline reinforcement gusset (see their pic below), I just want to make sure on the offset before he goes to town!

Helps to have one to trade too - trading machining/welding for electronic design
