    flipping the overload will do the same thing as a zero rate. you can weld zero rates together and they are safe to use, dont know if you want to go down that route... maybe you can fab up some new hangers too?

    That sounds like a more legitimate idea than welding some zero rates.

    ooorrrrr
    give Stephen at ORD a call and see what he can do for you with a 2" zero rate. From what I hear he is great to deal with, and he sponsers ck5
