      Jim, I need one additional constraint to be able to solve your problem; the vertical distance between the centerline of the wheel on the left to the centerline of either of the two wheels on the right. If the vertical height of the wheel on the left is centered between the two on the right, Dimension D will be 19.570". Because the path of the center of the wheel on the left is influenced by two focus points (the wheels on the right) within the constraints of the blade, it's centerline will actually describe an elliptical rather than radial path as it moves up or down.

        I forgot to subscribe to this thread, and 'lost it'. I apologize for that.

        PaulC, you are closer than the other 'contestants', but no cigar yet. You have ALL the info you need to solve this. Try moving that wheel on the left up or down, and see what differences it makes.
