It's nothing to be ashamed of, looks quite well though out, looking forward to seeing the finished product. John

Angle of axle is wrong, you need to have it in line with the prop shaft.
Straight line from flange to prop, not worried about angle of prop to engine, axle angle needs to be lifted up so that the prop is an extention of the pinion, if not will cause a lot of noise and wear in the u.j's.

Its the angle of the axle, not the prop.
Its a common mistake people make, i used to do it the way yours is till i was shown how much power you lose due to torsion!
