Interesting picture, but different from my GS three arm,' 77 ? Mine has two sets of mounting holes in the large ring. The large ring bolts to the spyder, with 11mm hex nuts on the rear, and smaller 6mm (thread) bolts and spanner type nuts for the smaller ring, which bolts directly to the large ring, with a spacer to account for the spyder thickness. The large ring uses the smaller diameter bolt circle, 100cm c-c, and the larger diameter bolt circle measures 127cm c-c. Sorry, no way am I trying bcd for this. I lost my protractor. There is not enough material on the 42t ring to enlarge the holes, or at least I wouldn't !

If I can get our camera working will try for pictures later.
