Default Brock Blades on Bensen Hub Bar

Will the Brock blades fit the Bensen hub bar or are they completely differant?

Mike, the very early Brock blades would fit the Bensen hub, but later Ken changed the pitch block bolt hole spacing for better load distribution and these would not fit the Bensen hub.
You can adapt them to fit by making new pitch blocks. I have the drawings "somewhere". I'll try to find them tomorrow and send you a copy if you're interested.

Thanks for the offer Pete but I think I'm staying with the original plan of Dragon Wings. I had just found a set of brand new, still in the plastic Brocks but without a hub bar. The Dragon Wings will be better anyway.
