Struts and crankshaft mounting

Pulled a marathon forging session this afternoon, and now have 2/3 of the pump arm mounting struts ready to go. I went ahead and curled the ends of one into the decorative spirals, just to see how it looks. I definitely like the look, now I just need to do the remaining 2 struts and figure out the pillow block mounting up top.

I also tried a temp mounting of the crankshaft. I'll need to tweak the crankshaft some more, it's not quite true enough right now. But I'm happy with the mounting, though. Tomorrow I'm going to go ahead and cut out the hole in the decking for the pitman arm.
