New adjustable engine stabilizer

The original engine stabilizer was doing the job pretty well but I did notice that under high revs the belt would flap about a bit. That would suggest to me that it needed to be tighter. In addition when I added the Doppler variator the left peddle crank would just hit the variator nut. So I decided to make a new stabilizer but as I didnt know how much longer it needed to be. I decided to make an adjustable one out of angle iron for added rigidity. I installed it on the second hole and now the peddle clears the variator 'just'.
So i will have to see how it performs.
