Correct, the axles were moved aft 4 in to rduce the tail wheel load, Early Toos had TW loads maybe 140 lbs, which rolled the tires off the rim and worse. 4 cyl engined a/c benefited from the mod. others used a longer eng mount. Charlie has the original gear and sounds like it works well with the heavier radial.
Best, Dave
