Just make an adapter to make up the distance your short. Nothing says it has to be mounted exactly like it comes. I had to make a couple adapter plates to mount to my motors in order to use the rod set up. Works fine. As one guy suggested buy a longer rod and thread the ends. Problem is the end pieces have a very fine thread so your likely not going to find a threaded rod with fine threads in just any hardware store. As for threading the ends yourself you'll likely have to hunt down a die to cut the threads as well. Nice to have friends in a machine shop.
Ive got a machine shop right here in my office! LOL
OK I guess I just need to grab the one from vince or Salty and see what I can do with it. Better than spending $250+
I just need to see it in person to figure out what I need to do.
i got the fine treaded rod at napa when i made one last year i think it was 5.00 for 3 feet of rod
