    I totally understand but I was trying to remember...... I believe I only gave $500.00 for the Harmon less the wheel........... It was also worn out but I rebuilt it.......

    .

    I can only find offset described in relation to springer set ups tho, like in the attached pic. On a girder the front legs sit 4-5 from the center of the triple post depending on the length of the links. I realize that # changes as the legs travel in their j pattern. But to determine a base can anyone confirm the linkages determine offset in a girder setup?
    Those " linkages" you mentioned are called triple trees
