Yea, Go to tractor supply or your local hardware store and pick up a couple L brackets. Bolt them in. If this does not work then make some braces for the L brackets.

Just take a strip of flat steel or angle iron and make a notch roe the hole on the back plate. Just weld it underneath cus is long as the thickness is turned up and you got the gas it should work and you can't even see it.or bolt angle iron on Esther side of the hole and it will work too.
