I think they're going to work out perfectly for this project. I'm still working out sealing as the external seal footbolts don't fit in the recesses behind the axle and the DHO seems to take slightly smaller diameter wipers than the later dual lip resiwipers. An O-ring and washer at the step on the plungers should work and maybe I can run a radial shaft seal in the recess below the wipers.

I spent this morning stripping the old, cracked sticker set with boiling water, then cut and polished the frame, wiped down with windex and installed a NOS sticker set (unfortunately, at this stage missing headtube and seat tube decals).
My chain tugs arrived so in my excitement I did a parts mockup today as I have nearly everything now. Waiting on a shifter (I'm going to cheat and use M810 Saint, it's grey and 9 speed), a new seatpost, and some red V8 Mags to match the frame.
