it's not that the backplate needs support..
it's just the incorrect way of using a series 40 TC and it will come and bite you sooner or later

use a seperate jackshaft as per Comets instructions, and run the driven inboard (may require a new driven spring if you bought a kit with backplate I'm afraid)

Jokes about german sausage are the wurst.
