Tom, you are right. You must be employing your surgeon's eye, because that is a subtle thing to notice. I have changed that angle simply because I need to get my hand in there for various things, and, also, I don't want to be cursed at by tomorrow's repairmen. Although the greater angle of the rod (more towards the back) gives a greater mechanical advantage against the torque of the neck, I think the shallower angle is still more than adequate, and allows you access to the interior.
