That could get complicated Frank as I would have to remove 2 guys to do it.
Then use the original turnbuckle as is and add 2 more turnbuckles to the new
equalizer plate. But the problem is that I need to be out 4-5' from the
anchor which means a short length of EHS and I dont want to chance running a
thimble thru a sharp edged equalizer. There are ways around it but it keeps
adding to the complexity which I'm trying to avoid.

That is definitely not going to happen!
