During tear down, I pulled my 2:1 Redux gear assy with six Hex bolts from an "Adapterplate".
Exposed was a Drive gear. The adapterplate bolts to the back of the trans case. The Redux gear spilled some oil when removed, which tells me its part of the engine oil system.
For a 1:1, I think a new adapterplate(different) would pass the shaft thru a seal and to a drive flange. Mabey a new trans casing too... Sounds expensive, but the Redux gear assy is wanted by many, so you might be able to sell it to offset the 1:1 parts. I have a JPEG of my pulled Redux if you need it- direct email me.
