Man, I wish I had found this a week ago. Instead of using this, I went with a different approach - I replaced the X ends with stock Prusa MK3 ones, then designed some new Z bottoms and tops to make the Hictop i3 use Prusa's Z rod spacing. That way, the printer's X and Z axes match a stock MK2 or MK3, and so you I ended up using a lot of the stock Prusa parts.

(I ended up using this MK2S extruder with a BLTouch - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2303211 )

Oops, I forgot - I did end up using your extruder idler piece though, because I only had the old MK8 extruder bearing. So thanks for that! :)
