Seems like my idea of using markits wheels is not a good idea if I am understanding what I have read correctly but just to add some further information onto my idea, the thought was to also use the original shouldered screws that hold the connecting rods in place but the hiccup woukd have been working out slthe size of the stepped hornby crank pin.

Well if the Hornby shouldered screws fit the holes in the Markits wheels, you're half-way there - IF that is, the shouldered screws themselves fully accommodate the thickness of the rods. If half of the rod thickness is accommodated by a shoulder/step on the pin/boss of the Hornby wheel, you'd need to find a way to emulate that provision.
