I think, the time or two I machined 4140 prehardened, I treated it more or less like stainless steel. Should get you in the ballpark as a start point anyway.

Even .020-.030” of warp for what you’re doing would be a PITA. If you have extra material you could try hardening one and seeing what it does.

For ceiling fans I usually mount a wide (2x8 or wider) piece right behind the box, allows me to add more screws for extra strength. Keeps the flex and vibration down too.

For radials yes, you want to keep them rotating the same direction. So most vehicles front to back, same side.

Chances of O1 staying straight when you harden it is slim. Even when heating it in a furnace and doing everything as best as possible, it still seems to warp.
