Motor Adaptor Update

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Well, I’m going to use a different machinist to create the motor adaptor.  It’s going to be a big project, as the current motor is only 9″ in diameter and the new motor is about 13.5″ in diameter.  So we have to move the rear battery pack up 1.5″, and create a new motor mount for the motor – so it will be a squeeze fitting it in.

Plus, we have to mill a brand new motor adaptor – this will mate the motor to the transmission.  This adaptor has to be precisely a certain length in order for the clutch to work properly.

Work starts on monday.  Will keep you posted on the progress.
