Doctor, the operation was a success

Adaptor plate and assembly bolted to motor


Closer view so you can see my rough work


First coupling on motor shaft


Second coupling to attach to the gearbox input shaft


Assembly showing complete coupling and rubber "spider'


Gearbox connected to motor 


Hoisted on to work bench for inspection, yep the work bench is rated at 25 kgs. weight  and it's holding up at 80 kgs. Still have chain and hoist 


Oh, that's right turn it around the right way


Several hours of argy bargy 


Snug fit with 7mm to spare, well to tell the truth I had to cut 22 mm off of the motor aux shaft.


Modified the existing engine mount and yes a cigarette paper tight fit. 


Another view of the engine mount I know Dennis will be looking. Mad man is converting the same car


Controller and main contactor


Gearbox mount doing it's job



How do I tighten the grub screws on the coupler? 


That's right just drill a 50mm hole in the bellhousing


Yep I'm going to put an old orange bath plug with a chain in there 


Back to work tomorrow
