OK, so now that I am back from vacation I get back things going again.

Right now I am trying to get my axles back into the transmission, then I will bolt down the last two motor mounts. Once that all gets today, I will do a test on 12 volts to make sure everything is spinning correctly and the clutch is aligned.

Then comes my next project: hooking up the A/C and P/S. Has anyone used a treadmill motor to do this? I have a 130 volt 2.5 HP treadmill motor that I think will do the job to run those two. Solectria used a 1 HP PM motor to run the stock GEO Metro A/C compressor, so I'm hoping this 2.5 HP can run the A/C and P/S.
