Pics of the mystery parts I've been talking about...

Click to zoom...

Above: tranny with adapter plate & motor end bell in place

Customized Lovejoy motor/input shaft coupler

Eploded view... Ughh, bad choice of words.

The reason this was somewhat difficult: internal splines on motor (armature shown)

Potential problem? Compare diameter of motor splines welded into lovejoy, to splined tranny input shaft diameter. About 2/3 the size. Weak link in the chain???
