I have very little progress to report:

- working on the motor mount for the opposite drive end of the motor. The drive end couples to the transmission, the opposite side is not quite lined up for the old motor mount but it should work OK. My metal fabrication skills are poor.
- Working on the mount for the controller, that connects to the motor mount and the transmission
- working on the support for the passenger' side axle, from the controller mount

- got the fittings (angles, reduction, clamps) and the pump rough-fit to the radiator. No power to test as yet. No connection to the controller until the controller mount is done.

- got the controller, contactors, fuses, and various other electrical stuff rough layout on a copy of the backplate of an enclosure that seems like it might fit OK over the controller. The top will be plexiglass and transparent so you can troubleshoot a couple of things with the cover on.

So lots of planning and not so much to show for it!
