This week Ivan made up the motor mount bracket and the bracket to secure the right axle "hanger bearing". We installed them last night. Will post some pics later.

So!

The motor is now bolted into position, with the Lovejoy coupler attached to the transmission. We just need to tighten up a bunch of bolts on the adapter plate and drivetrain mounts.

I'm going to try figuring out my golf cart controller later today ... in preparation for the SPINNING OF THE WHEELS ceremony sometime this week - on jack stands. To be followed, possibly , by our first electric test drive.
