These photos begin with the shots of the adaptor plate . It turns out to be 20mm too thick (motor to gearbox) , so I couldn't get the combination in the engine bay. So back to the engineer for more machining - second photo is the final plate clearly thinner. Also therefore the coupling needed to be reduced & now also getting extra grub screw holes put in one half of the coupling to lock the three parts together , so that when the motor coupling half is screwed to the key & shaft , it will all stay as one.
The other set of photos are the final shots after fabrication, and internal cabin electrical connection of the heater.
Lastly are early shots of the two under car battery trays . These will now house just 20 of the 100ah CALB batteries. 11 others in boot. 5 each beneath each seat and now need to put 4 in engine bay. (So I get the planned 144v )
|You may remember this from previous - its the adaptor PLATE & COUPLING. Turns out it made everything 20mm too long!|
|Back to the engineer who machined 20mm off the plate and 11mm of one of the couplings so now the motor shaft sticks out. I cut this back - see next shot|
|Shaft shortened and locked onto shaft with grub screws fixing the key in the key way & another grub screw onto the shaft itself. note the holes in the three prongs -|
Got the two trays for the undercar batteries & started on the frame. One was too high ( rear) so again needed to re-think & decided to mount these 10 (not 14) like those in the front tray of 10, on their side. Now need to find a spot for a further 4 batteries - will probably use space in engine bay.
