Thanks for the kind words fella's,
I had to make spacers on the lathe to get the mounting plate positions correct to perfectly sandwich the box section and get the right motor offset for the chain run, also the bosses that the side plates bolt into where made on the lathe, and the lathe was also used for the chain wheel hub.
This is the mounting box, you can see the bosses in it and the slots for adjusting the chain tension, the motor sandwiched between the plates is a perfect fit over it, when the 4 mounting bolts 2 from each side are tight the whole assembly is solid.
It appears that my pics are too big for the whole image to be displayed?
The motor, or probably its gearbox is noisier than i had expected, i did examine the gears to ensure there was sufficient lube in there, maybe it will quieten down when it is all bedded in? or is silence too much to expect?
Doing this has given me some ideas on how to do it better so another one may be coming along soon! are there any other good motors i could build a similar conversion with that run quieter, it must work through the gear set again?
