Did that splined shaft unscrew from the armature or did you cut it off?

It may sound strange but I do not know.

I intend to do, my project one section at a time. There are so many people who did it I can not believe I would not find a way to do it for my jeep. At the moment I am at the coupling of the engine to the transmission.

It was cut by a machinist

Nice cut.
Did you do it on a lathe?

I know you have to make an adapter to duplicate the end of the crank so you can attache the flywheel to the shaft but how are you attaching the adapter to the motor shaft?
Interference fit? a Keyway? Welded?

Is the recess for the end of the clutch shaft coming out of the tranny? Are you going to slip a pilot bushing in there?


[edit] I see you clarified who did the cut. Still a nice job.. [/Edit]

This part I leave it to the machinist. I think it will make me a keyway

I was asked the question: Why not use a straight plate to connect to my transmission?

My electric motor was purchased used. The front part was cracked. The person who engineered the parts proposed to make the missing part of my engine directly on the plate instead of redoing the front face of the engine.

I just finished reassembling my transmission. It's the turn of the differentials to be inspected and cleaned. When the electric motor will be tested with the new parts, coupling plate and flywheel adapter, I will repaint everything.

The coupling parts are installed. I fix the transmission and I will be ready to do the first real tests with my electric motor. I will put a video of my test.

A small error in taking measurements on the adapter. It was necessary to remake other holes to fix the flywheel
