Motor mounting plate for electric vehicle conversion


Steps to reproduce

Using a variety of Vernier Calipers, angle finders, steel rules, tape measure and 3D modelling software: Take front motor mounting plate and measure centre centre on the motor mount hole locations (including angle of the mounts). Measure replacement motor mounting hole locations. Using 3D modelling software design an adaptor plate that allows the new motor to mount in the stock location on the stock motor mounts. Ensure to take into account the height differences between the respective crankshaft locations and how they align with the gearbox.
