The Adaptor Plate Arrives!!

Well, it took way longer than I'd hoped and was promised, but it's here. Check out this aluminium loveliness.

Here's a close shot of the taper-lock hub that mounts to the output shaft of the motor. That is one fine piece of machining. Notice the little raised ring where the idle bearing for the transmission shaft will rest.

I still need to wait for the transmission to arrive. Probably tomorrow or Thursday. Then I can mount the whole thing up to the car. Before that though I can start working on getting the hub and plate mounted up to the motor. When I measured everything earlier, it looked like the Warp 11 motor should just fit over the subframe. Only installing it will tell.
