13/Nov/12 ICE removed. Motor awaiting pickup
13/12/12 Kostov 9 arrived, have a coupling at the engineers
to work with clutch centre to make complete coupling
17/12/12 one half of coupling bored so as clutch plate
spline section will fit. Did not machine this part entirely
but left a sort of cross. The end of coupling then machined
to take this cross and machine screws hold the spline now in
20/12/12 gearbox.coupling and Kostov 9 now with engineer to
fabricate a mounting plate etc.
12/4/13 still waiting on engineer to fabricate plate
18/05/13 Motor & Gearbox back from engineer - great work but super expensive -also had him also
fabricate A/C pully for opposite end of drive shaft. Now bench running the motor to bed in brushes
18/5/13 Dismantled dash board to extract heater from the heater/air con housing. Installed ceramic
144v heater into body of old water heater, micro switch on case of housing to prevent heater cooking
the housing without airflow, and led lit switch on dash panel as additional safety measure. Now to
move onto mounting motor/gearbox in car! Have massively modified project time line out!!
