Default Re: About to start a build, quick question


I did my first over a year and a half ago, and still the motor is cast for the ancient heavy tubing- a steel shim inside a larger cast would still EASILY accomodate the older tubes, but make life so much easier for most of us.
as far as I know, the mototrs are still shipping with the old diameter-

When I mounted mine- I ground the stupid thing larger, not that difficult but still extra work.

I got longer studs from the auto store- they still had to be bent out and then back and it still scrtached the frame and creased slightly- but the motor was on with no adapter.

I still have to mount a 50 when I get back to Florida, and I'll probably just use the oversized u-clamp- but hate the extra weight-
