Boring the hole in the motor coupler2266 viewsHere we are boring the hole for the motor shaft. 1/2 the hole has to be a larger diameter since it's coupling a tail shaft to a main shaft.

Bigger holes in the Impulse 91830 viewsWe decided that the rather small bolt holes in the end bells of the Impulse 9" motors were just too small.
So we drilled and tapped all of them out to a 7/16" bolt thread.

Version 1 Genset Rack3625 viewsThis one was nice in that the Sparrow "rear panel" would just slide into the tubes. Just had to extend the wiring to reach.
The problem was that with all the weight of me and Genset, it would bottom out when going over big bumps.
