Genset mounting2337 viewsThis is a view from above the back over the genset rack. The chain is to keep anyone from stealing the genset while I'm parked.
I do need to come up with a cover for the power outlet end of the genset. While it's meant for outdoor use, it's probably not expecting 60 mph rain to be hitting it...

Setting up to couple the motors4085 viewsThis is how we setup to couple the motors. Since both ends of the coupler are heated press-fit, once it's on. It's on. Forever.

Flywheel adapter - oops, hole too big2137 viewsWe didn't read the caliper quite correctly, and accidentally bored the mounting hole for the pilot bearing a bit too big. (20 thousandths or so)
So we brazed in some metal and had to re-do that hole.

The other box has the 2 breakers for the charging system.

Version 1 Genset Rack3687 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.
