Adapter Plate alignment2064 viewsI had a big aluminum plate made into a bell-housing adapter plate, and another big aluminum plate for the Impulse 9 motor.
In order to get everything lined up with the transmission shaft properly, we built an alignment tool.
It fit snugly into the hole in the bell housing where the transmission mounts, and was the same diameter as the centering ring on the motor.

Front Battery Box mounting frame3549 viewsSince the front battery box can't just sit in a nice pre-built holder (i.e. the bed of the truck), I had to build a support framework for it.
This box will hold 6 GC batteries.

Battery Hold Down Post Nuts3350 viewsI put a little weld in the bottom of each hold down flange nut so that the post can't be screwed in too far.
This is to prevent it being screwed down through the covering fiberglass at a later date.

Cables into bed6092 viewsThis shows how I mounted and protected the cables that run from the front of the truck into the bed.
All under-truck cables are in some kind of conduit, or have a shield between them and the ground.

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

Rear Battery box in truck5619 viewsThis is the rear Battery Box that will hold 42 Golf Cart batteries in the bed of the truck.
(Someday when hitech batteries are reasonably priced, I'll remove this and mount the pack under the bed.)
