Boring the hole in the motor coupler1920 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.

Adapter Plate alignment finished2081 viewsThen we slid on the Motor adapter plate.
This allowed us to drill the holes to bolt the 2 plates together, and put in a couple of locating pins between them so they can be taken apart and re-assembled without shifting.

Each has a separate breaker, and only 1 breaker can be ON at a time due to a mechanical interlock.
