Mounting the motor

Written by admin. Posted in AC Traction Motor

Mounting the motor to the transmission involves two primary tasks:

  1. Adaptor plate design/construction – motor face to transmission bell housing face
  2. Shaft adaptor design/construction/installation – mounts flywheel to motor shaft

Here we have placed them shaft-to-shaft, level, and in their proper orientation to look for any conflicts on the bolt placement around the bell housing relative to the electric motor.

The primary thing to look for is places where a bolt from each side of the adaptor plate share the same location or overlap slightly, interfering with each other.

We are happy to report that there are no bolt location conflicts in the planned orientation. If there were a conflict, the motor could be rotated slightly one direction or the other to allow clearance, as long as the shafts remain in concentric orientation.
