Here is a shot of the CAD design of how I'll mate the motor to the transmission. The motor is hanging out to the left, the big flange thing is the adapter plate, and the shaft couple is in the center (half of it's colored blue).

And here is a cross-section in case anybody would like to peruse it. The motor is in black. This is a little reversed from the photo of the CAD. Oops.

  1. Hello, I am in the very early stages of planning an ev conversion of a BMW 2002. Any chance you could share the CAD file for the motor adapter plate and the motor mount - please?
