Minor update: mounted all 4 tires on the rims $40
Yep, it has a set of glow plugs; but they aren't connected to anything right now. (warm day in Florida, I didn't bother connecting the glow-plug relay)Wow, it fired right up - that's great!
Does that little engine have glow plugs?
I spent yesterday doing more measurements and mockups.
I decided to make the adaptor plate with provisions to be able to mount one of the two e-torque motors to it, but to hold off on actually mounting the second motor until I do some experimentation with the one mounted to the front.
That way I don't paint myself into a corner, but have the flexibility to add a second if needed.
So I am feeling good about progressing on the adaptor.
View attachment 657533I ordered a B&M 45195 precision shifter on ebay (slightly used) for $400 the seller is a new member, so slight risk, but we will see.
Photos look good, looks like it was installed, but I see no wear, and it comes with original manual etc., so I figured I would save $150 and get it used. I always choose used for things that aren't consumables if I have the choice.
I have the usual JK 'pops out of 1st gear' problem with this transmission, so I have wanted to buy one of those shifters for a while. I hope it fixes the issue.
Back to the garage tonight!
