Adapter plate is here...

A couple of weeks ago I sent the clutch disc from my S-10 (actually I ordered a new one and sent that) to a machine shop specified by EV-America. They disassembled the disc and  milled out the a the center portion of the adaptor plate assembly from 1/2 inch 6061 aluminum. In the near future I will attach this plate to my S-10 transmission, take some measurements, and then mill the transmission mating holes for attaching the plate. Then I plan to cut down the excess around the corner and perhaps follow the contours of the transmission bell housing. After that I will attach the Advanced DC 9 inch FB1 electric motor to the adaptor plate and transmission.
