The road so far…

I machined the motor mounts out of 3/8ths aluminum plate, which was way over kill… but I had it laying around.

Also,

1) How tight should the 5/16 coupler nut be within the middle assembly.. it moves around freely (up and down, it does not rotate)

2) I think I might have been off a little when I did the corners on the motor mount.. do I need to stick another fender washer between the bearing and the mount to keep the belt on the bearing?
