Hey. I’m building my coyote shortboard and need motor mounts. The problem is that there is very little space between the mount and enclosure
I have these bkb mounts, but they do not properly fit caliber two trucks.
If you have mounts that you think will work lmk. Or if you know trucks that will work with the bkb mounts (shorter trucks, this is a shorty)
If you can, try to find some of those legacy enertion mounts. Those were a shortboard’s dream
Or I found these off a
You can shim the mounts by cutting strips of an aluminum can and putting them around the truck. You’ll probably have to clamp it, unclamp and add another shim since they’ll crush little.
Hmmm. That’s a good idea. Thanks
Gotta drink a coke real quick
you could try using a drill with a decent bit and a bench vise to make the bolt slots longer and move the motor closer to the hanger, then chop some meat off the enclosure side.
Ooo. Thanks, yes that is a good solution. If I can’t find an off the shelf solution, I will go with that.
Or ill just give in and machine something
that’s no fun. Hacksaws are fun.
Welcome to my world. You need these, like
Hmmm idk about that haha. New cnc came yesterday just have to finish assembling. That’s fun
@kook about buying stuff from MBoards
Someone in here listed a link to some
It was MBoards I think
Maybe just try to find used ones.
I may be confusing “fun” with “visceral” again.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH I knew I felt a disturbance in the force… F**K mBoreds!
I give you presents and yet you just
No kidding. when I had them on the falcon they only worked with like 1" of riser. Not sure if thats an option for you but I can bring you risers this weekend.
As far as clamping them down, they worked with my wider cast calibers but needed to be clamped down until there was no gap at the clamp portion
Lol. Thanks robin. Not complaining, just want em to work.
They did not fit on my ecals and I need short trucks on this guy. I actually have some risers, thanks man.
hmmm and shimming them on the flat spots of the trucks? like just inserting some steel?
if you want your $ back just lemme know. Ill put em up for sale with a disclaimer
Nope. I bought em cheap, knowing they don’t fit caliber twos.
I will make em work or use em for something else
I sense many dremels in your future.
what about using your trucks as part of the battery wires such that the immense heat generated expands the metal enough to where the the clamps fit properly? Would make for really easy assembly and disassembly when cool
It’s a shame those mounts can seemingly only be found at Mboard. Usually I can find anything from Mboards on alibaba. Might take some more hunting. Ran across these though
Why they gotta do Tb so dirty! Didn’t even have the decency to remove logo
Haha that’s hilarious. The TB mounts do seem pretty short. May work, especially since they have angle adjust
