Thanks mate I'll have a read through it. And luckily I have some of the strong
number plate tape.

Pleasure. You have some ideas to consider at least.


Remember with anything like this you have one go at getting the alignment correct.

Another way to mount motors is to use TERRY TOOL CLIPS  They can be fixed back to back on a central ply plate mounted vertically so the motors are only separated by the thickness of the ply. The clips come in various diameters And two to a motor will  hold them firmly but they will be easily removable if needed. I don't know what happened to this link but hopefully the mods can fix it. If not Google  Terry Tool Clips
https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=terry+tool+clips&oq=Terry+tool&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l5.14582j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8       Here is the site for them. I think they are ideal for space saving mountings https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=terry+tool+clips&oq=Terry+tool&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l5.14582j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Two motors back to back with Terry's Tool clips on a central ply plate. Screw to ply before installation or Epoxy after install==https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=terry+tool+clips&oq=Terr&aqs=chrome.0.69i59j0l2j69i57j0l2.11676j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8==== Two to each Motor .Secure but easily removable if needed. A large range of sizes. To secure exactly back to back use nuts/bolts to secure.In  fact using them you can remove / install clips any time. Good luck.
