Step 3: Mount The Motor

 Remove the blower wheel from the Subaru blower motor, and prep the motor for use by cleaning it. Use the original nut from the shaft to hold on the new flywheel.

The motor mount is simply a 7.5-cm long piece of 6 inch polycarbonate tubing, glued to a piece of 8 inch square polycarbonate. The motor is held in place by 3 of 8-cm threaded rods and wing-nuts. The rods are screwed into 3 threaded holes in the motor support plate, and then through the 3 mounting tab holes of the original motor.
