Motor Removal

Today I removed the motor from the Electric Booger. It took a grand total of 50 minutes. It was almost like removing a starter from a Peterbilt.
I inspected the motor coupler because there is unfortunately no way to do so when the motor is installed. I just have to trust that everything it tight (and nothing that is not supposed to move is not moving) and that it will get me to work on time.

The good news is that the coupler looks very good. Thanks to the excellent machining work of my friend Matt VanTol, the set screws holding in place were still tight and there is absolutely no abnormal wear on the splines:
Just a bit of rust. Maybe I will put some grease on it when I assemble it this time.
