Time to replace the old master cylinder and brake lines. The proportioning valve will be in the way of the big battery box, so i'll move that at the same time.

Test fitting the flywheel adapter from CEV. The adapter boss they supplied was tapped for unf threads. The Firefly is metric, so the flywheel bolts didn't fit... Isn't Canada meant to be METRIC too??? GRRR!

It appears that all the adaptors available from EV conversion companies are made in the US and all have UNF threads.. The WORLD is METRIC.. I wonder why they are taking so long to catch on!

Grrr..Out again, can't make it fit! My supplier hadn't told me that I had to drill out the end of the motor shaft to allow the gearbox input shaft to fit inside it... He'd sent me a very out of date set of instructions... Drilled and fitted now.
