If you don't have one, they are not very expensive. Certainly easier than waiting for a new axle from 3dhs!

for you fellow E power guys, did you all just bolt on the e-motor box to the gas firewall? sorry for the silly question, but lack of the manual has me second guessing everything.
I found the pics showing the mount setup, (thanks Robj for posting all the pics/info) but wanted to know if any epoxy or other reinforcement is required.

I am working on mine, and my intention is to just bolt it up. As long as you use locking nuts, or at a bare minimum Loctite, I believe you may be ok...
As I am using a Hacker A60-6XS, I may just have some stand offs made instead of using the e-box, as the mounting bolts for the "X" mount do not line up anyway.. However, there may be a simple solution to this, in that most people hare having to install 1/4" spacers behind the motor, I may just make a 1/4" plywood plate with blind nuts in it to make up for the difference in depth, and the spacing of the mounting bolts.

I did not, just supplied bolts and nylocks.

On the motrofly, use the inner holes and no drilling required. Easier to look up my most recent motrofly install pic. 1" standoff will do it.

+1 I just re-mounted my motor because it wasn't perfectly centered on the firewall or cowl. Thanks to Bivens for sending me his unused e-box so i could do it without worrying about the swiss cheese'd firewall i had from my bad drilling. With the 5320 lightened version i just popped out the blind nuts, put a 5mm bolt with washer through the back side, added 3/4" and one washer worth of spacers, put a washer on the other side of the fiber mount and tightened the lock nut from the motor side. wasn't the quickest motor install ever due to washers trying to fly towards the motor but it turned out well and the stock holes ended up working great using the inner holes on the motor mount.

as for the e-box to gasser box i just used the supplied bolts, washers, and lock nuts and it hasn't budged.
