Old engine is off to be scanned

The old 3 cylinder engine is with Pack & Send to go to Auckland for scanning at FormScan 3D. We’ll get a 3D model and some DXF out of it, and combined with the HPEVs motor models we can ensure that the motor mates up to the gearbox, and that the front and passenger-side motor mounts are in the right place. Rhino 3D is the likely tool of choice here, before CNC machining the parts.

Simple Green did an awesome job of cleaning / degreasing the old engine too. Much better than the canned “degreasers” you can buy for a few dollars each.
