Talked with Ilam who pointed me to the Solid Works eDrawings where I opened the models and found all the measurements:

Top hole

  • Holds DC Motor with OD = 1.083"
  • Flush with the bottom of the Motor

Middle hole

  • Holds the top part of the Bronze Bushing with OD = 5/8"
  • 1.181" below the Top Hole part

Bottom hole

  • Holds the bottom part of the Bronze Bushing (^OD = 5/8")
  • 1.102" below the Middle hole part

The center of all 3 holes are .866" from the back of the mount. The width of the mount is 1.339" (or 39mm). The width of each piece is .236" (or 6mm).

TODO: Build model in Sketchup
