Hi, I have been trying to build a board for just over two years now and after collecting all the parts I thought I needed I am at a dead end. My first mistake was that I bought used motor mounts on this forum. I thought it would be a good alternative to buying off of torque boards but just ended up being a headache. They cost me 146 USD or 190.63 CAD including shipping and I honestly hate them. These mounts have caused a number of issues for my build including misalignment, scratching up the trucks paint and when I try to torque down the bolts it just twists and goes out of alignment.
The other problem is that the pulleys set screws get in the way of alignment and I can’t turn it around because the motor shaft isn’t long enough.
So if anyone could help me figure out the most cost-effective way to solve this problem, that would be greatly appreciated. P.S. my belt is also too short (HTD-5 255mm) and I need somewhere to get a cheap one in Canada
