Powercube tanks 4 and engine 1

Yesterday we made some really good progress. Tanks were tested. We cut the shaft on the engine. Bolt holes appeared in a new engine mounting plate. It was a really good time.

We used a rag with ice water to keep the shaft cool while cutting it with a portable bandsaw. 

we cut the shaft down by an inch (or so)
Next we'll be cutting and welding on the mount plates and tanks and looking for a shaft coupler. I believe the measurements were 1-1/8" engine side and 3/4" pump side.

the engine, frame and tanks came together and apart once again
