For the Surplus Center 10-1783 I had to do it a little differently. Since the base is not wide enough to line up with the slots in the 10er motor mount casting, I welded two heavy duty washers to the base at the edge of the treadmill motor mount. I used the rear holes in the treadmill motor mount to attach it to the controller plate with flat head screws. I drilled two more holes in the controller plate to line up with the 10ER motor mount slots. I built several units like this and they work great.
Here is another treadmill motor which had a more standard base but the hole spacing was not right for the 10ER motor mount. I just welded on two 1/4 x 1" straps with holes drilled to line up correctly. Also show is one of those threaded mount flywheel poly-v pulleys which I modified by cutting a standard v-belt slot on the metal lathe. This also worked out fine.
This was my first dc motor project for the 10ER. It was a GE series dc motor rated at 2 HP and from the Surplus center. It came with a controller plate drive so I had to make an enclosure for it. It had a cooling fan on the rear which was exposed so I built an enclosure for it from a coffee can. It worked great. I didn't have the tachometers at that time so I used a manual tach and marked the rpm settings around the control pot. Fortunately this motor was made to mount on a standard resilient motor base mount so I just had to find the appropriate base for it.
