From-scratch build for wheel steering (hardware)

Some much better photos and a longer video here:

I thoroughly recommend this type of motor - as I said, it has a lot of torque, has a duty close to what's intended for an AP and its worm drive reduction is beautifully machined. As you can see I have it wrapped in Denso Tape so I can see it lasting a good long time. The photos show the belt off, on the sprockets but not in tension, in tension - and the latter two positions from the lever side.

if someday I could adapt my outboard motor it would make an incredibly powerful and efficient wheelpilot. I would use a smaller motor probably.
