    Default Need to raise replacement electric motor a little over 22mm

    Hello, I have a silo drier fan that I am repairing.

    I have purchased a new electric motor, but the frame is slightly different - I need to raise it 22.5mm to fit the existing blower fan frame.

    What do people suggest for this?

    I'm leaning towards square tubing with washers to make the difference.

    Pretty much anything of the right size, that is strong enough not to collapse, will work.

    And when you get it right, run a quick weld bead down all the spacers/junk to lock them.

    The click lock flooring is a nice flat material that can be stacked for thickness. Not great if it gets too wet.

    I would prefer solid. Chances are the tubing will oil can over time and allow the bolts to come loose. Lots of vibration in your scenario.
