Anyone have experience swapping battery plates? I have a used Flyer LE which is V mount, I want to make it Gold Mount. I know I could get adapters but I'd like the permanent mount to be gold mount, I'll buy V mount adapters as a secondary option for V mount jobs. I spoke to Terry West and he says the one thing that could be tricky is that there may not be holes drilled for the gold mount pattern on my V mount Flyer. Might need to machine new holes. The wiring is pretty simple. Any experience / advice?

I changed out the V-mount plate on my Zephyr to AB. It is just a basic +/- pair of wires. Just unscrew the old plate, un-solder the leads, then solder them to the new plate (double check the polarity) and screw the new plate back down. I imagine it's just as simple on the Flyer LE, but sorry I don't know about the holes.


On Zephyr, the battery bracket plate has holes for both V and AB mounts already, but mine had pre-sunk nuts for only V-mount. I bought some lock-nuts and used the screws that came with the AB plate to secure it.

I'm also making the AB switch to an old Flyer. I've searched online for AB Gold mount schematics to see if the mounting screws will match up with the Flyer plate as is and coming up short. Anyone know if I can just slap a Gold Mount plate onto this Flyer plate or will I need some sort of intermediary adaptor plate? The V Mount had a rubber gasket and it attached to a thin metal "plate" that had a Panasonic sticker on it. This Panasonic plate actually mounted to the sled.


Thanks all!
