Today I finally got this put together. My electrician friend came over and did all the heavy electrical thinking and after 4 hours or so this is the finished product. I used an old fuse box panel box. It already had the 4 holes in the bottom that I used for the bolt legs that will drop into holes I have yet to drill into the grill side shelf. Everything has been measured for height and should work ok. I cut the panel cover and used it to cover over the capacitor area. I used a large automotive hose clamp to clamp the capacitor in place with a couple thick pieces of hard rubber under and above it so the clamp did not dig in. The 3/8" coupler holes were  too tight for the spit and filing down the corners worked fine. However it was too tight for the motor shaft also and the shaft looked to be hardened steel so I drilled out the coupler 2 drill sizes larger and that works fine now also. It's a nice tight fit. I think the 1/2" coupler would have been sloppy. We plugged it in and turned it on and it runs fine. It's raining today so I can't go outside and put it on the grill. Pictures:

I did three roasts on Saturday of Kona, Sumatra, & Brazil. No burned beans, 1st and 2nd cracks easy to hear. Worked like a charm.
