After a quick look through those photos... I hope you're getting a bigger flywheel lol You need a much better bearing supports as well. If the flywheel isn't dynamically balanced then you will destroy your motors bearings. I too am not a fan of the belt or gear drive either. direct shaft drive is the way to go
Actually, a better description is that I haven't worked on it for the last year! Everything except the flywheel and mount was done a long time ago.

Yes, the new flywheel is bigger than the Robitronic, and will require a support in addition to the motor shaft. That is all addressed in the dyno thread.

You'll need to set up a suitable sensor for a brushed motor. The Hall sensor/trigger wheel sounds good, or you could just use a cheap/used sensored brushless motor for the sensors.

If you want to pursue this, we should move our conversation over to the dyno thread.
