Definitely I have a file I could share with you. With the EV scene at the moment there are two directions: convert with new industrial motors or convert with used EV motors.
I chose the latter because it integrates several items that I know reduce the reliability and offers better ‘bang’ for buck.
I have a function diagram that illustrates it pretty well I’ll post up laterGlennmossModeratorJuly 3, 2019 at 8:23 pmPost count: 258
Here’s the functional schematic. The gray box is supposed to outline the motor that we used, so all of those parts plus the transmission were one piece. However, if you go with the industrial motor you will have to buy the motor, transmission adapter, and motor controller separately. There are obviously more parts then just this, but it gives you a better idea. It definitely isn’t cheap just yet, but hopefully once the market becomes saturated with EVs we will see this being a much more enticing option. If you want a further breakdown on the parts we used email me email@example.comJohn JonesModeratorJuly 4, 2019 at 7:26 amPost count: 7863

I got to shake this young mans hand yesterday… ANOTHER recent grad I know…. Mechanical Engineer!!! Fuck man!!! Your the shit Glenn… I’d be happy to help you with your truck when the time comes… 😎GlennmossModeratorFebruary 28, 2021 at 5:59 pmPost count: 258
Thought it was time to give the bug some love so I got a new rear bumper and ragtop. Refit the ripped and tired ragtop with new Wolfsburg West vinyl
Sanded and prepped the wood on the roof rack.
Next had to replace the rear bumper mount which had rusted through
Fabbed a replacement panel and was planning on welding it today. However yesterday I was invited to compete in my first sailing race so I threw the fender back on and drove over. On the way, some lady decided to make a illegal turn right across me and there was no escape.
Luckily I’m ok but the bug got squashed 😢RustabusParticipantFebruary 28, 2021 at 6:18 pmPost count: 2294
