Some Conversions are set up nice for A/C. this S10 was especially a nice set up.
Remember… when you are sitting at a Street light, your Electric Motor IS NOT turning, so for a brief period of time, the A/C is not working, but that changes with the LIGHT changing to GREEN and your EV moving ahead.
THIS baby is going to ROCK AND ROLL on all these cells !!
This ASSISTED CONVERSION took 19 days from Start to Completion! But these two guys WORKED 8, 9 and sometimes 10 HOURS in a day to get it done on our customers time frame !
We are so Proud of Phil !! He really did a great job getting this done!
NEW VW Conversion in the shop this week !! Mitch hailing right here from Florida is converting his WW Bug to 100% Electric. His Son Donny, an exchange student and his daughter are all on board helping out at the GREEN SHED !!
1979 R686 MACK TRUCK
IT LIVES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It past DOT in TEXAS !!!
of gravel. The truck and trailer together with the empty trailer weighs 34,860
lbs. The weight of the load by its self is 47,920 lbs gross weight
82,7800 lbs. On the way back with the load of gravel that weighs more
than the truck the performance was about the same . With 2 amp on the
field the motor will top out at about 400 amp . With the field at full
power the motor’s RPM is so low that the automatic tranny won’t shift
and max amps are about 150amp. Right now Scott ( my customer) is using
200 ah Real Force (96 cells) and the plan is for 4 sets of them giving
800 ah . The 10 miles trip used 96 ah or 30kwh. I was expecting better
performance than this as the 10kwh = one gallon rule with the truck
getting 7 mpg , it should get about 20 miles on 10 kwh. The automatic
tranny makes lots of noise and vibration so this may be where the loss
is . Another factor might but that the diesel engine set up in these
trucks is more efficient than car gas engines. Scott is very happy ,
with the set up and that’s what counts

January 14, 2012 …….. WELCOME MICHAEL R. Mike is participating in our “ASSISTED PROGRAM”.
Michael has a 2001 Honda Civic he wants to convert from Gas to Electric. He and steve started this project on January 14th.. This is a “no rush job” , as Michael has time and money, he will come to our shop and work on HIS project. His GOAL is to have this converted and READY for SHOW AND SHINE at our 14th Annual Electric Car Rally on April 28th !!
Come on Folks.. give this man some applause !!! Lets see if he can do it !!
This is great hands on experience for our customers. Assisted Program is only $45.00 per hour ( vs. our regular Full Service Conversion rate of $60.00 an hour) IF Steve helps. If our customer can work on his own, no charge, and IF he can be doing something while STEVE is doing something then two jobs get done for the one fee of Steve’s time.
Day 1 : First… out comes the GAS Motor.:
DAY 2: They then removed the Exhaust System and Gas tank… Cut out the Trunk area and started to make Battery Boxes. Mike decided on NO AC. We could have kept it, but that would take a little of the Battery energy.
Michael has decided on GOLF CART BATTERIES for this conversion. 6V Golf Cart Batteries are economical, but give good service, good Amps and good performance. Steve Started the Battery Racks today while Mike worked on the AC and cleaning up the front engine compartment.
DAY 3. Starting on Adaper Plate:
This is the Plate for the Motor. We will grind this hole out in the center to exactly 4″. Which is the size of the “lip” on the Motor.
We took the Clutch Disc, removed the revits and the clutch pads until all that was left were the spring holders and Spline Hub. We cut the Spring Holders off and machined the hub to be the same diameter.
Here is the Lovjoy Hub, boared out to fit the Spline Clutch Disc Hub.
This is the HUB pressed in to the Lovjoy Coupler. We put a large bolt through this and tighten it down
We are using a Lovjoy Hub, size L110.
Michael was called home……..soooo Stay tuned for his next visit to the Green Shed to complete his EV.
HEEEEEE”S BACK !!!! – March 2012
Steve and Mike (PAMPAW to his grandchildren) got the Motor IN the Honda Now Know as the MPR CAR, New CV Joints, and a FIRST ride… all in 2 days time !!
It was a very tight fit for the WarP 9 Motor, but there was just enough room, to be able to hang the Power Steering pump from the Front of the motor and power it from the Tail Shaft.
Never too Young !!
Steve gave Meaghan plenty to do on her own. She bolted and un-bolted most of the bolts and even took a stab at Welding !
