Electric Car's Wheels are Spinning!!!!

I decided to test my Electric Motor to see if it would spin the wheels of the car once I had it all together. I made a bus bar out of copper tubing and then drilled holes in it and bolted it on. Next I attached my jumper battery to the correct terminals on the engine and put the car in 2nd gear. To my surprise.....the wheels went in the right direction!!! Yeah!!!

Fiero electric motor transaxle first test
This is a major milestone in my 1986 Pontiac Fiero electric car conversion project. After numerous delays getting the correct adapting hardware for the new motor to the old transaxle, we finally mounted the clutch and motor assembly onto the transaxle and frame of the car. With everything in place, I applied a regular 12 car battery to the motor and amazingly, it ran without a hitch! See my website (www.roboticmayhem.com) for more information on this project.





Electric Starion - Electric Car Conversion - Part 6
After successfully testing the drivability, it's back to the workshop to get stuff removed to paint the battery racks and sort the best place for the charger and finally add the tacho sender to the gearbox adaptor plate. The fuel port assembly is done now also; I cleaned up the inner rubber mount and gasket-sealed the hole with a rubber bung where the original fuel inlet was, and Nathan cut out the new hole for the power through to a new fascia plate where the 20A connector will be mounted. A shut-off switch is added which is essential when 'filling up'; some folks use micro switches like the ones in arcade machines in their EV fuel ports but we're using a brake switch which will be more durable and it's long thread allows us to fine-adjust the profile of the switch so that it triggers properly when the fuel door is opened/closed. An annoying short had to be traced under the dash (oops, I forgot to ground a 5W resistor), and you'll meet our little helpers at the end of the video. Cuuuute...

Electric Starion - Electric Car Conversion - Part 2
It's been a long wait, but the Thundersky lithium 144v 160Ah batteries finally arrived! Now we have to set about determining the best configuration for the batteries in the engine bay and rear tank using info from convertyourgasguzzler.com. A bit annoying the BMS modules haven't arrived yet as a confirmation measurement of the height of these would help in determining the battery rack height dimension. We could arrange the engine bay battery racks as a typical square-finish configuration, or perhaps angled around the motor for a cool effect, and then as Nathan suggests place plastic clear Perspex sheets over the top for a neat finish, and tinted perspex surrounding the Curtis terminals too perhaps - we want a neat engine bay! Nathan mentioned someone who had Thunderskies mounted on their edges (sides) but the efficiency was greatly deteriorated and batteries leaked! I don't know if those were the LiCoO2 (we're using LiFePO4), either way we'll install close to vertical anyway and a crude animation is included to show possible mounting. Another 'fun' part in this video was removing the dash so we could access the ventilation system box and put in the heater core (I know, could have gone with a water micro boiler unit but budget is getting tight; maybe later); biggish job but not too hard for two people working on it (Stephanie did it once, alone, and it was a pig of a job she said). I'll help Nathan get it back together later as he moves on to the charging setup and we'll the need the BMS master unit as well (which also hasn't arrived yet). The Curtis will have a water cooling block underneath where all the FETs are positioned inside (and block secured tight with thermal compound between surfaces) and maybe a fan box on top, if there is room, but the water cooler alone should help keep the thing under 75 degrees C (a Zilla would be better; can't get our hands on one for now and they're expensive). The very crude animation of possible engine bay layout will probably change as we decide the best location for stuff (pwr steer/air con drive components and compressor, pump motor, hoses etc) and final battery count front and back. The reservoir for water block coolant may stay in its original place if the hose length is not too long to be impractical. Slowly but surely we are getting somewhere now. Sorry about the shaky camera, some of us have been sick with flu. Sorry about the boobies too, but hot fiddling with cars ;-)

150,000 uF Capacitor Bank for Electric Car
Here is a 150,000 uF Capacitor Bank that I am building for my EV. This should help take out the high amp spikes from the batteries and increase the performance a little bit and should make the batteries last a little longer. Will have a follow up video of the install and testing.

Small Budget Honda Accord Electric Conversion
http://www.useafuel.com - This video shows the DIY simple conversion of a 1990 Honda Accord from gas to electric. It's pretty simple. Remove the gas motor, install new electric forklift motor, batteries, and motor controller. After that, charge from any outlet and enjoy.





Kaylor Kit Electric Motor Demo
This is a video of our demo flick for our Kaylor Electric Conversion Kit for the older VW platform. This is an older style Starter/Generator Military Shunt DC motor with a custom made adaptor plate and flywheel from Kaylor Energy Systems. These are no longer being made but can still be found. We are testing a modern PWM electronic controller specifically designed to run these special motor. They are able to do regen too. This motor can push a stock steel bodied VW Ghia to 62 mph with 12 6 volt batteries. It is a 72 volt system. It works perfect. Perfect for a nice fun all electric buggy. Or Bug or Ghia.
