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!!!

Electric Motor connected to clutch
Electric Motor connected to the clutch of a Ford Probe that I'm converting to Electric EV. I took the crank shaft and cut off the hub end that connects to the flywheel, and welded it to the splined hub of the electric motor. I also measured and came up with 2.5" adapter plate needed for proper spacing.





Electric Starion - Electric Car Conversion - Part 6
After successfully testing the Starion drivability of the electric car conversion so far, 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...
