Coupler almost off2483 viewsThis is the coupler when it's just about cut off.
We would cut down to the keyway in the coupler, then we could pry it open just enough to tap it off the shaft.

Front Battery Box plywood3251 viewsThis is the box that sits in the Engine compartment. It will hold 6 GC batteries.

PFC mount3617 viewsThis shows how the PFC 50 charger is mounted under the hood.
It's at an angle so that I can easily reach the controls.
The 2 meters in the wiring station are a 50A AC Ammeter, and a 300V AC Voltmeter. Useful for adjusting the charger for whatever I happen to be plugged in to.
