Pack Voltage System Schematic5715 viewsThis is the schematic for the Hi Voltage DC System.
It includes everything that connects to the pack.
I've left out a few of the hairball connections (like tach and tach sensor) that don't connect to anything else.
(Done with EagleCAD)

Motor Shroud for Blower5178 viewsThis is the shroud I wrap around each motor (Brush end) to connect the ductwork from the blower.
It's made out of 4" wide aluminum flashing. Just cut with a carpet knife, and flex the cuts apart.

Motor wiring, Series4958 viewsAfter discussing things with several people, I decided to wire the motors in series.
This is because I have a fairly hi voltage page, and should be able to get enough RPM's even with the motors in series.
Also gives much better torque.

Decals on back4845 viewsI finally got the Decals on the truck.
Hopefully I'll get some good pictures of the ones on the sides as well.

Blower to cool the motors4534 viewsThis is a 3 speed 12V blower I got from Surplus center.
I plan on having it come on in low speed whenever I turn the truck on, and it will switch to hi-speed if any of the motor thermostats trigger.

Central Wiring area3981 viewsThis is where most of the control wiring will be.
It's not done yet in this photo.
The meters are the AC Amps and Volts for the PFV-50 input.

Control Wring (part 2)3920 viewsThis is what's under the top board of the control wiring. This is where most of the big parts are located.
PFC-50 plugs, DC-DC converters, fuses for pack voltage accessories, etc...

Mechanical link between Breakers3582 viewsThis shows how I made it so that only 1 of the 2 power inlet breakers can be ON at a time.
Both can be off, but only 1 can be ON.

Control Wiring3523 viewsThis is the main control wiring for the EV conversion. It has the Z2K Hairball, and all the various relays, meters, fuses, etc..
The 2 meters are AC Amps and Volts for the PFC-50 charger.
