Flywheel lightening project is complete

Written by admin. Posted in AC Traction Motor

Flywheel lightening project is complete. Don’t need this stinking steel mass to smooth out any non-existant combustion impulses from my electric motor…

The original steel flywheel is 22.5 lbs(10.4kg), the copy on the right is 9.5 lbs (4.3kg). That is 13 lbs lighter.

The goal of 10kg max total assembly weight was just met—got lucky again…

Rear Charge Port

The old fuel tank inlet has been re-commissioned:

BMW made it easy for me here too. This was only a half day task with the rotary table on the milling machine. It presses snugly into the rubber lined opening and is anchored from behind with a mount that is perfectly located for this purpose. Getting a bit repetitive, but Luck happened again…

The final form

The final form of the air conditioning control board enclosure:

The bottom plate of this enclosure (not visible) is thermally connected to this water cooled charger it is mechanically mounted to. This plate was the replacement of the air cooling base in it’s original form, seen in top photo.

Front Charge Port

Written by admin. Posted in Other Details

Fun with ABS:

This comfortable plug handle was fabricated with ABS which I built around a standard 14-50 220V socket/plug.

This is the charger input port that will be used normally while parked in the garage. With this recessed plug design, it is impossible to get your fingers anywhere near metal.
