Coupler almost off2479 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.
Putting them together2642 viewsBoth motors together! Bolted to the motor-motor mount.
Flywheel adapter - oops, hole too big1679 viewsWe didn't read the caliper quite correctly, and accidentally bored the mounting hole for the pilot bearing a bit too big. (20 thousandths or so)
So we brazed in some metal and had to re-do that hole.
Building Motor Mounting Framework7196 viewsWe decided it was easiest to juts build the motor mounting framework in place. Carefully cut pieces and clamp them in place, then tack weld it all together.
Zilla Mounted1996 viewsA closer view of the Z2K mount
2328 viewsShows were the 6 rows and 2 dividers will be.
PFC mount3611 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.
Charge Port Door switch4520 viewsThis shows how I mounted a switch on each of the charge port doors. (used to be gas tank doors!)
This switch will tell the Z2K controller if either of the charge port doors is open, and if so, it won't let the truck "start".
Really helpful to prevent driving off with the cord still plugged in.

Cables into bed5146 viewsThis shows how I mounted and protected the cables that run from the front of the truck into the bed.
All under-truck cables are in some kind of conduit, or have a shield between them and the ground.May 29, 2009
Breaker Boxes3466 viewsThe black box on the left has 3 Airpax 250A DC breakers. These will have a bar bolted to their handles so they all switch together.
The other box has the 2 breakers for the charging system.May 29, 2009
Rear Battery box in truck4933 viewsThis is the rear Battery Box that will hold 42 Golf Cart batteries in the bed of the truck.
(Someday when hitech batteries are reasonably priced, I'll remove this and mount the pack under the bed.)May 29, 2009
