Motor Shroud for Blower4551 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.

Blower to cool the motors3925 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.

Zilla Coolant Pump2635 viewsI bought a submersible pump for the Z2K cooling. I'm going to use the existing coolant reservoir from the truck as the tank.

Motor Cooling blower2395 viewsThis is the ductwork box I had to build so I can run a hose to each motor.
The box is built out of 3/16" ABS. The blue plate is a metal mounting plate so I can bolt the assembly to the frame.
