I have a 96 E10 with a 276 volt system. I purchased it on ebay a few months ago. It has a defective controller, but moves around on the one good one.

I purchased two new UMOC445TF controllers from Solectria. Unfortuntely the controllers are too tall to fit under the bed. I have decided to install shorter cooling fans and have 1/2 inch machined from the cooling fins. I found a machine shop that would do it, but after 2 months of promises and no delivery, I took them back.

I found another machinist through the local Triumph Club that has taken on the job, but he isnt moving very fast either. I expect to have one machined very soon and then I can work on the shorter fan shroud. I am keeping my fingers crossed I will get it all together by the end of October.

It is white with a gray cloth interior. Body is in near excellent condition and there are only 6100 miles on the odometer. The amp/hour meter does not seem to work, nor does the air conditioning DC to DC converter.

Solectria indicates my truck had a magnacharger port on it and it appears that it once did. However, it has been removed and discarded. I would like to replace it and find a charger for home use.

I intend to make the truck my daily driver for work and errands. My daily commute is only 2 miles and it is rare for me to travel more than 50 miles round trip. THe E10 should work well for me. I have a couple old Triumphs for the longer trips.

If anyone out there has an E10 that they would consider a "parts vehicle" or has just given up on trying to make it road worthy, I would be interested in buying it regardless of its condition or location.

I would also like to acquire some spare parts if anybody out there has some they want to let go.

Welcome, Terry. You know, I've always wondered how those UMOC series controllers fit on an E-10 -- My AMC series Brusa controllers barely fit under my truck bed, and the UMOCs are much taller. I think a couple of other E-10's with UMOCs, maybe they are a different, shorter version.

Hello Terry,
I lived in O'Fallon 20 years ago and hear it is getting big. Check out my pictures that show how I made room under the bed. Are the two Triumphs bikes?

The Triumphs are cars. The dreaded TR7s. Yep O'fallon has really grown in the past 10 years. I'll check out those pictures.

Terry, you should consider converting one over to an electric. Are they mint or in the process of restoration? With all the problems of the TR7 drive system, I think it would almost be a blessing! Wink

Both are undergoing mild restorations of sorts. The drive train isnt that bad. It just requires a fair bit of attention.
