In the next couple days I will be picking up a 96 E10 that has been stripped of its "EV" parts. However, it still has the battery boxes and a good portion of the wiring. It is the nicer LS model and aside from the EV parts having been taken, it is in excellent condition. I figure it is further along than when Solectria started building it.

The idea has been floating around in my head about building one with a single motor and controller, just like the conversion kit sold by Electro-Automotive. I have a nice new spare UMOC445 controller ready to go. I'll need to find the rest of the EV components.

The area I plan to begin the work is installing the single motor. My thought was to install it behind the rear axle and connect directly via a short drive shaft to the rear axle.

I would appreciate any leads on all the other EV parts I will need. They do not necessarily need to be solectria items.

Well, I picked it up and it is in excellent condition except for the fact all of the EV components have been removed. It does have the battery boxes, aftermarket rear axle, tilt bed with all brackets, and heavy duty rear springs.

I am a little torn between using the truck as a whole for the project or using parts to convert an extended cab S10 to EV status. I am leaning toward using the parts for the second option. It is tough because the truck body and interior is in superb condition.

By the way, I did not mention I purchased the truck from Jeff Simpson. He removed all the EV components to convert another car into an EV.

Terry,
I had considered buying one of Jeff's leftovers. He had 2. I was going to use the parts to build an extended cab version because as much as I like my truck, I wish it were an extended cab. I use it for errands as well as back and forth to work and would like to be able to put groceries and such in the cab rather than in the bed. I figured I should get a canvas bed cover instead.

Good luck!

I also purchased the second set of battery boxes from the other truck. After thinking things over, I do not think I need two sets of battery boxes. If someone wants them, they will be available at a fraction of the cost of new. I think they will work on numerous years of S10s. If no one wants them here, I'll post em on the EV classifieds sites and later ebay if need be.

Terry,
I have several Solectria parts I am selling on Ebay. Check my website at the bottom, I list the links to the items.
https://dm3electrics.com/

Presently, I have a Todd DC/DC converter and a Solectria AC compressor with 144v motor.

Does anyone tell me what the voltage of the DC motor powering the air conditioner compressor in a 312 volt E10? I will be listing an Air conditioning controller for it soon.
Good Luck
Thanks,
Jimmy
