The projekt is reawakened. First step will be the mother vehicle registration. This is not too easy because I have a Toyota straight-six H engine in the vehicle that was never in this model. And this is Germany here.(
But it is possible. Today I will receive the hopefully best fitting muffler and exhaust.
An EV guy will ask now: " What is a muffler and exhaust???"

Hang Loose

This project seems more to hang, but I am getting more and more things together on my 2CV test bench. I had a very nice phone call with George Hamstra.
Probably in ten days the new WarP11s will be ready. I'll definitive use a WarP11 for the Land Cruiser.

This week I made a battery box for 24 cells out of cardboard. it fits, but things are coming to tight together for a driving car.
As I lay underneath the car thinking about size 12 blogs I fell to sleep...)

Gearbox Mounting

I am struggling a bit with the right way to do the gearbox mounting. Original only the engine and the clutch housing is mounted to the frame. The whole gearbox is free, and there is not realy a good point to mount it. Also the transfer case is aluminium...

Thinking about to lose even more weight

The whole clutch will weight about 42Kg / 93 lbs. And all we need to do with the clutch, is to set the motor "on" or "off".

The flywheel is about 15,1 Kg / 33lbs rotating mass, and thanks to my machinist, it is not running in center.

So I am thinking about to try a LoveJoy...
