Howdy folks! After spending part of the day yesterday at a small EV get-together, I'm fired up to work on my 97 Jetta I'm converting with two of my friends. We were poking around at motors, and this one came up:
There are no pics of the motor nameplate; but it appears to be a series wound Nikko motor with a brake on the back.
This auction is for a DC Electric motor # 3BA-17-33660 Good Used! AS-IS
Came off a 4000 lbs unit
DC 36 volt Motor
11" long on case
16" over all length
8 " Case diameter !
With a Spline Shaft !
I thought that size-wise it sounded good, but a caution flag was thrown up by the fact that they're calling it 2.5 kW - I'm sure that's not nearly strong enough; only 3.3 hp?
Could one of you folks take a gander at it and let me know if I should (have) pulled the trigger, or if it really would be as underwhelming as I think it would be?
Thanks in advance!
