9" Series DC Motor. Rebuilt by Jim Husted. It is in excellent condition. It was put into a 70's Model BMW 2002. The motor comes with the adapter for this motor. I believe it to be a GE motor but can't be 100% sure but it originally came out of a forklift. This 9" motor is shorter than a Warp9 motor and has the cooling fan built in. It has the drive shaft out the drive end only. It would be a great fit for any of the VW vehicles or even a BMW. Easily fit into tighter spaces yet still give plenty of power. If you want the motor and need it shipped you need to make the arrangements to have it picked up. I will put it on a pallet and strap it down for shipping and will wrap it in shrink-wrap.

The main section that the field windings mount is 8 3/4 inches long. Just the field winding center section.

Motor is 9" diameter on the tail end and 10" at the flange Drive End. From flange face to end of motor is 15".

Best reasonable offer.

That depends upon the vehicle, voltage and amperage used. It is a DC motor and was in a 75 BMW 2002 so it has plenty for a vehicle that size. Its not a race motor and DC motors are limited in max rpm so keeping it in the 5000 rpm range is pretty much a normal thing to do. Feed it good voltage and high amperage and it will belt out some good torque. What are you building, what would your voltage be and what kind of amperage would you expect to feed it? It continuous would be different than peak. Dumping in 350 volts at 2000 amps would be different than running the vehicle at 65 mph on the freeway.
