Hey All

I got a future job coming down the pike and they want
me to obtain the blower motor and the duct for them.
This is going to be for the University of
Missouri-Rolla and it's hard for them to jump through
all the hoops to get the funds so they want me to
compile a complete motor / cooling motor package.

On a fun note (maybe not for the AC guys, who might
consider it outright blasphemy) I've been requested to
trim an Impulse 9 down so they can stuff it into an
EV1 if you can believe that! 8^)
(breath Victor) ;^D LMAO (I know, I'm a pig) 8^)

They'll be running it 144 volts but it has to stay on
campus and can't leave (so I'm told)(be cool if they
could race it on track, but didn't sound that way)
Anyway I'll have to ditch the fan to make it work and
they'll need a blower to keep it cooled. The nice
plus is it's a 10 to 1 ratio which will keep the RPM's
up into a happier zone while it's campus cruising at
slower speeds generally.

Anyway I was hoping you all could point me to a well
built blower motor and what duct works best and again
where to buy. I'll be donating the machining for the
students and I want to set them up right but don't
want to end up eating anything so to speak. I'm just
tickeled I'll have a motor out there pushing an EV1
around.

Maybe I can get Chip or who EVer to let me put that
"Who killed the Electric car" shirt logo airbrushed on
the motor 8^) Be like, See what they did! They sent
us back to the stone age using brushed DC motors 8^o
Yeah I know I'm a DC motor slut, I'll stick my motor
into damn near anything 8^) this one will be kinda
sexy though ;^D Prettier than Mikes Pinto that's for
dang sure, LMAO!

BTW I don't think this stuff up (no hate mail), I just
do what I'm told. Anyway I thought it was cool and if
nothing else I get to help put one back into driving
mode, EVen if it's caged.

Any input would be great, and needed so I can factor
those costs into this, so I can help set these guys up
for their project this year.

BTW, I am no Mother Terisa, I actually sold them the
motor and made a few bucks, my first Netgain sale as a
matter of fact 8^) Sponsoring the rest helps ease
freight costs and keeps their budget allowable. I
also look at it as sales and word of mouth futures.
But mostly cause I'll get to cram my motor into an
EV1, LMAO!

Jim,
If you can use a 12 or 24Vdc blower (various sizes and
flow rates) I can hook you up free of charge. Just
let me know what you have in mind and I'll send it
your way, no charge (and I won't even ask for a free
raffle ticket!)
Rod
P.S. I also have access to AC blowers that run off of
120 or 240Vac, or DC at 168 and 320VDC (and many DC
voltages above and below this range, the AC is
converted to DC anyhow so that's not a problem).
One of the benefits of this list, knowing guys with
free stuff to get your project going!

Hello Jim,

Look at www.overtons.com

These are marine 4 and 3 inch marine all plastic 12 v blowers and they have
the hoses to fit it.

I am using a 12v Dayton blower that you can normally get from a electrical
supply house that is mounted directly to the brush cover which works good
for a solid steel cover. The screen covers as on the Warp motors need a
addition curve steel base that is bolt to the face of the motor with drop
down tabs.

The above inline marine blower motor may be a better installation. These
blowers also work good for bringing in fresh air into a battery box and
exhaust out without any battery fumes damage to this unit.

The price on these marine blowers are less than $10.00, must be made in
China. The Dayton motors run about $80.00 and you must have adapter made to
connect hoses to them.

Roland

Hey Jim (Mother),

Ryan Bohm has a Dayton blower he advertises on his site: http://www.evsource.com/tls_blowers.php

I thought somewhere on his site he had a plenum setup too for the WarP9. Maybe he'll see this post and set me straight.

There is also a smaller waterproof cooling fan: http://www.evsource.com/tls_cooling.php

Mike,
Anchorage, Ak.
