Greetings,
Just got my 86 vw vanagon Syncro converted to a hyper9. It took about six months for me to figure this out and get it around the block under its own power. I oddly did not need to ask questions on this forum to get this conversion up and running, but I do have a few questions now. So I thought I would introduce my project.

I have no idea yet. I have an old bunch of Calb cells a friend gave me. I assume there pretty degraded at point. I have one bad cell I’m hoping to replace tomorrow so I can really step on pedal. I’ll keep you posted.

I’ve had this lingering in the back of my mind for years now, converting my 2wd westy.
I notice your power steering pump is still there.. what are your plans for power steering? I just assumed I’d replace it with an electric actuated unit.
Where are the batteries?

I’m going to mount a 12v motor to the power steering pump and have it run a relay from a switch on dash. Turning it on at lower speeds when needed. My battery is on the floor of the van in an aluminum box. Will mount between frame rails under van later. I have a propex for heater. “Fog-ex” for defrost.
