If you mean whether I removed the second of the 3 legs of the E to
make a C shape core, no - I had not thought of that. That would indeed
open up a much bigger hole for winding than that I used.
I believe that my motor cabling is , seeing that I could barely fit

Yes, you need to remove the magnetic shunts. These are rectangular blocks of
laminations tack-welded into the space between the primary and secondary.
This restores the core to a normal E-I laminated stack.

That's generally considered an awkward work-around for a problem

Regen is much more to me than just regaining some range. It is a safety item
that I would use for dynamic braking. Since my physical size is large, I
physically fit better in a larger heavier vehicle (why I chose to have a
S-10 Blazer converted). So, regen would be quite useful to me in a heavier

I do have a brake vacuum pump with a sizeable reservoir (holding vacuum)
and my truck can stop pretty well, though I often use the brakes so
and so gentle that from time to time I have to force myself to make a
harder stop, just to keep the brakes from getting stuck.

I find it interesting that many of the Gotta have Regen! notes are from
people that basically admit they screwed up the brake system on their DC
vehicles, and want Regen so they have an alternate system.
Doesn't matter what kind of power system you have. Your Brake system MUST work!

It sounds like you might not have many miles on your conversion?

I have almost 30k miles on my conversion. I started with a vacuum pump and a
big reservoir. When I added insulation to my batteries, I didn't have room for
the reservoir, so I tried leaving it out. The car still drives (and stops)
fine. I haven't had any problems with the vacuum pump. I

I think the hoses are acting as a reservoir.
That's the way Solectria did it. They wound several feet of vacuum hose
round the pump before routing the end to the brake booster. It worked fine.
It was almost elegant in its simplicity.
