also a great reason to have one!
Does anyone know which bolts I can undo to take a look inside the motor?

I'm new to the EVDL and loving the depth of conversations everyone has,
wonderfully educational for a beginner like me.
I'm hopefully just about to start my first conversion... was going to use
Li-Ion batteries but have been reading this and wondering what all the fuss
is about NiCd.
Classical music or jazz would be nice!

Firstly, does anyone get this? Tried replying to a couple of conversations
and it didn't work.

A rubber sleeve with some sort of oneway binding that allows the cable to be
inserted easily but stops it falling off unless tugged.
Have searched online but only found domestic small cabling solutions.

One of the bearings on my AC-31 has started going, causing a loud whining
noise and loss of power in the middle of the RPMs.
Does anyone have experience repairing one of these?
And I've damaged the rotary encoder while poking around in anger and
frustration... never a good way to work
Many thanks - that's great info.
The guys at HPEVS have been very helpful too, gave me the codes for the
bearings, 6206 and 6207 bearings apparently.

Would you share what you're doing to build a BMS, what you've learnt etc?
I'm interested in doing something similar, eventually...

I blew my BMS today. Feels like an EV rite of passage.
It was a proprietary system from an older EV conversion by a now defunct UK
company so I have no way of discovering what's going on inside, I have been
unable to find any documentation.
My system is 84V from 25 Thundersky 160Ah
I'm looking for a BMS at the moment and have been finding lots of dead webpages
and defunct companies.
Anyone able to suggest a good BMS for 25S Lipo other than Orion?

The pack is made up of 25 Thundersky 160Ah batteries.
It's getting worse too. Now I'm getting the charger turning off

Firstly thanks for all your info and chat about the Curtis 1238 SOC and the
subsequent discussion about the measuring of power in a pack.
I managed to get the 1314 software going and find out that the OEM of my
Curtis (a defunct UK company called the Electric Car Company) set the BDI

Quick question haven't had a reply from Curtis tech support.
I have a second hand Curtis 1238-6501. I can't figure out how to reset the
State of Charge. It's stuck at 30% no matter the voltage of the pack!
Does anyone know if there is a standard input to reset it or was it
Thanks for the email. Yeah I've been knocking on Curtis' door trying to get
WinVCL and they're not particularly interested... probably doesn't help
that it's Curtis UK.
Is it possible to re-flash the controller without their software?
All the best,

Good info Steve! I use the 404 sometimes in that fashion.
