Evlite on the way, so once they are in I can get them fed and watered properly. It was surprising how relatively easily most of the bolts came out. Only one of the Tork bolts was seriously tight. Still when I get my set out of my recipient van they will probably be a real pain. Sods law will out. Al...

Well I finally have some newer batteries. A full set of 2002/03 all measuring around 6.3v after a very limited charge, from virtually flat. In addition I have one complete 6 pack of 2001 all partially charged at over 6v and few cells that have got over 6.6v when put into my top engine bay set and ch...

Its interesting seeing the comments on the Hybrids. At work we have both Honda and Toyota. many of us consider the Honda to ba a dangerous vehicle. Unlike the Toyota, the Honda is basically a petrol car and an under powered one at that, it relies on the motor system to supplement its serious lack of...

Yup its a definite non runner. But I hope that I can get at least a few usable batteries from it, and a few spares. I might actually be getting more than one. In which case they will be stripped and usable parts stored with a view to long term building an electric Multispace, with side doors not jus...

Roll up roll up get your Blingo bits here!!!! (Well soon)

I have agreed to buy a Blingo that is a breaker. Not sure of all the problems, but when it arrives in early/ mid Jan I will need to strip it and dispose of it quickly. So if anyone has need of parts, let me know what you need, including normal Blingo body bits. When I get it I will then check the bi...

The corrosion was odd, I noticed it before it went to Evan, it looked like the sort of corrosion you get on copper pipe when you leave the flux on. It also had started on the 40way cable as well. We have checked the seal for the ECU to the main casting and it looks ok. I have to assume this was prob...

There were a number of problems that Evan found, but the most interesting was that the circuit boards had some corrosion on and this had extended to some of the components. It almost looked like something had dripped along the board. Evan had a few probs with some of the components but sorted it. In...

Lion looks interesting, Evan is fairly confident he could modify the charger to run them. Long term maybe you are right, but short term I would like to at least prove to myself that the EV route is where I want to be going. So short term I guess I will try and get the best SAFT based battery set I c...

The berlingo is a 2000 (w) with 10k on the clock, bought of ebay with a subsequently totally duff controller. Evan Tuer has been great at sorting that out. A very talented chap. Now its up and running and charging its knackered batteries are now the problem. It been fed and watered but it wont get b...
