I dug around in my files and found some pictures of part of the conversion.  We started with a "basket CASE" 446. No motor or pump and the rear end was locked up. After Trail rebuilt the rear end it was a matter of deciding where to put the 24 volt motor/pump. We thought about hiding it under the seat. But KISS took over and we put where it was easiest to do the plumbing  and electrical. The motor is a little loud but it functions.  We need to shake it down some more and change a few things. Replaced the suction hose

and made a pressure hose. Lots of little things to do from here but we got her running!

Our Trial run of a case 446 converted to Electric.


Looks great, how much run time do you get? Do you put full voltage to the motor all the time? Just curious looks similar to my build.

I get about 2 hours run time. I put a meter on it telling me when the batteries are getting low. It runs the motor and pump full speed all the time. The original valve body controls the flow of oil to the rear thus controlling the speed.

That's exactly how I planned on how to do build mine. Couple of questions that would really help me out. What size is your motor? What size are your batteries? What are you using to charge them?

it uses two 12 volt batteries and a 24 volt motor and pump off a lift for a pallet truck. I am charging each one separate right now but plan on putting a 24 volt charger where the gas tank use to be under the seat when I can find the right size one.

 

CRFarnsworth (Rat Fink picture) has a better pic of the motor. :thumbs:

You could also get 2 - 12volt automatic chargers and mount them. There more popular, probably cheaper and some are compact in size.
