Good to see progress again. Looking forward to hear about the trans controller.

yes I am hoping the trans controller works well. I need to sit down and read the instructions so I can tune it, but it is supposed to have a diesel tune it already.

After reading this through I believe it still would have worked. If you tapped put the batteries, alternator and starter on the 12V side and the rest of the system on the 24V side you would have been fine. Good to see it get completed though.

We ended up center tapping the batteries to get 12v and ran that thru a 24v solenoid to create a 12v crank circuit for the starter. Then used a 24v-12v converter to run the trans computer.

That intake/exhaust turned out very clean. That rolled heat shield by the wiring is a nice touch.

Ill have to get some video, yea I drove it last week then took it back apart to add some heat shields and stuff. Works good but can't say I'm real impressed with the power . But I have never drive one before and nothing to compare it too. I really want to do gov spring on it doesn't have enough usable rpm.



Time and material for billing and there was a lot of both on this project
