Ok, install is done, best news so far dash is still on and, it started charging as soon as I plugged in.
All in all pretty simple, just drilled a few holes up front to catch the angle stock clamped around the three pack. You could kit the parts pretty easily if there were others wanting to do this. I used SS band clamps around the three pack to make it monolithic as well as to tie the two rear cells together and to the frame. Used a bit of closed cell foam 1/2” thick between the rear cells and the frame. The one short jumper bar fit perfectly to connect the two packs, I used some foam here to double insulate.
@Inwo should I presume my lowest capacity cell is the one starting out at lowest voltage? They range from 3.107v to 3.204v. I will charge for 4 hours and check. My QuickQ is a 72v charger, how does it get the pack to 92.5v?
@kinghappy, how long do your packs take to charge, and once charged do you leave connected to A/C or unplug?
Is there any other maintenance or tricks I should be aware of using them?
@chris1 going at this having heard you loud and clear, for the traction benefit I am willing to see what happens splitting the pack. I will pay particular attention to each cell on either end of long lead for a bit.
One thing the front location allowed was to move Master switch up front. It was needed to lengthen the positive lead. Never understood hiding it under the seat.
