    Project Update!

    Good news we have found the 1st motor that we are purchasing it for testing!

    We have found two controller suspects that both look promising!

    The program is just stated to be written that will run the controller and all of the sensors required.

    We are looking for someone with experience with harden gears and Bendix drives!!!!!

    This would help speed things up however we can hack it too if required with Marc's help!

    John my day today is SUPER busy and will continue to be so until well into the evening hours or I would look around today.
    I will TRY to do some digging around over the weekend.
    If you want to research a bit here are some starting points.

    This may be a good starting point for off the shelf products

    It has been quite a few years but these guys used to be rather good with custom stuff

    Back in the day the Browning Power Transmission catalog used to be a good reference for the basic engineering information.

    And then there is always the bible of mechanical engineering ( Machinery's Handbook )

    You should think Tommy Milton, and when you think of Bendix drives. :-) I have NEW drives manufactured for me, I buy some disassembled as I have to modify them for one application. I would be happy to help, consult or provide Bendix drives. http://calumetair.com

    Guys. Tom has the simplest most reliable bendix for our use. I'd highly recommend you guys use it.

    Of course what was I thinking!!!

    Tommy how much for two for testing?

    U-ROCK!!!

    Once this is done we could use your help making a retrofit for Wunderlich????

    You could buy the parts at volume discount prices through PRA and re-sell them, that is what I'd do.
