I want to convert an old B&D lawnmower motor to DC. Answered
I'm going to build a Quadcycle from PVC pipe. The plans are from American Speedster in Tallahassee, FL The drive mechanism is from an old bicycle. While researching my accessory options, I read about an electric conversion, built from an old B&d lawn mower? I don't have a cord long enough to continue the use of this motor in it's AC configuration. ;=]
Therefore, my quandary. What is the procedure and what parts will I need to convert this motor to DC?
Also, I would like to know the difference in the wiring between different voltage ratings.
I.E. What determines whether the load drawn is 12 volts or 36 volts.
Thank you a bunch! Doug Olinger, Glennville, GA
P.S. I have really enjoyed the information contained in the Instructables on this site. It is a great site, and has great information. I may try to create an instructable on this Quad. It could be fun.
