E12 puller restoration.

E12 puller restoration.

Postby pewamo758 » Tue Feb 05, 2013 2:32 am

All;

Posted some pics of the E12 I am fixing up for tractor pulling. I was having trouble posting to the restoration section, so I put the the pics in the gallery.

Some specs; GE 3.3hp series motor. 24v running at 36v 2800 RPM
Curtis 1205-111 400A PMC 24/36v
Curtis-Albright reversing relay.
200A main contactor. Main power wiring #2 welding cable. Motor wiring #4 welding cable.
Cogbelt drive to standard Elec Trak transmission.
I assembled the machine from two rolling chasis I purchased from Jerry71 and Chad Bush. :D Battery box was fabricated by a local machine shop.....a story in itself. :?

I'll post more pics as things progress. I learned tonight that the throttle assembally won't clear the controller and will have to be machined a bit... :(

Looking forward to the pictures. Where did you find the GE motor?

I found it on an ebay auction a couple of years ago. I used it in my Allis Chalmers 912 ET conversion. I believe it came out of a pallet jack.

WOAH! That is no GE motor! Obviously a golf cart motor of some sort!?! And i thought you were pulling with a stock machine. :quagmire

Hey, this man is getting serious. 8-)

Thanks for posting Tom. A really neat project!

Bet #2 wire was fun. And, bet that motor is heavy too.

Thanks everyone!

Mark: The #2 cable was not to bad to work with. It's very fine strand with plyable insulation. It does take up considerable more space than the stock wiring. :o And yes the motor is way heavy...right around 60 lbs.

Doug: I like It!!!! I will have to find some room on the decal for a couple of SS's :D

Tom,

What is the RPM at 24v on your motor?

What gear do you plan to pull in?

Mark,

The nameplate information on the motor says 2800 RPM. I think this is at 24v. As soon as I get the wiring done and get this thing running, I am going to put a tach on it to check how much faster is turns at 36v. :)

Hoping to pull in L.....but pulling speed will be dependant on current draw. I am fusing the system at 250a.
