Adventure EV

Front dismantled

by on Nov.09, 2009, under EV Land Rover, ICE, Tear Down

One of the great things about old Land Rovers is that they were meant to be mended in the field with a simple toolkit;  a couple of screwdrivers, a couple of wrenches.  It means that I can dismantle it pretty quickly.

It’s time to undergo Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) removal… and all the items that relate to it.  That includes things like the fuel tanks, radiator, exhaust system, and dual heater system.  Removing the front clip and wings gives me great access to the engine bay.  And, it only took about an hour and a half.  Witness…

Now if I could move like that all the time, I’d be done with this whole conversion by tomorrow. As it stands, I just hope to have all the ICE stuff out of the vehicle by the end of tomorrow.
I was able to weigh my first cast-off, the radiator and fan… 25lbs, empty.

    Very slick, Slick. Both videos are great. Gas at .99 cents per gallon? I don’t know. You should have bought more!

    yeah, nice vids…i sense a strong influence from Top Gear 😉 looks great though! keep it up man! I bet it was hard to drive it around with the old ICE still in. God thing you ordered all the parts for the conversion before you drove it again!
