1.   Reply to MK4 Marcos - Ev Conversion Posted by: Garry Scott

Hi Graham
Sorry for the late response, i dont get onto the forum near as much as I should do!

Initially it looks as though i willconvert my miniscamp as its currently road legal and will make a good mule for testing all the parts out.
There is actually another marcos owner doing the same conversion as me, im not sure if hes on here but im presuming so. Hes much more advanced than I am as he has his conversion running, although its installed into a standard mini saloon  for now.

There is definitely an opportunity for a reasonable cost conversion, the swind-e mini conversion costs around 37k all in and there are options for arounf 20k (euro) from ian-motion and electricmini.nl

Im hoping I cando my conversion  for around 5k or so, but i have put a lot of time into the design and fabrication work, I will if the conversion works out be selling brackets and possibly modified subframes which will allow people to buy all the other bits and fit them.

For battery location, it will be mainly in the engine bay, and possibly where the fuel tank is, or perhaps inside where the spare wheel would go?

I need to get the marcos out of the unit and give it a good lookover, but Im struggling for time at the mo

Will try and get some more photos up soon and show you where i am with it.

Bent,
Sorry for the delayed reply, but I'll definitely need a throttle cable like this.  I've started fitting the kit and the existing cable is mounted solidly vertically - no way I'd get the bonnet fitted.
So this type of cable will be required.  I'll use what I've got to get the car running for now and once there will have a cable made up.
I assume these will have a PTFE liner to prevent the cable from sticking.

ETA - I'm also a little worried as the air filter is hard up against the bulkhead of the car.  Not sure what I can do about that (other than remove the air filter and fit a sock on the trumpet.  And I'm a little confused over what breather pipes connect where on the new system.  I'll try and compare the original inlet manifold to the new one I guess.

A genuine Cox GTM of 1967 - 1 of the 55 early cars built with all the correct features.
Work on this car commenced about 30 years ago with the chassis and body being restored. But then the project was abandoned and dry stored since 1993.
It's a complete project with most of the suspension there, but no engine. Gear linkage mechanism present though. Also a brand new laminated windscreen and Perspex rear screen still in wrapper, replicated bonnet badge, lovely Cosmic Mk2 wheels and a map full of articles.
No paperwork whatsoever though.
Price 2,950 GBP

Hi Bent, I'm not quite following your reply.  Are you saying you just bent the throttle cable under the bonnet?  What are you referring to with the MC?

Jim - I hadn't seen one of those brackets before.  Good to know an alternative solution could be out there.  I'm going to try and get things running first with the bonnet removed.  I might look to see if I can change the angle of the SC cable bracket slightly, but if Bent has managed to get this set up running just by bending the throttle cable under the bonnet, I might be looking for a problem that isn't there.

Garry, this looks to be a really interesting project.  Where do you propose to place the batteries - where the fuel tank is currently, across the rear of the ca?
There a video on youtube by Jonny Smith, where he tests a classic mini that has been converted to electric by a commercial company, but I think if there's a solution that can be used/adapted more widely then there could be a future for kitcars in general, not just our MM's.
