I'm new here to the forum and new to electric vehicles. I am planning to build or do a conversion in the near future and am now in the learning and research phase. I have access to a marine generator, its a 7.5KW slip ring unit built back in the late sixtys. I was thinking of trying to convert it into an elctric motor and was wondering if anyone has any ideas or thoughts on this. The generator is about 13" in diameter and 17" in length. I can aquire this thing for FREE so I am interested in pursuing this if it is feasible. Any feedback appreciated.
