The oil pan 4 electric vehicle tow and charge service gets one step closer to reality.
With the brushes replaced and slip rings shined up its ready to go it puts out 240v at 60hz.
Ok so I am not really building a tow and charge trailer, but the trailer I am buildingis 18 feet long, over 8 feet wide, legally hold 5000lb and I can put what ever I want on it, generator, electric vehicle, or welding machines and 20 foot lengths of steel, torch cart.
The generator is going to be a remote power source for air compressor, plasma cutter, and varrious welding machines, or EV if needed.
When I am done with it the generator will have NEMA receptacles L14-30, L14-20, 10-50, 5-20 and possibly an L5-30. (The 10-50 is a 50 amp receptacle on a 30 amp breaker)
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
2011 leaf SL, white, portable 240v CHAdeMO, trailer hitch, new batt as of 2014.
