If you will look at my responses to questions you will see I attemped to answer most of the questions posed to me. Dug through different size bins to find the smallest screw that would fit. Both push full speed ahead at all times. Posted pics of 'bus bars'. I like the leds, due to low power consumption. Do you still have your stock gear or do you not want to reuse it? It was kept outdoors for many months and some of wires near the motors look like they are in poor shape. The plastic ones strip if the little metal bracket that is on the shaft is not used.
A have also seen Ciruit breakers stick open or stick closed. Is that metal transfer on the contacts? Melting and softening and weaking of the wires and potential fire if the wires are not replaced with a thicker guage of wire. I have no negative intentions or motivations. It was already lifted so I had room. I am looking for Service manual, Wiring diagram,battery voltages,parts list, etc for any of the Mattel Power Wheels battery Powered Ride On Jeeps, trucks, etc. Thats why I got into the mods, really, aside from costly factory batteries.
Your local authorized Power Wheel service center will have them, probably cheaper than anywhere on the net. Speed is great, but what's next? Being patient and getting deals and used and extra parts are a plus in keeping the costs down. Cruising around at the vehicles top speed on smooth, level ground the motors may only draw 5 amps total. No matter how hard the child pushes on the pedal it won't make contact until it cools and bends back. Rather than running a relay to togel between batteries I opted to convert the the jeep into a 3 speed, 4 if you count reverse.
In driving in them on grass with stock motors and gear boxes. They are heavier and actually have more negative offset than the factory wheels. The Power wheels eliminator did not come with one. Once I get some time, and caught up on my current projects. Converting it to 12 volts will increase it's max speed to about 7 mph, which is noticiably faster than a regular 12 volt Power Wheel.
I don't blame any of you. Ideally I would like to supply the motors with whatever load they can handle. Is your plan to grind the head off the screw once done? First, thanks for all the info, it really is greatly appreciated. I mention this if you decide to run a Battery that is rated more than 12 amps per hour. Posted on Tuesday, March 28, 2006 - 12:40 am: How much grease did you use or was there enough inside to move around and re-use onto the gears? Posted on Sunday, March 05, 2006 - 08:12 pm: Ok, even if a set screw is needed, there really is no need to drill the motor shaft. The plastic wholes they go in, sometimes get rounded out or make a bigger whole. Sure sporty's mods might not be perfect, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess yours aren't either.
My screws are true set-screws so they dont have a head. Got a go kart and it was just to much for the kids. A circuit breaker is by definition a resettable device. You do not have to help anyone but yourself. Would it be possible to remove the wires from bus bar one by one and attach them that way??? And so what if Chris uses Railserve.
I also learned quickly what works for us and what don't. I tried to wire in an extra 6v battery to take it to 18v total. Hopefully we can find some of the 650 motorr 12 volts. What about the Little Tikes battery operated vehicles? Also I had to clamp the shaft to be drilled or it would move on me. I'd love to get more traction. Yet, about every post he makes he plugs his cd.
I needed some information as well as a centralized dedicated place the discuss powerwheels. Before I went tearing into this car I wanted to see if anyone knew what it was beforehand. Why buy a cd to learn how to cut a couple of wires to replace a battery. If they are connected, go ahead and take the two wires from the good motor and put them on the motor not working. That is the idea behind this forum. It was already lifted so I had room. One thing I did find was I had to make sure that the surface was free of oil and grease and a light sanding with a small piece of 400 grit sand paper to ensure the surface held the epoxy well.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Sorry to see Chris go; he's the only one who answer my question so long ago. Most of us will never meet but we still end up have a friendship with each other. Check out the newest video. Steve, as far as your battery is concerned, I've never seen that one, but the AmpHour rating seems like it would work well.
There is a few things to think about. Plenty fast as well as reliable. You can check that out and see if it pertains to your ideas or even put your ideas in there as well. I think you have two options here, aside from the lighter fluid! Pretend seat belts help keep kids in the vehicle during their on- and off-road excursions. He really needs the money. Wow a 6-32 screw seems large to me. I figured if I did the straight forward approch, she would figure out that if she hit the nitro switch and not use the gas, She could do some pretty wicked burn outs and just tweek the gear boxes back to the dark ages.
