This blog documents the restoration, and conversion, of a 1965 Humber (Singer) Vogue to a fully electric vehicle. The Vogue will be powered by an 11kW(modified), 3 phase industrial AC motor, controlled by an industry standard Variable Speed Drive (VSD) or Inverter. To be able to produce the 400 volts phase to phase the VSD will need about 600 VDC of batteries. A big thanks to the contributors on the AEVA forum:

Motor End-cap Reversal

Just for the record, a few weeks ago I removed both end caps and the rotor and tried reversing them. The end furthest from the terminal box did not fit on the other end of the motor (drive end) because the end cap would not go over the wires. As per advice from an AEVA member, I left the drive-end end cap bearing in place.

The drive-end end cap appears to have been machined out to fit over the bulky section of the stator wiring where the 6 motor wires are terminated. This end didn't fit!

 I elaborate on the AEVA forum here.
