    The car is finally back together but won't start. I jumped the rpm relay and the pump runs. I hooked up another battery and that's not working.

    Got a new battery, Type 78ext from O'Reillys. Now car is turning, with some sputtering but it's not fully cranking up.

    It's been sitting a while so I'm jumping the rpm relay to try to build up some fuel pressure.

    I've been talking about doing an engine swap since before I even bought the car and that day has finally come. Instead of the v8 monster I initially wanted I'm doing an ev conversion. I bought a nissan leaf motor on Saturday for a really good price. It will be running on the stock inverter for now until I become more familiar with the process, then upgrading the inverter for more power.

    I've started draining the tank and removing some components.

    Picked up some lexan and started making replacements for the grilles in the engine cover. It's awful to cut with the scribe but I think it'll look neater.

    What are you doing to replace the loss of heat ventilation ?

    The electric motor and inverter should be running a lot cooler than the prv and both are liquid cooled as far as I know.

    Battery temp will be monitored so I'll have to check for those since they are air cooled. If it's an issue I'll put the grilles back in.
