Converting a Military Humvee from diesel to electric
« on: September 27, 2021, 03:06:57 PM »
I watch this guys YouTube channel because he has alot of good content on projects he works on.  His latest project is to convert a surplus Military Humvee from it's original diesel powered engine to an electric powered vehicle using an electric motor off a tug used at the airport to tow large airliners.

He is releasing videos as the project progresses:
