C5 Meetings & Events / Driffield Steam and Vintage Rally 2016 (update)
« Last post by C5 Josh Langstaff on 13, April, 2016 - 16:34:38 »
Hi everyone just a quick update on the organisation of the steam and vintage rally at Driffield this year.
I am applying to go in this year and i hope you do too. i know there wont be much interest for this as it is in East Yorkshire and i know that the majority of people in the C5 community is down south but if youu are willing to go or if your in the East Yorkshire area then let me know and we could try and sort something out where we could get some of us to all go together. all application forms must be in for may the 19th and you MUST have public liability insurance. I hope you can make it to the event with your C5 and if not i still hope you can visit as the event is absolutely brilliant. finally for those who are wondering the event is on 2 days (13th and 14th August) and camping/ caravaning  passes are available. reply to this post if you wish to know more details.  Thanks a lot -Josh.

Hi,

Im sorry but there are a few points that are not clear,
Quote
The bad news; before many minutes, on each run the power either blew the in- line fuse I had fitted, or actually melted the battery connectors.

I assume the fuse is fitted in the 24v line.

1) What amperage is the fuse?
2) Have you checked the fuse and the battery connectors?
3) Connect the motor directly to the battery, WARNING, make sure the drive wheel is off the ground.

Let me know the results, and we can take it from there.

Av Phun.

C5 Support / 24volt and 12volt accessories
« Last post by Theojw71 on 19, March, 2016 - 21:25:06 »
Hi

I have a C5 that I wanted to convert to 24 volt power, but also run a horn, lights and indicators from (which are 12 volts).

I removed the original wiring loom; bought a 24 volt Lifepo battery; connected it up to the motor; and bought a 24v/12v converter with a view to wiring that in to run the accessories off the 24volt power.

I also bought a handlebar switch control to run lights, indicators and horn from.

The good news; on 24 volt power the C5 ran great.
The bad news; before many minutes, on each run the power either blew the in- line fuse I had fitted, or actually melted the battery connectors.

I feel I am totally out of my depth now and am putting out an honest SOS. Anyone free to help me finish this project and get my C5 running under 24 volt power with working accessories? I have undertaken the brake conversion to manage the extra power (steel wheel at front and updated rear disc brake).

I am Wigan-based so ideally someone local to the North West? (but I will take help and instruction from anyone anywhere - I would say my skills and knowledge in electronics are LIMITED)

Hi you may find that the little pips on the wheel that hold the alloy cog on have been worn down a little just try and use one hole on the plate to see if the pips have a lip on them if so use a file and just file them down so the plate fits over them ...let me know how you get on

Hi Chas

I just wanted to say many thanks for sending the part - thats a beer I owe you !
Is there a knack to getting the circular cap on the wheel which ever way I wiggle the trim I cant seem to get three holes to line up to click it in
Cheers
