So if you have been thinking about converting your Morris Mini to electric, this proven package can save you a lot of time and money. The early Mini is an ideal small lightweight car for around town car but because of its east west engine it is very difficult to convert it to electric using the existing gearbox. So if you are thinking of converting a classic Mini to electric all the hard work here is done.

Before fitting the ordinal DC motor to the gearbox I had the gearbox completely overhauled. The gearbox has had the cast-iron cylinder block, clutch and flywheel removed. This was done to save weight and yes you still can change gear by pausing when going through neutral. Removing these components was a huge weight saving, a heavy car means a higher battery consumption.
When taking off from a standing start (on the flat) I mainly use third gear and then change into top gear. Second gear is only used on steep hills - reverse gear is still used.

The original motor/gearbox (the one for sale) was modified to take the DC motor by a qualified engineer and I have been using it for a number of years, it has done over 5,600 miles with no problems.
