    Controller with no wire labels

    Hi.

    I've been toying with the idea of converting my old Claude Butler to an e bike for a while now, but the cost of kits has really kind of put me off.

    I was offered a kit for pennies from a friend recently. He'd had it a while but never found the time to put it on. So I thought it might be a fun project.

    I've just got it on the bench, to try and work out what connects to what, and I'm not so sure fun is the right word. In fact most of the words I'd use to describe it have four letters...

    I'm an aerospace engineer by trade, so I understand complex wiring systems, and I'm sure I could work out what connects where eventually, but I'm hoping people here can point me in the right direction.

    Some of the connectors match. I know it's a big leap but I'm going to assume for now that they are terminated correctly.

    But that leaves a fair few wires dangling in the breeze with no real indication of what they're for.

    If I post a picture or two of the items I have, I wonder if people might be able to give me some guidance?

    I'm kind of expecting to have to make up my own loom with decent wire at some point, but hoping to get it up and running mostly with what's already there initially.

    So anyway. Any help from people who've already put similar together would be incredibly gratefully received.

    Yes. I know I could have spent a load of money and bought a much simpler kit, but that's not the point. This is a project that I want the satisftof getting working. All suggestions to bin it and start again will be roundly ignored.

            Good find stts. Thanks. Now I just need to work out what goes where on the wiring loom.
