Jerry Hyde posted several videos of Live Diesel conversion he constructed. He wrote in 2015:
- I designed the drive system some years ago & did 47 conversions using suitable existing electric models. I do not do this anymore, too much work, burned out! Later I made & sold 27 conversion kits. Burned out even more! I have left over, a few sets of crucial parts & wiring schematic needed to convert. You are welcome to call me if you have any questions & 740-946-6611.
