Not sure if this will be of interest to anyone here, but as this community has been such a great source of information to me, I wanted to give something back.

I have a bunch of videos and pictures that I took as I disassembled the Leaf drive unit I am using in an EV conversion.

I figured i would share these here in case they are of use to anyone.

The drive unit is a 2nd generation one from 2014 with the components in a single stack and the EM57 motor.

The videos of the inverter are here:

And the PDM/Charger are here:

I'll upload the photos in a follow up post. I hope somone out there finds this stuff as fascinating as I have.

That looks like a good candidate for the "Sticky" topic I'm building...

It will just consist of (labeled) links to helpful topics. Maybe others will chime in on what videos would be especially helpful.
