Accident

Pictures of when I rolled my Sparrow - at low speed in my own driveway....
(Well, it was downhill, around a curve, on a slanted, wet surface, with a wet grass hump in the middle, and I was going too fast...)

Actual cause of the fire4057 viewsHere is where I found the cause of the fire.
This battery cable was rubbing against the hold down bar, wore through it's insulation and shorted to the bar.
This is a problem because this Sparrow had the Pack Negative tied to the frame/12v ground.
The power flowed through the front famework (which appears to be isolated from the rear), then through the brake line to the back framework, which is tied to pack negative through the controller.

Genset mounting2694 viewsRight side view of the genset rack. Note that it is easy to remove the rack and restore the Sparrow to it's original look. It only takes 6 bolts to remove the rack and put the rear panel back in place.Sep 23, 2007
