It's my gut feeling that even though the EVW's are based on an automotive fan motor.  I think EV had them specially wound for thier application.  What leads me to believe this is the vestigial center connection not wired to anything and the fact that the EV-X motor, though larger, is not as powerful as the EVW.
Just a feeling.

What I have found is the EV warrior was in fact a Ford cooling fan motor for industrial trucks or large trucks, but they may also have been used in cars. It is for this reason that I believe there are more motors out there in the auto parts chains or possibly in salvage yards waiting to be discovered. I am still working this angle and checking with salvage yards also. There are companies who re-manufacuture motors and if enough cores were found  might be able to get a bunch re-maned for the members to buy for there tanks prodjects. It just depends if cores can be found.  Curt M41 Walker Bulldog.
