    Thanks lugnut, so it works in a similiar manner to a PMAC motor and its KV (RPM/V) constant.

    I will reread your post a couple of times and work out an example and hopefully it will stick

    I was just going off the datasheets. The one for the 1238 doesn't list the -7xxx variant but the 1238R only lists the -7xxx. I just noticed that my version of the 1238 datasheet is from 2005 though so I guess it's there on the later versions.

    Just threw the money down for the motor. Hopefully this source will actually be able to ship me a motor. Said 3-5 days so hopefully will have something next week.

    A few shots of the motor connected to the GM engine. (I don't have access to use this one unfortunately)

    Source two ran into the same issue as my buddy at the dealer. It appears that GM really doesn't want anyone using any of these motors. I'll keep snooping around trying to get my hands on one of these.

    Also tried Continental AG whom is the manufacterur of the motor. They only sell to OEMs.

    Only option will be a crashed vehicle which GM probably snatches up themselves. I have one other source but the chances are very very slim

    My holy grail AC motor journey will continue. Thou I did get a chance to learn a lot about the Curtis controllers and how awesome they are!

    The dealers won't let you order the motors at all? Or they won't let you order them unless you prove that you own the vehicle?

    Either you have to own the vehicle or I think more likely you have to exchange the old part for the new one.
