The terminal is a copper bar - not very thick so you don't need a very long bolt. I think 20mm should do it. I think there is some space behind the bar but make sure that the bolt doesn't hit anything internal.

I ended up buying 12mm length. I measured down and there is something internal that will limit the length of the bolt used. It was less than 3/4Ē.

I bought the entire lithium pack unit from a low mileage new 2018 Nissan Leaf that had been wrecked. The pack was undamaged. I cut it open and took out the modules. The pack voltages are lethal, so first thing to do was to remove bus bars to split it into several lower voltage strings before starting to remove stacks of modules.

Here's the problem: Newer Leaf packs have the modules grouped. Only the 7S ones are really useful for our 48V packs. (need two of them) There are only four of them in a Leaf battery so you only get enough for two carts from one full battery pack. The older leaf battery was 48 modules and you could use either 7 or 14 of them to make a 48V pack.
I got my two 7S modules from Bumblebeebatteries. They had them on Ebay. It's hit or miss but you could contact them and see if they have any.

I got them from a seller called Bumblebee Batteries on eBay. There are 3 or 4 of us on the forum that did the same thing. We cleared them out of their 7S3P packs almost immediately. They donít come up very often so you have to stay vigilant.

I put him down as a saved search so I'll get an email when he post something. Keep posting your progress so you can work all the bugs out for us that are less fortunate

I bought the Nissan pack to use as a battery storage solution for solar power. There are enough modules to build a 40 KW/Hr battery bank. It'll need that much capacity to handle the 370+ Amps of charge current in full sun. My current battery bank is 48V nominal, 4 parallel sets of 8 of the 6V Rolls/Surrette L16-HC in series. I still have 70 of the 315W solar panels in storage. The plan is to add more arrays as required.
