    You are correct about the voltage limit. I do not have any detailed info on the speed control. It is rated at 80A and can handle 1 to 6 lipo cells

    OK, in that case I'd add a simple voltage regulator circuit or would chose a transformer suitable for the purpose. You don't need to buy one with 24VAC secondary... 18VAC is pretty common. But sure, since you already have a PSU you might as well use that one until it lasts or you get tired of the fan noise, assuming it has a fan.

    2 MOV's rated at 160 joules 36vdc
    each and a large filter cap as his motor is pulling about 200w
