Lakebit, If all you did was drive on flat land you could get by with your stock motor. You mentioned earlier that you lived in a hilly area(probably a lot like Chattanooga). What you are going to need is some HP. I would go with at least a 6hp motor. I say that because that is what Club Car installs in there Villager LSV's. That should give you plenty of hill climbing power and keep you under 25 mph to remain street legal.

Lakebit,

Take it to the bank that there won't be any police officer that insists he/she goes for a ride with you to verify your top speed. My cart is street legal, has been for several years, 2009, and it does 30+ MPH.

Scubabud. If you were ever in an accident and it was found that your vehicle did not conform to standards for a LSV I suspect that you would put yourself in line for some serious lawsuits that insurance wouldn't cover. Take your chances, I prefer not to.

You're kidding right?!?!?!?

If one was going over 25 MPH and hit someone, something then MAYBE... if it could be proved to be the case. Because my vehicle can do over 30+ MPH doesn't mean that I do that speed. My GPS acts like my speedometer which also records max speed as well. And many if not most LSV production vehicles can do over the 25 MPH speed limits including Star Cars and GEM cars.

Thanks for your concern... and I'll take my chances... LOL

New issue today. When out to play four letter word (flog) and after 5 holes cart made thump when accelerator pushed, lunged and stopped, would not move. Put in tow for several minuets and tried again, was able to pull off course to friends house. Battery indicator was above 50% charge but same thing when I went to leave his house, had to leave cart.
New Trojan T 185 batteries replaced in January, thought it might be MCOR at first but cart moved after rest. Will go with meter tomorrow and check things out.
Any ideas to check first?

The MCOR can definitely be at fault. That's usually how they act when they fail. Often times it takes forever to get one to fail, but when they do, it takes forever to get them running again.

I took charger over and charged batteries for about 4 1/2 hours, charge indicator shows 100% drove cart home, about 1/4 mile, all went well until I stopped cart and put in reverse, hard bump and stopped, let cart set a couple minutes was able to back cart into garage. Took ohm reading between white and yellow wire on MCOR reading 5.8 pedel up 5.4 when micro switch clicked and .998 k ohms with pedal down. Read between yellow and purple wire on MCOR 1.5 pedal up 1.2 when micro clicked and 5.8 with pedal down.
My question can the MCOR be that erratic and why would the cart move after letting it set for a period of time?

Nevermind, I just saw that you already have the MCOR. As for the clunking, is it a mechanical clunking, like something possibly in the pedal assembly?

The resistance numbers look fine, but that is not the part of the MCOR that is failing...

You need to jump the 2 pin connector, that is where the micro switch that signals to the controller the pedal is engaged is located.

Just put a small paper clip into the 2 pin plug on the harness side and tape it, see if the cart drives fine.

I think You transposed the numbers on Your yellow to purple test, the resistance should have gone up as You pressed the pedal and not 1.5 to 1.2 to 5.8k.

As for your question, there are 2 spring loaded contacts inside the micro switch to provide a "fast" disconnect, when the spring mechanism brakes, it can get jammed and behave erratically. The paper clip test will check if that is the case.

I don't know for sure but I think you will get a HPD error with the paper clip on a IQ cart.
