Default Re: Ancient cart slow

Ok. Just tested some things. At each pair of batteries, I'm reading a hair over 13v. At the solenoids, its reading 19.6 on the smaller lugs when I engage the pedal.

Except for the last solenoid that has no resistors, and connects straight to the motor at what I believe is A2. Its the white wire, 3rd down from the top lug on the motor.

So, Im thinking that solenoid is bad, is that the top speed solenoid, and the reason Im only getting 8mph?

That solenoid was broken. Replaced, and still slow.

My battery pack is sitting at 38.5v, but I'm only getting 19v at the solenoids? I've checked and triple checked the wiring at the batteries. Could it still be a MS issue?

So, it turns out I'm an idiot. Had the F&R switch wired back up wrong. I was only getting 19v at the solenoids, now its at 38.

Right at about 11 on some equally old, squishy tires. I'm afraid to air them up with all the dry rot and cracking.

Got a fresh set of 12's coming in on Tuesday. Gives me time to get the body off and coated. I'll post some pics as I go along.

Cool!

You can jump together the two bottom lugs on the FNR with the wire that used to run 18 volts to reverse and have full power in both directions if that's something you'd like.

I see you're unsure about the year of your cart. If you can post your serial number, we will figure it out

I'll do that. It's on the passenger side, right?
