36V club car resistor mounting bracket
 
Hi Guys i inherited an old 83 Club car resistor cart. Well i have been trying to fix all kinds of things on it. Today one of the resistor coil brackets broke and i feel they will al break as soon as i start working on them. Can i make new ones out of stainless? I have scrap laying around and don't mind a little work. was also wondering if I shortened the coil a tad could i pick up some speed. Thanks guys

Shortening the coils won’t increase speed- at full speed a cart like that bypasses all the resistors and runs wide open- batteries straight to the motor. The resistors are the old fashioned way of providing slow speeds.

The best thing you can do for it in the future is get a solid-state conversion kit from Scotty at cartsunlimited.net.

Welcome to the site BTW.

Thanks in the future i will look some some upgrades for now just want it running, so think I could make the resistor brackets out of stainless..?

You’re talking about the metal plate that goes between the solenoid and the coil? Stainless should work fine for that. I believe they are aluminum originally.
