Default Re: Aquired a an old cart

yes, yes, and yes
Put the cart on jacks or block the rear wheels off of the ground.
remove the seat.
key on > cart in gear > wheels clear
Slowly push the gas peddle
1st solenoid clicks = it is the master powering up the others = no movewment
2nd solenoid clicks & the wheels begin to move
3rd move a bit faster
4th faster yet
5th clicks = do not hold WOT more than a second !!!
THe motor will explode free wheeling without a load.... DANGER !!!

Thanks I will try it! Just out of curiosity what does WOT mean?
"5th clicks = do not hold WOT more than a second !!!"

What do you know on the steering and speed question?

WOT = Wide Open Throttle


Is it a steering box or rack and pinion? CC mostly worn Delta arm bushings Cause a sloppy front end but if the steering itself is worn? ... NOt much you can do but look for wear parts... Tie rod ends etc?

I only get 4 clicks. The 5th never happens with the peddle to the floor. Do the solenoids run in order from left to right? Is there a way to meter them to see if they are getting power when they are supposed to fire?

Also, when the wheels are off the ground I have only one wheel spinning. Is this correct.

Get under the cart and have somebody wiggle the slop in the wheel ... you can see where the loose is coming from... I have another R&P but it isn't new either

Thumbs down Re: Aquired a an old cart

Thanks I will look at the steering. Anything on the solenoids. I dont think I hear the 5th click

What do the resistor coils - 1st, 2nd and 3rd speed do?

Oxfordlawn thanks for the charger. So far it is working. I have a few questions i need help with!!

How can I check to see if all solenoids are working?

I have a lot of play in my sterring. What is the best way to adjust it?

Is there a guage that I can buy and hook up to show how much current charge I have?

The million dollar question. I think the cart should run a litle faster. Would it have anything to do with a bad coil(s)?

Scotty B thanks for the previous help.
NOW YOU ASK
I have a 36V LED bar type meter sitting on my tool box I will never use and its brand new. I would have given it to you with the charger. Well if you want I will ship it to you and then just send me some money to cover the shipping costs.
