Appreciate it and will call them for sure Mon. Taking it all apart right now and making sure all the wires have no breaks and etc. Better off with no power and the resistor catching on fire anyways. Hopefully they will figure it out since they sent me all the parts....

Thanks for the help

I talked to the vendor today and they told me the following

"95 with black and white are 0-5k, 95 with yellow and green are 5k-0 " I do have the black and white wires.

Its the same thing they asked about before I ordered the parts. I`m checking the microswitches next to see if one of them has possibly failed. I had checked the one but will see what the others do....

Default Its Alive

Well I contacted the sponsor and they had a list of things for me to try and look at. I ran a few of the things and decided to pull all of the wires out of the harness for the two under there. I found where someone had repaired a few of the small wires where the two harnesses come together. I didnt know this as we had bought it used a few yrs back. The wires had chaffed and rubbed into each other and a few had fused themselves together. I dont know if it was all the moving around from the upgrade, the added power or possibly the water that got into it from its submersion awhile back. They definitely were leaking power back and forth through each other from the exposed wires on each

I pulled the wires and replaced the bad parts, soldered all new connectors and heat shrinked it all. I put the POS battery cable back on and hit the pedal and the cart fired right up. Ran it for a good 10 tries and it worked every time .

I do know now after running it up and down the street the V-Glide needs replacing and or repair as its very erratic in its power band. Not real smooth in its transitions from the different speeds

The cart runs great though and has about same speed but huge improvement in torque

JUST WANTED TO THANK ALL WHO HELPED ME WITH THIS ALL!!!!!

A high performance motor and a multi-step potentiometer will be jumpy. Problem is the gap between the contacts is much more pronounced with a high performance motor. I've tried just about every resistor setup imaginable. The following will help but if you really want smooth speed transition you'll have to upgrade to a PB-6 or a MCOR. I went with the PB-6 but others have had good luck with the MCOR.

First time attaching a pic...hope it works.

Well, looks like I got the process right but the numbers are hard to read.

Starting from the top:
1500
1500
1500
920
720
920

It's not critical that the resistors be exactly what is listed...close is good enough. Again, you'll see improvement but may not be totally satisfied.

If unhappy with speed changes go with compatable PB-6 as its much better than a MCOR unit. Does require some fabrication but very simple to do.

Do they make a unit for a 0-5k controller or are they for 5k-0 controllers??

Thanks for the info and numbers as it gives me another option

I have only seen Curtis PB6 in 0-5K, but there may be 5K-0 available?
Check sponsor suppliers.
Usually with controler changes the common replacement for pedal control is PB-6?
My 1996 early model Club Car had came from the factory with curtis controler #1204 and still has it mounted for 0-5K from factory? It has the PRE- MOCR speed control that will be replaced with PB-6. These were transition years ( 1995-1996-1996 mid year up switch over ) so anything is possible along with fact that many carts have had available parts changed?

Just a thought. I am not sure if you are able to do this and someone with more knowledge can probably answer this, but could you change a 0-5k to a 5-0k pot, by switch the connections internally??
