Good pix's mad ,
get the motor pulled and anything else which was below water and a good hair dryer.
The longer it has moisture in it, the further down the road you will have
something crap out ,Micro switches and Solenoids are Very prone to leakage.

does anyone else feel in light of my new found discovery of cart going forward and reverse that this mcor may in fact be the problem?

update:
disassembled the mcor
took solder gun and melted the solder so the circuit board could be lifted from the prongs of the connector.

be mindful of spring that is soon to shoot up at you(easily reasssembled)
once circuit board lifted,a roller micro switch is revealed.
i cleaned it with a solvent for critical circuitry,pressed the roller in and out and slowly it began trying to move in and out.
it still wasn't clicking, so i loosened the two screws(overbuilt) and got a little clicking action,
removed both screws and got a constant clicking.

replaced the two terminals with the prongs,replaced micro switch(without the two screws), reassembled spring mechanism a(bit tricky since the spring has to be pulled from underneath pedal assembly) used 5200 marine sealant tapped cover back on top,put mcor back in place on cart, hooked up connectors,
and watched my wife smile as the cart slowly went forwad and reverse.
she then cruised the neighborhood.

thanks for the input received

Hell of a place to hide a $5 micro-switch. I have never seen anybody open an MCOR let alone fix it. My hats off to you there...... I wonder what's next though?
