Thanks Scottyb,
I searched for quite awhile but couldn't find any particulars on how to do it.
Boy, here I thought I had everything ready for this conversion until I hit this little snafu. Thanks again.

Thought I would bring this post back to the top. I am about to start my conversion of a '92 CC DS 36V Resistor Cart.

Looking to keep it 36v for now, but go ahead and convert it over with an AXE4855, PB-6, Curtis Albright 400a Solenoid.

Found some 2ga welding cable but think I am getting a little hosed on the price at $52 for 25'. Seem to remember someone saying they got it for around $30. No big deal, inflation I guess!

I will also be adding a lift kit and tires, but still up in the air as to what size. Not sure if I want to go 6" or just 4". Any thoughts?

Thanks for all the great post in this topic.

$2 a ft for #2 ain't bad..... the big cost is in the lug connectors.
Are you going to go with the 0-5k throttle?

Yes, going with 0-5k.

Taking the body off today to be painted and work on the frame.

Even on the CC I like to go with the 0-5k just because of the availability of parts issue... keep us up to date with pics

Took the front body off today and did some sanding. I have a big question. I know the rear body is fiber glass, but the front is completely different and very flexible. Is it just plastic? I was assuming it was fiber glass like the rear, but found out otherwise.

Do I need to prime the surface differently? Any suggestions on what use?

Thanks,

Robert

Originally it was probably all fiberglass but somebody put a newer plastic cowl on it... yes you need to treat that differently... Go to the Paint and body section for complete and sometimes intense direction on how to paint ... this is a 36 to 48v conversion thread..... Start a build thread and post pics of your progress so others can follow along and give their input ...

Ok, I am hip deep in the wiring on my conversion and am using the diagram below for the Altrax AXE.

Since it is for a Club Car, but using the PB-6, the throttle wiring would be slightly different right? Instead of Yellow/Green/Purple am I going to just have the Black and White coming off the PB-6 going to terminals 2 and 3?

What about the 3 contacts on the switch on the PB-6? Which one goes to terminal 1?

And also, what about the micros switches on the F&R? Where do they go?

Thanks,

Robert
