thanks i think i have made some progress. i think my power supply does not draw enough amps to turn the motor. i had it on the bench and had about 12 amps on the gauge and i could not turn the commutator by hand, so i think it will work. Tomorrow i will bring a 28 volt aircraft battery home and try it with it installed on the cart. Does anyone know how many amps these motors draw??? Thanks again

I think you may have it wired incorrectly and that 12 amps would be enough to spin it with no load. With voltage and current applied to a correctly wired motor, it should spin. Not against the intended direction, but certainly with it.

Bear in mind that you will be severly limited as to motor (read that as speed and torque) upgrades unless you convert that car to a solid state controller setup. That being said, what you have done so far looks pretty good.

You mentioned that you purchased wire for it already, what kind of wire did you purchase? regardless of whether you decide to convert the car to a Solid State system, I would recommend 4 gauge (at least) welding cable to minimize loss of power. Make sure the ends are very securly crimped on and if possible, dipped as well.

The benefit of retaining the Solenoid/resistor coil setup is that should something fail in the future, a brand new set of solenoids will run you less than $200 total (add new resistors and you are still under $300 total) versus a failed solid state controller that starts at about $300 and can go as high as $1000 or more (depending on the power level of the controller you purchase).

For a casual driver, there is nothing nicer than a well restored Resistor car.

rabbit, i pretty much know what i have here(i think) my plan is to get the cart back to original mechanically and make it look nice to use it at the campground for the rest of the season. come winter time who knows what will happen. as stated before this is a flood victim and i am trying to build it back to original as inexpensive as possible. so far i have everything i need except for the batteries and i have spent 512.00 dollars.

The wire i got is 4 gauge and i got it from work (we had an RJ 700 that we were scrapping, cant beat free aircraft wire)

Thanks for your input, are there any pics of wiring for an 86 cc? i have the wiring diagram but they dont expand very well.

Ok i couldnt resist i had to see if i could get it wired. here are a few pics. i used two 12 volt batteries for the test and it does work, all five solenoids and 4 speeds, the only problem is no reverse. Here is my question........ with 24 volts (two batteries) i am assuming that i only have 12 volts for reverse, is that enough to make it go backwards at half speed? i still have to secure all the wires and get the body painted but it is wired and does go forward Thanks for all the help
