Always good news...

I saw a 706 number flash up but I didn't recognize it as yours. Sorry about that. I sort of "screen" my calls sometimes.

And always good news to hear about the bill. I have a sort of related story to tell about that sort of thing. I went to have the Plugs changed in my truck today and it was estimated at $500!!!! For a plug change. These later model F150's have an issue with a plug that was supplied that has a tendency to come apart if your not careful. So I decided not to risk it and let the dealership do it. Of course they want to do a complete fuel system flush to loosen them up... and then there is no telling of one will break and have to be extracted at $40 more per plug. So total bill when done, and I had no plugs break, was $560... for FREAKIN SPARK PLUGS! Imagine that. Be aware of this... but of course its only once in 100K and the new plugs are not prone to this.

Anyway... I am awash with things to fix for some reason.

David, I will be on a job site tomorrow doing a little consulting work. Might not be able to answer. I will however check messages. Thanks for the update.

You wouldn't happen to have an extended roof and its brackets laying around up there to sell/trade with some to boot would ya?

Sorry to hear that about your truck. What a pain. I've been there though. I changed plugs in my wife's Tahoe a couple months back and it only took about 15 minutes so naturally I opted to help my buddy out with his F-150, thinking that it would be just as easy... Wow what a mistake that was! 4 hours later we were finished, and thank god none of them broke. About the roof though, we don't have anything used. We've got plenty of new ones though but they're pretty pricey! We'll talk it about it more on the phone.

I have had Fords trucks since I was like 15 years old. This new stuff is making me rethink my loyalty. I have though had good luck with their trucks. Just glad I read around and realized what was going to be like and didn't do it myself. You did real good to do it in 4 hours. If it was an 04 and up for sure. The Ford Mechanics book allows only 4 hours!

Sounds good. I Was thinking they were like $300 new? We'll talk tomorrow.

.... on second thought.... that extended roof would get in the way or my use of the back to refill my Deer Feeders. I often stand on that platform to get high enough to pour in the feed at the top. Wouldn't be able to to that with that rear part of the roof in the way.

True....good point. Still no word from Club Car on the speed code. I hope it'll show up tomorrow. Sorry to keep you waiting.

I would be interested to know how a dealer fixes the 82% MCOR? I know how I fix them, but to make it all back to new, you would have to replace the MCOR pivot shaft rod and the gas pedal. Just wondering if a dealership goes to that extreme to fix that problem? And by the way, thank you for being an honest person. "All Dawg's have their day"

You know T. that is a great question.

I just got back from the round trip to Augusta and all I can tell you is that its stupid fast now. And barely slows down going up a hill. By the time I got back it was rather dark so I only got one good run but it is ridiculous how much of an improvement that made. It was as if the whole power band was compressed and reduced. In "seat of the pants" feel its got twice the power, even down low, than it used to have. Not I realize that's not really the case but it feels like it. And it also has some to do with removing the speed limiter too I think.

I believe, in discussion earlier with David that they do both depending on the condition. Shimming was discussed but replacement also was discussed too. What is on my invoice says "Adjusted MCOR..."

David went out of his way to make me happy. Did all sorts of little favors tucking wiring I had left dangling. Neatening things up and such.

If you get a chance and have a need, take a run down to Augusta. Its worth the trip. If your within three or even four hours ride this is the place to go. I am not making the trip in about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Its actually outside the city in Evans which is, I think, the North West side. Or at least West anyway. The company David works for and with is rather large operation. Bigger than most. They have several Acres of carts, parts and a huge well maintained and condition shop. Located right next to (almost) Club Car itself. They also have some real neat toys laying around. I want to take a trip back some day and stop by just to chat and discuss. Both times I have been down both David and I were on short time. But there are some things that interest me back there for possible projects. One in particular, while not a project but appeared fairly new, was a Cub car 4 seater off road with utility bed Diesel unit that looked like the Ricky to me.

To answer both of your questions is pretty simple actually. Being a dealer, we do anything in our power to please the customer..... If the customer wants to replace everything that's fine. But if I feel I can shim the Drive Bar and fix everything to work like it did when it was new, I always encourage that route simply for the fact that it's much cheaper. It's not a jerry-rig fix. The Club Car used car department does the same thing. I think there's a write up about it on a previous thread. I'll sum it all up though.. If the hill brake is functioning properly, shimming is the way to go. If the wear is so bad that the hill brake will not function, parts must then be replaced. In Phil's case, there was absolutely no wear on the accel brackets under the car. His was all in the drive bar, I've actually never seen a drive bar worn this much. After I put the spacer on it, it went right back to 100% and worked like a champ.
