what type of potentiometer is recomended?
Im looking at a mild build, eventually a slight lift, 4" is the smallest heavy duty one Ive found so far, and slighly bigger tires- its a worker and I climb curbs with it often.
I may just put HD rear springs on and leave it- I figure I can put 2" taller tires on with no lift...
I dont mean to ramble, but you guys with the knowledge need to know what the end goal is:)
I need recomendations on replacing v-glide, with what? type of charger to look for? I dont wanna short wire and use a 12v as well. controller, Im thinking a take off or reman will suit me fine at 275-300 amps. wire size for this setup? solenoid will have to change. is the HD F/R switch a must at this amperage?
I will talk about lift and tires more another day.
Thank you
I find the 36v V-glide to melt in any 48v application. I use as 0-5k Curtis potentiometer + matching controller. Yes, you could use a 300a controller but you should get it in 0-5k. Used controllers are out there, just not a lot of 0-5k 300a 48v

You could use your existing V Glide unit ( NOT THE BEST ) ( existing unit would need complete clean up and replacement of any worn or weak parts as low voltage does not like bad contacts ) by removing all 6 guage cables on back side of unit and installing small electronic resistors where cables were and by adding 36 to 48 volt Alltrax controller and small guage wiring you would be OK. Cost would be about $55.00 plus shipping.
CC part numbers
#101826901 300 ohms, 101826902 390 ohms, 1016015 750 ohms, 101826903 1000 ohms, 101826904 2200 ohms.
Best is either a MCOR speed control but on your older cart it may have linkage issues connecting, OR in my opinion a Curtis PB-6 speed control mounted in same general location as V Glide and hooked to existing linkage ( some adaptions needed I have pics of several good installations if you would need them )

You lost me Old Mec, are you refering to a resistor set-up?, as mine is not.
Pics would be great, but I have a couple months of parts gathering to do once I figure out which ones to gather.
Thanx

SORRY From pictures you sent looked like you have Pict #1 a V Glide unit, #2 a pic of what looked like your charger BUT as you later stated Controller so yes you already have the resistors I indicated.
Be carefull when purchasing a up graded 36 to 48 volt solid state controller as stock V Glide unit OR MCOR are 5K-0 ohm input, while PB-6 is normally a 0-5K ohm input unit. Some after market controllers can be set for at purchase or if you know how you can do it with a special adapter cable and your home computer.

Hi Owen,
These guys out here are great and really know what they are talking about. They helped me be able to convert my 36v to 48v. I love my ride now!!!

Here is a link to the thread for my conversion and what I did. Just an option for you.

36v to 48V conversion ready for batteries
