Thanks Scotty...
I'm going to leave the controller where it is and swap the charger and reducer.

I used Eagle 1 Etching Aluminum Mag Wheel cleaner to get the frame clean. Just spray it on and the wash it off thoroughly.

I swapped positions with the charger and reducer. I like it much better this way. Thanks all for the recommendations. I started laying out the wiring to see how it will run. Next step is to mount the pot and tie in the linkage.

More to come....

Sorry for not updating y'all for awhile. It's a pain when work gets in the way of fun!!!

Finally got everything back together week before last just in time for our camping trip to Disney's Ft. Wilderness.

This was my first conversion and rebuild. I learned alot and had a blast doing it.

To review what I did...

I started with an 88 CC DS 36v that was stock with resistors and coils. I converted it to a controller and upgraded to 48v. Below is a list of the components:

480amp 36-48v non-programable controller
HD 200/800amp solenoid(resistor and diode)
Curtis PB-16 Potentiometer(0-5K)
Custom 4g cable set
48v on-board charger with AC receptacle with 30 ft 12-3 cord reel
Digital LED battery meter

I used the stock motor which is giving me LOTS of torque and a top speed on a new set of batteries of 24 mph.

I will post pictures of the details when I get a few taken. For now I have a before and after.

Thanks to Scotty B for all the technical support that her supplied in my efforts.

Amen Brother!!

I have the same problem. I can't get much done on my build either. I guess we can't complain, some people would like to have our problem. Nice job on your build.

I know I'm resurrecting a very old thread but I'm interested in knowing from BayouTiger how everything has held up. I have a '96 CC DS "toaster" cart that I'm tired of throwing v-glides at. I'm ready to go full solid state with voltage conversion too.

Thanks
