Default Solid state conversion & 48v Upgrade Project

I'm about to undertake the task of doing a solid state conversion and 48v upgrade on my 88CC resistor cart. The cart currently is 36v with a 6" Allsports A-arm lift and 22-11-12 tires. I have a rear seat and HD spings on the rear.

I will try my best to photo-document the entire process starting with the deconstruction of the present configuration.

I placed an order yesterday with Scotty of Carts Unlimited for the components to complete the transformation. I can't express how much help Scotty has been in advising me on this project.

We came up with the following list of components for the build:

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
Digital LED battery meter

I'll be starting the deconstruction this afternoon.

Much more to follow....

Take baby steps , do one thing at a time (the ones which U can).
We see people on here who do it all in 1 fail(ed) swoop and then do not know what to troubleshoot when it does not work.

Thanks for the advice. After I receive the components, I plan to lay everything out and write out a plan to go by...sort of like a blueprint of the project.

I have confidence in BT. He has a plan and tech support if he should need it. That's sort of a plan and a backup plan Tear that silly 5 solenoid system down to the frame and lets build it back solid state 48v like it should be

Pics would be nice ~ Especially for the members who can't read!

Oh no, not at all. Sorry it may have come across that way. Heck, I'm in the middle of a conversion myself. No I think it's the best thing to do to those older carts. You will not be disappointed.
