Default V Glides

I recently purchased a used cc cart with the serial number showing it to be a 87 model, it has the V GLide pie shaped thing. I was looking to go ahead and replace the V Glide while I have it tore down to the frame because it is easy to get to with out the body installed, I am having trouble finding one for 87 Model. Earliest model I can find is for 89 model. Am I reading the serial number correctly? It is A8728122125
Thanks

I believe the V - Glide was the same for models from 84 - 91

The V-glide was introduced with the resistor coils which followed the 5 solenoid drive set up. I too thought this happened in 1989. Could all of these older V-glide carts have been updated?

You are right the golfcartpartsdirect.com website shows models 84-91 with the V-Glide but under the wiring section shows 89 - 91 with V-Glide and earlier 85-88 with speed switch limit switches.I presume the older models have or can be updated.

Thanks for the help, It must have been upgraded because i do not have any resistor selonoids. Should I go ahead and replace it while it is easily accessable while I have the body off or would that be a waste?
thanks

BJL, Pop the cover off the VGlide and look at the contacts. Check for bad pitting or excess wear, you goal is a good contact with the wiper brush (the part that moves when you press the gas pedal). I was able to clean my contacts with a white pencil eraser. DO NOT try to remove the fixed contacts! The wiper brush can spring back a little exposing the surface and also has a wear limit scored into it. It is easily replaced if need be for about $15. Finally, make sure your brush lies flat on the contacts. This can be done by removing the cotter pin and turning the very small screw on the wiper.
