Default Questions on DS F/R Micro switches and mocor

Im slowly building/converting an 05 CC regen to a DS cart. I have a DS wiring harness, Im using the regen mocor(the DS wiring harnes plugged in correctly) and a F/R switch that also has the 3 micro switches bolted to the back. And of course I have switched out the motor, OBC and the controller. My questions are...
1. Does anybody have the wiring diagram that shows the switch logic? The diagram I have (from the thumnails) doesnt show the terminals at NC or NO when F/R is in neutral position.
So this is what I've come up with so far...
Switch 1 (closest to the front of the cart) this is a 2 contact switch;
contact on top has white/black wire
contact on the bottom has white/green wire
this switch is NO (normally open) when the F/R is in neutral and NC (normally closed) when the F/R is in forward or reverse. This switch has a switch inside the mocor and the key switch in it's loop and looks like it puts power to the controller #1 stakon when the key is on and the throttle is pushed and the F/R is in forward or reverse. Is this correct?

Switch 2 (middle switch) this is a 3 way switch with 3 wires coming out
Top wire Black is the common and is connected to the red/white wire going to controller B-
center wire Blue is the NO contact when the F/R switch is in Neutral and in Forward but NC when the F/S is in Reverse (this wire isn't used per my diagram)
bottom wire red is the NC contact when the F/R switch is in Neutral and Forward and NO when the F/R switch is in Reverse, and is connected to the orange wire (from the reverse buzzer) the buzzer stays on while in Neutral and Forward
I belive the orange wire from the buzzer should go to the blue wire is this correct?

Switch 3 (farthest to the rear) this is also a 3 way switch with 3 wires coming out
top wire green is the common and is connected to the green wire that goes to the controller #2 stakon (for the mocor resistance)
center wire black is the NO contact when F/R is in Neutral and Forward and NC when in Reverse and is connected to the black wire from the mocor
bottom wire white is the NC contact when the F/R is in Neutral and Forward and is NO when in F/R is in Reverse this wire connects to the white wire from the mocor.

On switch 3, does this allow the mocor resistance to work when the switch is in all positions (Forward/Neutral/Reverse)?

My Mocor resistance readings are...
F/R in Neutral or Forward and the trottle isnt pushed = 8490 ohms
when trottle is pushed all the way down = 2100 ohms
this is a 6k diff is this ok? I thought they were 5k pots. Is there some adjustments I need to make to the linkage?
F/R in Reverse and the throttle isnt pushed = 13520 ohms
when the trottle is pushed all the way = 7190
Is this normal?

Sorry about the long post, just trying to give as much info as possible to get the few questions answered.
Thanks

Thanks Gleemo, that is the diagram I needed. As far as the year model I'm shooting for would be an 05. What does the resistor and diode on the soleniod do? Thats the only thing I dont have yet...

One is a load resistor, to keep sparks from flying each time the large terminals close.
The diode (I believe) is for isolation on the small cables to keep a reverse spike from
feeding back-wards into your electronics

Yep Diode only lets source go 1 way if you install it backwards, Guess What?

Be sure and look close.

The resistor is actually used to precharge the large capacitors inside the controller. The previous post about arcing is correct, but resistor also makes sure a surge does not hit the controller. I have seen new controllers ruined because 1. the switch was not in tow 2. switch key was on.and 3. Unit was either in forward or reverse. happens worst on E-Z-GO carts but will also mess up G-16 Yamaha and Club cars..

Thanks for the replies everybody, I installed the resistor and found out that the new 48 volt soleniod I purchased had the diode already...very small but soldered in the small connections. The electrical part of this cart is now running great. I have another question but will start a new thread.

Thanks for keeping us informed
