Default Converting Fwd/Rev lever to electrical switch

I am in the process of converting my 2000 DS Series cart's mechanical fwd/rev lever to an electrical switch using a reversing contactor.I have attached a wiring diagram that I did (my first CAD attempt) and would appreciate if an expert could check it out to see if there are any glaring errors. I have used Club Car, Alltrax and EV Drives wiring diagrams as references. Tks

the reversing contactor looks to be correct (high current side). im not sure about the mcor wiring as i don't have one personally.

heres a modified drawing depicting my setup sans main contactor. looks like we have M- and B+ swapped, but i don't think that matters.

Tks for input. The A1 on motor to B+ on controller is as shown on all 3 reference drawings, so I am inclined to leave it as is unless there is good reason to change

Tks for the input. As far as the diode is concerned it was on one of the reference diagrams so I put it in. Is it shown backwards ? its sitting between the battery + and the on/off switch.
With reference to the purple and yellow wires from the MCOR I put them in just to complete the drawing, as per the notes they are unchanged from current setup. yellow + purple -
Not sure about the " A B + - " if its related to the solenoids in the switching circuit, that circuit was only intended to show the coil wiring and I can't change the symbol.
