Looks like I got me some more pics to take! It was silver aluminum and frankly didnt look like it was original to the cart... No mechanical anything into or out of it that I saw... Im back there again Friday for the weekend.. Internet on my cell is terrible out there so I gave up trying to post anything.. Trying to play with this and remodel my master bath and kitchen counters in the place so I am ready for company on Easter. Its got competition for my attention at the moment!

BTW, I have one more 12V deep cycle sitting on a shelf.. What BAD THINGS would likely occur if I stick that in and bump to 48V???

It is the Electric Speed Switch Assembly.. I have so much to learn!!
Just looked it up on Everything Carts to verify. Anyone have any insight as to the wiring?

There should be a linkage attached to the GO pedal:

You will burn up the existing resistor coils.
You will burn up 5 solenoids.
You wont have a convenient method to charge it.

I'm not saying they will burn immediately, but they WILL burn. On another note, the motor will be just fine!

It seems there would be nothing particularly unnatural about that fear

Thanks for the help and heads up on all this!

Got stung by a Scorpion last year inside my left ankle. Didnt really notice it at first, but about an hour later I though I had broken my leg... Heart pounding and erratic, sweats, hot then cold....

Then I was told the next day I shoulda gone to the hospital! Really?? Where was that guys drunk a$$ when I needed a ride!

It sucked!
