Default V Glide Smashed

I have a 93 club car 36v. The cart turned over tossing the batteries and they snapped off and smashed the V glide to pieces. I need to buy an entire v glide assembly and fix a few other minor things. Can anyone help with instructions (pictures always help too) on how to hook up the new one and where is the best place to buy a new v glide. The prices I have found vary 100 plus dollars! Thanks

Default Re: V Glide Smashed

I have a 94 CC DS. I got mine at buggies unlimited. Its pretty starightforward. There is a mechanical linkage and some small wires and a single nut holding the V glide to the frame.. For the wires, disconnect only one at a time and reconnect them to the appropriate place. For the mecanical linkage to the throttle pedal, there are several points you can disconnect it. I ended up taking out the nut from the shaft protruding from the V glide and then connecting it to the linkage to the pedal. Finally, the nut. It seemed odd to me that only a singlt nut holds the V glide down, but that is the way I remember it. Maybe someone else will chime in. Hope this helps. BTW, how the heck did you flip your cart?

That's another problem I have. When the cart turned over all the wires were disconnected except the lower two. I was not around when the cart turned and really haven't found out and may never find out exactly how it happened.

If I remember correctly, there were 2 wires from the V glide. One went into the harness and the other went to the FNR switch. Sorry, thats all I remember.......

I don't know if this will work for you, but ScottyB has a conversion kit for removing the V-Glide.

http://www.cartsunlimited.net/Scotty...rsion_Kit.html

(Look at the bottom of the page for a picture)

The best way to find out if it'll work is to contact Scotty, he'll be able to tell you more about it.

This sure builds a case for Battery hold downs, don't it. Maybe just the Vglide case is broken? It can be bought separately for less than the whole thing from one of our good sponsors The micro switch in the Vglide connects to a power supply from the ignition and goes to the + side of the solenoid in most carts... this activates the solenoid when you press the gas, click ... click.
