Christmas party tonight and youth football tomorrow and then I'm all over getting the new controller and solenoid mounted as well as getting oil in the diff so I can do a test ride.

Okay, got the oil in the diff changed out. Book called for SAE 30, so that's what I ended up using, but it seemed way lighter than what came out. Many was the fluid in the diff black and dirty though. Also cleaned the frame rails up and removed the rear seat assembly since the previous pictures. My new folding rear seat shows up tomorrow, along with cables form Scottyb and another Alltrax Club Car IQ adapter board.


Also, got the (new to me) Alltrax DCX500 controller mounted and now I'm working on solenoid mounting locations. I got mounting bolts into the middle and right holes (4 total), but couldn't put any into the left holes as the voltage reducer is on the other side. Think this is a big deal? I think my 400 was mounted with only 2 bolts in the center location.



Any reason this wouldn't work for the new HD 400amp solenoid? The stock solenoid used to be to the left of that ground lug underneath the OBC. I'll be using 2ga cables, but I'm guessing they will be pretty flexible.

Hey tx, you could mount the solenoid piggy back on the controller, thats what tose two screw holes are for, but you probably knew that already, just looks like you are running low on space.

Yeah, I have the screws to mount into those spots, but it just didn't seem very secure to me as the plastic mount tabs give it a little bounce and wiggle while the cart is moving. Also, I wanted to be able to plug in the serial cable while driving without having to move anything, which is the main reason.

Thanks for the pointer though. :)

Agreed it is poor design as you cannot access the programming port.

That's 2 good reasons to mount it where you are holding it. Is your + main cable going to reach there? And are the lugs on your #1 main cable and #2 cables big enough for the 3/8 terminals on that big solenoid?

Good question. My current 4 ga cable set would fit as this is closer to battery + than the stock location and I think the lugs would fit or could be made to fit, but it doesn't really matter because I'm not using them.

I'm installing the cable set you sent me that I'll get tomorrow, so you tell me if they should fit.

Okay, I think I have all of the wires installed now.

Scottyb, the new cables are great! Super nice looking and extremely flexible for their size. Realistically you could probably cut the controller to motor cables in half and still have plenty for the average install. I had a ton of cable to wrap up and tie out of the way. Also, the ring terminals fit the solenoid just fine. :)

Couple more views as I'm getting closer to getting everything ready to roll tonight. I honestly didn't realize how bad the rear body was looking until now. The prior rear seat just rubbed on it for the last 8 years, so it has made a mess of the paint. Hopefully the new seat covers it as well. I'm thinking I'll need to get some of those fender pad things though. Enjoy!
