Any size upgrade to cables is a good thing...they should all be the same size.

The F1 and F2 wires do not need to be upgraded. Those are your field wires. 10 gauge is the OEM size for them and will work fine on all cars. The A1 and A2 wires are 6 gauge from the factory and should be upgraded to match the cables on the rest of the system. Otherwise there's no purpose in a cable upgrade. Thank you for your order.

No one addressed his question, as to does it matter which side faces out on the magnet?

got the cart lifted up and you were right it was a bit of a pain. HOWEVER the paint can opener did the trick, got the old ring out and the new one in. When we got everything back together and was going for the first test run, pressed the pedal, heard the solenoid click and the cart only moved an inch or so. tried this several times with the same outcome. then we push the cart just a little bit and it took off. ran around the block a few times and was noticeably faster than before. There were a couple of times that the cart seems to hesitate when running. not sure why. all in all it was a great weekend as we got everything done that we planned on.. thanks for all the help

Did you have the power disconnected from the battery pack when you put the magnet in the motor?

That doesn't kill power to your motor. Flipping the tow/switch simply kills the power to the controller via the 16 pin connector. The 6 gauge cables are still hot. Hopefully you didn't damage your controller during the magnet install.

Question:

Last night i attempted to remove my neighbors club car speed magnet: Please note, i don't know what year but he said the magnet will work on his cart.

While trying to remove the magnet it separated into two pieces (.75 + .25). The inner part of the magnet is still connected and won't come off. We tried two paint can openers with no removal results.

Question, was the speed magnet installed with an arbor press on s assembly line? I don't wont to mare up his motor while trying to remove it. I wonder if the metal part is corroded to the shaft. Is there a type of cam puller that could be used, much like a fly wheel puller?

Last night we reinstalled the magnet with the 2/3 side. The cart took off like a champ and reached 28 mph on the hill. After a few hours the cart went to limp mode, 5 MPH.

I wonder if the magnet popped off since we only have a piece of it installed. Anyways, id really like to get the new speed magnet on but i don't think i can without sometime of tool.

One more question about the magnet - does it spin with the motor or is it stay in place.

Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

thanks jpc
