Default What to look for

Checking out what I think is a 1983 ds. What do I look for, any problem areas, or how reliable are these? I have a 2010 Star with a controller and have no experience with the old style.
Thanks
Mike

This would be a resistor cart. Some people like them because they are reliable and they don't have any computers to go bad.
The only downside is the system is inefficient and uses a lot of battery power.

i work on a neighbors 85 .. it is a nice cart, very ez to work on
i've replaced the f/r switch , the solenoid pack (5), the mico switches (5), and battery cables this year .. but the cart was not running when he got it , now runs great just needs new batteries ... total cost was $155


things i'd check ... wires for corrosion,f/r switch, coils, bushings, ball joints, axles for leaks (if rear tires have oil on inside of rim), & listen to micro switches .
with key off and seat removed, slowly press gas pedal you should hear 5 "clicks"
and of course tires and battery age
