Truth is I don't think it would mater that much anyway. First time you apply brakes it would wear off.

Got to work on the cart some more in between other projects and obligations. Had everything painted and waiting. Got it back on 4 wheels today. Went together well and looks much better than it did.


Here's some of the buildup/crud that coated a lot of the parts.

I've got a spool gun coming for my welder so I can start welding aluminum and fix my battery trays.

So about 4.5 years go by and i still have this very stalled “project”. Going to try to get it together. Main issue for giving up was i personally done care for electric carts, ive done 2 with v twins, thats my preference, but this was for my grandparents as a gift. I asked my grandpa in 2013 if he thought he would use a golf cart to put around the neighborhood. He said HELL NO. He wont use it and grandma wont get on it. So i dropped it. I had already done a fair amount of work on it and spend a nice chunk of $ on it so i just gave up and parked it in the “project” part of the property.

This much later, i still have my grandparents but they are in quite bad health. Grandpa is a WW2 vet Marine, 97 years old if i remember right. He (was) in pretty good shape. Grandma started having more issues and slipping mentally. Shes down to 77lbs last i heard. But she had told grandpa she wished she had a golf cart to get out of the house and she NEVER asks for stuff like that. Grandpa said he would do anything to try to help her and make her happy, so im trying to get this done soon so i can get it to them while there is time. Its kinda a “any time” scenario. Last week grandpa had a seizure and stroke. Being the stubborn old Marine he is, hes still fighting!

So, project back on with a rush. I do not want to use the toaster parts. I think the PWM controller will be much safer. So can anyone point me in the right direction to get this old cart modernized?

Its a terrel axle with a ancient general electric motor. Wondering if id be better off getting a newer axle with newer motor.

Also gramps had another seizure last night so im not so sure he’ll even get to use this thing. Either way i need to get it going. Much better off having a usable cart around Or trying to sell a working cart over having this rolling chassis wasting away.
