Default 1991 Club Car 36V resistor Cart rebuild Help

First I want to say thank you all for all the info that is already out here. Just like anything else, I find myself spending more time reading and going in circles than finding what I may or maynot need.

I recently purchased my first golf cart. It is a 1991 Club Car 36v resistor cart with a v-glide. I purchased 6 New Trojan batteries for this car and found out the the V-Glide was toast. No, I have not ever worked on a golf cart before but do considerer myself very good with anything that moves....lol.

I ordered a new V-glide and within 4 days it was toast. So I gather that there are other issues causing this part to melt the brush and arm and render the cart dead.

Yes, money is always and issue. I am considering replacing the resistor wires/coils, the F/R switch, the charging receptacle (if I can find one as I am charging directly to the battery bank at this time with a Stanely charger), the selinoide as well as yet another V-glide unit. It already has new battery cables and the cables to the motor and V-glide look exceptional. Previous owner didn't have the key hooked up, looks to have bypassed a micro switch (I have already replaced) and I did add some LED lighting using 12Volts (only need them for about 15 minutes every other week so I just ran them off of two batteries).

My Question is? What could I be missing? I considered converting to solid state ("Scotty") but $700 plus seemed steep for me at this time. Parts I've priced so far total about $315 with free shipping and would keep it pretty much stock.

I drive this cart only on weekends when I have my daughter. It will travel about 3 to 5 miles in a day (not used on a golf course) over mostly paved roads and occasionally up and down a very small incline of about 30 degrees. It will carry on average about two adults, on or two kids (6 to 9 yrs old) and and Ice chest. Just trying to keep it simple and cheap. My 6 yr. old daughter is driving it. Don't really need it to go much faster......

If someone offers a complete kit for the parts that I need (as stated above) please send me a link or a email.

Thank you all for your time, your patience, and your expertise.

Daniel

If the coils aren't burnt in half or cracked , you don't need new ones . ....where is the vglide melted at ? the top contact ?......you have to adjust the face of the wiper arm so it hits flat........

check this thread.....

the top part of the wiper arm and the brush are melted. I was not aware of any adjustment however it did appear to fit flush to the contacts before I installed it. I will double check that when the new on comes in. I know I can just get a new arm and brush as well. Thank you for your help.

I picked up a micro switch at the local golf cart store to replace the one that was on the F/R switch. What I got was one with 3 connectors on it instead of two. How should this be wired? Blue wire to the top post but should the yellow wire go to the middle post or the bottom post? Thanks everyone. Waiting of parts for VGlide to come in as well as some other items.

it not only has to fit flush , it HAS to travel all the way to the top contact at full throttle.....take out the batteries on that side so you can really get in there and look....if it is "in between " contacts , that might do it.....loose connections too.....also , have to learn to drive these resistor carts a little different.....my wife liked to "put " around at low speeds when we first got ours and I went through the same ordeal.....best states a V-Glide can be in are "off" and "wide open"......not that use cant use it anywhere in between mind you but anywhere in between puts the most load on things......
