Bolt stuck on resistor coil standoff
Out of ideas here fellas.. I burned up my vglide last week and have been in the process of replacing some 6 gauge wires that also melted.. I've got everything replaced except for one 6 gauge wire from the vglide to the resistor coils..
The nut has melted to the coil standoff bolt.. I've tried the underneath bolt, PB blaster, heat, everything short of grinding it off.. Of course it's now stripped and my only choice left is a pair of channel locks but i've given it my grizzly bear wrench technique with no avail..
Anyone have the same problem and figured out a solution other than cutting off the coil standoff bolt or replacing the entire resistor coils themselves? It also feels like the resistor coil standoff bolt is melted to the resistor as that is also not moving.. Any ideas will be helpful.. Thanks fellas!

Re: Bolt stuck on resistor coil standoff
I just bought new coils and standoff bolts last week from blockbustergolfcars p/n 6755. Had to cut the old standoffs off. Mine were so burned and corroded, they had to go. The best way to get them off is to use two socket wrenches, lay under the cart, and try to turn them both at the same time without letting the bolt spin at all. I fudged up the fiberglass when mine turned on me. Like I said, I just cut them off with a grinder and started over. Best thing I could have done...
Oh, and I'd go with 4 gauge wire if I were you. I feel the 6 gauge is undersized. I changed out the 6 gauge and the 4 gauge doesn't get as warm. ANY time a wire gets warm, it's because the current demand it too great for the wire, and my wires get pretty darn warm. Maybe also because I am running a modified motor.
