Default EZ GO under wate

I picked up a 48 volt EZ GO that was under water

I pulled the motor and had it cleaned, I also drained the differential

I want to find a source where I can get free service manual information and wiring diagrams to aid me in this rebuild

I would like to strip it down more to make sure all the water is gone

Also I would like to find out if the batteries can be refurbised by replacing the acid

Here is the model information

Serial# 745393
Manf Code E2493

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated

Thank You Beatnick

you sure its a 48 volt? E-Z didn,t make one in 93 i still don,t think they do.......unless the cart was modified......check battery fill holes 3 holes is a 6 volt battery or a 36 volt cart if they have 4 holes than its a 48 volt cart so double check them all to make sure they arn,t mixed and matched.........there is a place to download E-Z go service manuals but you,ll have to wait for one of the guys who knows the addy of the site.............................

The RXV line is 48 volts with an AC motor

First question, Fresh or Salt?

If salt, you must be much more dilligent. Mine was recently flooded during Hurricane IKE and as a result I had to replace:

Controller
Motor
Solenoid
Resistor
FNR switch bus bar
ITS throttle microswitch (accelerator petal)
Charger Receptacle reed switch
Solenoid Diode
FNR switch micro switchs (qty 2)
FNR switch contact board
Brake cable set
Light kit

Also found water in the following locations:
steering boot
ITS throttle box
motor (obviously)

So far, the following appear OK:
Brakes & drums
Differential (drained - no water)
front bearings/spindles
rear axle bearings

When a cart submerges, the batteries will burn clear any wires that remain connected. I lost wires at the solenoid, resistor, key switch, and reed switch. Decided to rewire most of it with new wires. Was able to reuse the ITS harness and keyswitch harness once I placed new ends on it, but probably should just replace them anyway.

Trojan T-105 batteries were submerged but appear OK, I believe the surge lasted between 4 & 6 hours and peaked about 3 inches over the batteries.

I stripped the body down to the bare frame, removed all wires, all plastic, anything that was not going to be pressure washed (3600 PSI using blasting tip). Used pressure washer to peal any rust and loose paint from the frame. Repainted frame and cleaned up all the parts.

Also did some opportunistic upgrades while in there.
HD leaf springs
5" lift kit (it came with a home made lift from previous owner)
diamond plate
2 speed motor
400A controller
HD solenoid, bus bars

So far I am in for just over $2000 in parts and materials. Good luck!
