the 9 lb sledge thats a given.........................lolol............... ..........in all honesty its hard to say what tools to carry around but if i had to pick 3 it would be a voltage meter, a spark tester, and a test light..............with those you can diagnose a whole lot of issues.......................i didn,t mention spark tester in my other post so keep that in mind..........................

If I was going to limit tools to three things, it would be a volt meter, adjustable wrench, and electrical tape. Always keep a wiring diagram with cart. Print one up and put it in a double lock bag and tape it somewhere it will stay till needed.

If only three?......I have a flip-flop pr of pliers that is needle nose or reg with wire cutter. I'm with mike on the med crescent and a klien 10 bits in 1 screw driver.....I know these multi-tools are not the best but, the cover the most bases. Of course always carry a sharp knife Is that cheating?

Yup........ My 96 EZwent has Allens in several places, and where most others have the standard hex head. Mine were on the windshield frame, rocker pannel metal steps and access cover over the motor.

I have been replacing them whenever I take any off.

OK, I do recall the access cover on mine were actually Torx, but a #1 Phillips worked fine too.

Thanx for the tip-in!

the E-Z go gas carts have several allen screws and a frew torx heads none on the elec..........the items i,m talking about taking with me if i only had 3 to choose are for diagnosing not for repairing.......with those 3 items you can diagnose almost anything on a gas or elec. cart and if i could carry a forth it would be a compression gage........not sure i could diagnose with a pair of needlenose and a screwdriver........but i don,t go anywhere without my multi tool so i,m cheating a little bit....................my voltage meter is capable of reading rpms and tempratures and a few other things your basic meter won,t do and that is by far the most important tool for elec. and even gas a good decent voltage meter..................................
