Default rxv motor brake install

I'm installing a new motor brake on an 2010 rxv. I first got a new motor for this cart as I was told it was bad. When installing the old brake it did not line up with the three holes. I finally wedged it up enough to start all three bolts then slid it into place. Once I installed the unit as a whole it worked for about 2 minutes before I could smell something burning and it start to slow. It was the old motor brake I guessed it had failed and been the reason the previous motor burned out. (customer driving it with sticking brake). I now have a new brake and for the life of me can not get the holes to line up properly. Is there a trick to doing it with the motor already installed in car or should I pull the motor and try as I did the stock brake?

There are several threads that thoroughly cover installing rxv brake. Do a little searching with the search bar at the top right of this page. And be sure to not overtighten the brake bolts.

You are correct with some digging I have found some other threads. It seems you are the one giving the most credible info in all of them. I see to align properly or time. You must put cart in tow and switch to neutral. Will this help me with aligning the the bolt holes?

How can you tell if the solenoid is causing the lock up issue or key switch?

From what I am reading this could be whats causing the autobrake problem from the get.

Well, I have yet to see a failed keyswitch as the cause of brake problems. But it is very often blamed.

Only the very earliest solenoid was a source of problems. (It was a tiny little White/Rogers). Look at your solenoid, if it is a Trombetta, it's likely NOT bad. Another way to identify is "does my solenoid have 4 threaded terminals on it (Trombetta), or only 2 (white/Rogers)?"

thanks cg tech after following your proper install instruction I got this cart working perfectly. All issues were a result of me rushing the process on install and not following proper procedure.

Glad it's fixed, and glad no damage done by hasty install.
