Default NEW PROJECT Cart

I will have a new project to work on shortly....something to keep me busy. Its not my cart, but a fun project none the less. My nephew got a 1999 DCS for the right price...FREE!! ya can't beat that....and believe it or not, its always been GARAGE KEPT! He called me about a week ago and sent me a few pictures and ask if I thought this cart was a good candidate for a rebuild and turn it into Deer Lease transport (little or no hills and driven on established dirt roads/trails. And in the off season, he can run the roads near his home to get back and forth to the water to go fishing vs. having to walk. He lives about 100 miles away....and will be trailering it to my house in the next few weeks so I can get started on it. THEN I will be keeping everyone updated in the build thread. Here are a few pictures he sent taken with his phone. oh....and he is going to make the jump from 36v to 48v inj thye process.

The TOTAL UPGRADE Plan:
1. Controller: ALLTRAX XCT500DCS Kit (includes ALLTRAX XCT500DCS, 400 amp Super Duty Solenoid, flex mount, controller fan, and 2 Ga. cable set and Battery Meter w/ mounting plate)
2. Battery Charger: DPI CHARGER
3. Motor: Admiral MOT-B2 High Torque Motor
4. 12v Converter
5. 6 Circuit Fuse Panel
6. 21” LED Light Bar
7. Fender Flairs
8. 6” Axle Lift Kit
9. 12" BLADE Machined/ Black Wheels and 23x10.5-12" All Terrain Tires
10. Windshield (folding 2-piece)
11. Black Seat Covers (Front & Rear)
12. New Set of Batteries (6-8v)
13. Brake Job
14. Complete Camo Paint Job

Will be a very capable setup! Do you need the HD F/R EZ585L?

I have the same question. DCS is sepex. Maybe convert it to a rocker switch like the PDS or the Club Car rocker mounted by your knee like the reversing contactot conversion.

Convert DCS to PDS?

according to Scotty and the cartsunlimited website.....I guess that if you are building a DCS. I'm a SERIES guy....and I its my first go around at a sepex cart....just trying to do it by the numbers. I'm sure scotty might chime in sooner or later.

Not to mention.....this is my first stab at the list of parts as I see it. Based on what my nephew wants and needs his cart to be able to do....and do it reliably. That is the real bottom like to it all.

Try and download a DCS wiring diagram. I'm a series guy as well, but if the FNR is simply a lever operated set of microswitches, I'd just leave them as is. I actually like not having to reach forward to the dash, but that's personal preference.

well you didn't NEED to do anything, and neither did I....but I personally would feel a lot better with Scotty's HD F&R in they cart, seeing as how we are going to be putting more stress/strain on the drive system. leaving the stock F&R in the system makes it the weak link to break out in the middle of the woods during a hunting trip.

I already have the diagram....and in the case of the DCS, I believe its an actual F&R and DCS F&R looks like, and its mounted right behind the lever by your knee. Anyway.....I will know better once I get the cart to my house and take a lot closer look.

BUT looking at the site....y'all are right. The EZ585L won't be needed.

DCS Troubleshooting

Looks like 2 microswitches. Nothing HD would change, unless I'm missing something.

From the wiring diagram, I see no reason any SPDT three position switch wouldn't work, though I'd go with marine grade, for corrosion protection. I'd put mine where the lever is, but there's no reason you can't move it to the dash.

At least that's what I'm seeing. There may have been more than one version of DCS?
