Default 1987 EZGO wirng diagram

Hey everyone, I am new to the golf cart world and I need some help. I picked up a 1987 EZ GO Textron the other day and it was all torn apart. It was an old gofl cart at work that they were getting rid of so they let me have itI got most of it back together but on the "wiper board" there are 4 contactors that go to the coils but there is one red wire at the bottom( I would assume is a positive wire) that I cant figure out where it goes. It runs from the Forward, Neutral, reverse switch to a solenoid and then to a switch at the bottom of the "wiper board" and then on the other side of the wiper board is a red wire that I have no clue where it goes. Every diagram I look at only has the 4 wires that go to the coils. Could anyone help me on as to where this wire would go? Thanks in advance.

Do you have face book? If so you can checkout my cart page and I have the pictures of what you need with instructions and where the wires and cables go for the Ezgo resistor carts.
Nothing hooks to the first stud on the swiper board it's for the swiper to rest on when your foot isn't on the gas pedal.
Click on the link and then click on the pictures to read about each one.

Does it have an actual "stud"? Built in spare, but I'm surprised they didn't opt to save a nickle and not have one there.

Oops, highliting and making text red and bold doesn't work on your post.

Apparently you haven't ever worked on one so here is your answer. The post is for the swipper if it wasn't there it would never move. The swiper is spring loaded so if the first stud isn't in place it just would hit the side of the first stud and maybe go maybe not. It has to have the first to rest on to keep the spring load on it.

I just figured they're so cheap they could use nylon instead of copper, but I'm sure that would affect manufacturing costs, one more part to keep up with, two different parts in assembly, etc.

Yeah, I've never seen one before, not up close and personal anyway. I guess I imagined it would be like a FNR; with the studs recessed.

My 1970 Duster had a nylon gear on the end of the distributor. It was sacrificial, to prevent stripping the camshaft. It may not have been nylon, but that's what they called it when mine stripped out in high school, back in the 70s.

As to studs? Dunno. I got a boxa nylon bolts and nuts, up to 1/2". Just thinkin' out loud about how far most manufacturers go to save a buck. A lotta newer cars don't even have a key hole on the passenger door anymore.

My rasing came from when copper was king! The biggest copper mine in the world at the time put dinner on my little plate (back in the day, the mine is closed down now).
