Default Re: Ez-Go 400 ? found and bought.

Well here are some more detail photos.Only 6 soliniods. thank goodness
6 inch wheels on rear 8 inch on front.
front wheel is 3 lug,rears are 4.but they are very small studs,nothing like the more modern carts.
Wireing other than the purple paint is in surprizeingly good shape.
F1 f2 f3 and f4 wires I can easyly read from the motor and others are marked.
The motor has 6 lugs on it.
The body hinges up and out of the way.Which is great till it goes TO far back and you cant catch it!

That rear end setup is WAY cool!

The cart overall isn't too bad looking either, I'm digging this thread and hoping someone knows something about a six lug motor and gets you some info!

Well I did get the front wheel off yesterday and cut the tire off.
The wheel is being cleaned in the electrolysis bucket at the moment.Probably be painted by Monday and ready for tire.I have a 8 inch front tire that is not perfect but will work and hold air.
I am thinking the brakes must be between the motor and rear axle assembly.This could explain it not rolling easy if they are froze up.The wheels turn opposite each other when you try to push..
I was wondering is there a serial number plate anywhere on this thing? I cant find it if there is.Don't really know where to look on 1 this old.
Motor test after I make sure the brakes are freed up is the next goal after a front tire is ready and the front bearings are packed.

Brake is likely on the drive shaft between the motor and rear end if this thing truly is an EZGO That was common for them - they did that even up into the Marathons. I haven't a clue on serial plates, other than to crawl all over it and give it a good inspection.

Hope the motor turns when you test it, and if not I'm not sure what type of motor would fit in its place, you'd have to pull it and see what type of output shaft it has. That might just be a chore on a cart of that age - I've had mid 90s model carts give me such a terrible fit that I had to pull the whole rear end out to pull the motor!

Edit: found ONE picture of a cart that looks like this one, and the one in the picture is indeed a Model 400. No year listed, simply called "Very Early EZGO Model 400"

EZ400c-fntqtr2-300ss1.jpg

This particular cart is in EZGO's Augusta Branch Office. The photo came from: http://www.golfcarcatalog.com/golf-c...museum-e-z-go/

Some good info I've used on on old carts, particularly a Cushman I once worked on, and possibly some wiring info you can use, comes from this site: http://www.vintagegolfcartparts.com/...g=cat&ref=ezgo - The purple links on this page take you to some wiring and some serial info that may be of help to you.

Well that is the best match so far sir!
Wow,good research as I have hunted for hours.
The ez-go symbol on mine is a chrome thing that is shaped with wings per say,I notice this 1 is rectangle like the newer 1's.Hum,so that would make mine a b or a most likely!
Older.
Thank you very much for your help.
I was starting to wonder if Ez-go had disowned this thing

Scratching my head.
The front wheel is 8 inch,so I can get a tire easy for it.The rears are 6 inch.I dont see 6 inch listed anywhere.
So when I get to that point,where do you get 6 inch tires for these?
Also,am I seeing things are is the white 1 in the picture have all 6 inch wheels?

Just type in 6" turf tire on ebay or visit a local tractor supply. Riding lawnmowers use 6" tires all the time.
