yes the pot is asumed original The factory resistor is still in place. it reads 4.66k ohms. however there is no inline resistor going to the short set of black and white wires that was originally wired to the controller, it just comes straight off the pot.

my wife said it ran intermittently for 2 days when I got back in town to check it ran once, then quit so I ran all the checks I found on this forum found the pot over by 2k ohms and controller checks bad.

FWIW, I believe BU uses Navitas for their custom controllers. At least they used to.

The pot has no resister in the wires. They only send a ohms signal to the controller to referance how much voltage has to be supplied to make it run a certain speed.
The resister's I speak of should be on the selonoid terminals and the factory controller had a resister on it also. The diode is got to have the silver band towards + of battery lead.

the diode is as you say however there were no resistors on the solenoid when I upgraded it to heavy duty version and the controller which I had assumed was origianal had no resistors. one thing of note The original controller was larger than the replacement. I was assured from Buggies unlimeted it was correct replacement for 0-5k.

They sent you a 275amp controller and you have a 400amp I bet. Can you post some pictures of the cart and controller?

I was wanting battery compartment pictures and such.
Nice cart though. You don't have any extra batteries hooked to it right?
