Default Newbie needs help with a 1988 ezgo

Hi Guy's!

I'm new to the cart scene, I just bought a 1988 ezgo gas. Can anyone tell me what model it is? Here is what was on the plate:

EZ GO Tex Tron
Serial No. 489654
Manuf. Code - H0888

Is there an online link to a service manual or parts manual for my cart?
The cart has sat for a long time and doesn't run. I jumped the start and it turns the engine over and I had 110psi. compression. I can't get any power through the forward/reverse switch. I know the accelerator switch is bad because it sticks in the closed position. Can anyone give me some pointers as to where to start tracking down the wiring issues?

I also need some parts:
Service Manual
Complete Driven Clutch
Fuel Tank
Front Black Plastic Cowl
Utility Bed

If you have any of these parts you would like to sell email or pm me.

BUILT FEB.8.1988
i know the 1988 is the year ezgo made alot of changes
(and what i've read it wasnt for the better)

110# compression is ok,
check your micro switch make sure its good.
clean the crap out of your f/r switch.

good luck. Dew

Well I put a new battery in the this thing, pulled the micro switch from the accelerator out and cleaned in and got it working. I reinstalled the switch and that fixed the electrical issues, and it STARTED! Now I have to find a gas tank, driven clutch, front cowl, and new tires. Then I am going to repaint it and recover the seats and she will be cherry!

Thanks guy's I will try to get some pictures up this weekend. I've got to get some parts ordered (Driven Clutch, Fuel Tank, Front Cowl, Service Manual, etc.) I haven't been able to come up with anything used so I guess I will have to buy new. I will probably place my order on Monday. I'm making my list of all the little items I need also.

Here are some pics. I forgot to take some when I got it home. I have already power washed it here, and taken some of it apart. The seat is already in the process of recovering. I have a new driven clutch and fuel tank ordered. I got it started so hopefully when I get the clutch and fuel tank I will be ablr to drive it. It's a little rough but it will look good when I am done with it. Let me know what you think. I got it for $200. Probably a little high for what it is but not to bad.
