What'd you give for it Jake? If you don't mind me asking

You didn't do bad at all. Was it used at all previously?

Here are some pics of this new charger. It's a Lester E-Series II, model 28080. It's nice to be able to plug it in and not have to worry...

Got the cart out the other day for my cousins to cruise around the neighborhood. We had a ball. Cart is running great, even with the very primitive 60's jerky drive system. One of these days, I may upgrade the old girl to solid state.

So I want to get my preliminary solid state conversion thoughts 'on paper'. I want to go to solid state. As much as I would love to simply buy one of Scotty's kits, I just don't have the funds for that. I'm going to keep this simple, keeping the 6 gauge wiring and stock motor.

So here's what I think I'll need:

-Curtis 225 amp 36v series controller
-Potentiometer that matches controller input
-Carts Unlimited reversing contractor for F/R

Does anyone see any flaws in my thinking here, am I missing anything? It's time to bring this old girl into the 21st century, getting rid of the clunky operation and toaster oven parts.

A Curtis 1204-027 controller is headed my way. Let the conversion begin!
