After resurrecting the old buggy , painting , new bats, rebuilding motor, etc. we are now trying to find an accelerator spring and a decent photo to show how it is installed . Can anyone help?

Well, we have it all working now. A few little things to do but overall the little guy looks and runs good.

Looks good! I restored my 74 DE last year and now I am having an issue of the time delay shorting out. Iíve gone through 2 of them now. $50 a pop gets kinda pricey. Iíve triple checked all my wiring and voltages but canít figure it out. The original tube was busted when I got it and while restoring I went with the solid state delay replacement. Iím afraid all the money I spent to get it looking cherry has gone to waste. Thinking about saying screw it and start saving up to do a full solid state conversion. Itís more efficient but I love the look of originality.

Looks very good. I get the part about the solid state conversion. I guess the idea of originality left when we painted them. Still , listening to the solenoids clicking in makes for a lot of conversation.

Thanks Mooncarter
My brother in-law and I have done most of the work on it. We have it at a campground and last week we were there on vacation. Received a lot nice compliments from the folks there. We figured that a week there would shake out any issues it had and it did. There was a noise coming from the brakes, we thought, and couldn't get adjusted right. Turned out I had not tightened the lug nuts on one of the rear wheels. After tightening them, it ran well. It takes a while to get used to the solenoids controlling the speed and having the steering wheel offset . But we really like it , and so do the grandsons.

Don't you have the disc brake near the motor like tadub's above?

My 76 (four wheel) does.
