Default Z06 joins Team PQ!

Welcome to "The Lab" , let's see about getting this old Advanced DC Motor out of this '97 cart. I'm sure it hasn't been removed since the factory...

Label and remove the four cables, wrap my leather belt from my blue jeans around the thing, remove 3 bolts, and pray...


I got Sooooooo lucky with this old motor as it literally slid right off the splines and we pulled it out easily...

13 years of carbon and dirt...

After a few minutes of clean-up...

Comparison...

Don't forget the little rubber bumper inside the shaft of the old motor. If you stick some long nose pliers down in there and feel anything other than hard steel there is a bumper and it needs to get moved forward into the new motor. Before you slide it in place, dress the splines with anti-seize compound...

Didn't use the belt for the install, the PQ handle makes it unnecessary. Please observe proper technique when attaching the power cables, 2 hands, 2 wrenches...

Final terminal dressing...

Reassembled the cart, tested forward/reverse while it was still on the stands (just enough to prove it worked, NO HIGH SPEED SPINNING WITHOUT A LOAD), lowered it down, pushed it onto the gravel driveway. Hit the go pedal and flung loose gravel from both tires all over The Lab. Didn't get that pic because by the time I got back from the test ride my wife had swept it all up, LOL!

Let's take a little ride outside the campground on a country road...


Now I will admit this is not a scientific test as the road goes uphill and downhill, but I did hit a top speed of 33.6 mph during a 4.6 mile test ride. THAT'S FLYIN'! On the flattest ground I could find my old motor pulled 20 mph, new motor pulled 24 mph. Old motor uphill, 17.1 mph, new motor 21.1mph. The torque is VERY impressive, especially the mid-range torque. I can roll up on other carts that are flat out, hit the gas, and just leave them in the dust! THIS IS A VERY STRONG MOTOR!

I don't know the brand name (can is 90 miles away) but I got it at Wallyworld in the automotive section. It does not dry, ever. Seems I'm always dragging some out on a shirt sleeve or chamois.
