Default 1986 ez-go very little power

I just bought a 1986 ez go for 100 bucks, the age of the batteries is a mystery. i have checked them across and have 34 to 35 volt. I understand i may need new batteries, just wondering where else i should check before dropping five hundred on a set. Any advice would be great.

Welcome...If it is runs but just slowly, you need new batteries and new wires, 4 gag. Resister carts are pretty simple. Look under at the coils to see that non are broken.
good luck

Why are you ordering all that other stuff? Sounds like you need batteries first...

86 was only a 2 horse motor, so don't try to compare to a newer cart speed wise. Also with a resistor car, you can only go to about a 4 horse motor before you need to start to play wth the resistors so that the car accelerates smoothly. Figure out your game plan, then purchase the parts you need.

Well, if your gonna do that, then save your knuckles and some frustration and buy complete boards. They sell complete speed boards with new contacts, wiper arm, solenoid...etc for less than 150 and you can get a new board with resister coils for another 70 bucks. The boards are probably pretty brittle with age so trying to salvage parts off them is gonna be hard on the knuckles. Another option is converting to a stock Controller cart. It won't get you more speed, just longer run time and the ability to upgrade later on to more expensive parts. It all depends on what you want to do with the cart. You have a good blank slate now, so plan wisely or you will be buying parts twice.
