Default 1994 Charging Receptacle Problem

Hello EZ-GO guys. Have had a day long nightmare with a rectangle style (not the newer D plug) receptacle and plug from charger.

Installed a new plug into a working 36V charger. Would not click/charge. Tried it on another known working charger. Nothing. Replaced charging receptacle, (twice with used receptacles).

Found out would only make contact if I pressed firmly to one side against plug.

Are these things this problematic? Should I ditch all of this style and do something different? I have 2 more of these vintage to restore and don't want to go through this again.

All responses appreciated!

PS. Still nothing working.

Probably some wear in the housing. New sb50 connectors are like $6 and you should be able to use original surroundings.

It is my understanding that there are 2 versions of the SB50 plug, a gray and black version and they will not work with each other.

According to Anderson no problem.

I swear it seems like this is the case. It's like they are about 1/8th inch apart. Can't see inside of course.

Yea, they are Supposed to be compatible, but with so many chinese copies out there, we never know what we end up with when buying from eBay. In the original Anderson SB50 connectors, black and grey actually are interchangable.

I just went through this when I did my lithium conversion. I was in a hurry to get my stuff, and the only sb175 on amazon prime was a grey one. I needed it to mate to a red. No dice. Thereís 6 or 7 colors and they donít mix and match. Itís probably a good idea for designation purposes. The black is supposed to be interchangeable with any color.

Thanks guys. Guess I will start over and buy both. Really irritating. A 10 minute fix that screwed up a whole day. Now another week waiting for parts. And I have 2 chargers to reassemble. Dang shame, cart runs great and no way to charge it without "rigging" it.

Oh well. Live and learn. Never pictured this being a big issue.

Thanks to all of you for the input!
