Arin, I think I may have over compensated but you should be able to find one that will work. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the help.

OK took a look at the pics, from what I am seeing the only thing you need to do is take the black cable that is on the solenoid and put the other end on the second pin of the swipe board. the same pin that has the #1 cable on it. (i noticed that the other cables to the coils were labeled 3 and 4 so i am assuming.) I would think about putting on the back side of the board, that way the pins are all level on the front where they swipe. they only other connection you need to do is on the coil at the opposite end where cable #4 connects to the end of the coil pack. connect on end there and the other on the FNR switch @ the 6 o'clock position. the diagram should show you the rest of the connections. it looks like the pins you have are pretty clean. If you are going to do this, I would look at upgrading the cables to 4 or 2 gauge at least for better reliability and power delivery. also what I would do if it were me is to shorten up the excess cable length on the wires going to the micro switches and the back up buzzer.

Hope that helps. if you need more let me know.

if you get a chance, take a look at my 2 builds. they may give you some help and tips.

Okay, I have something wrong but what?
It goes to high speed as soon as it comes off dead spot. It declines in speed as the speed lever moves farther back from the dead spot.

It comes on with or without the key.

Hey but at least it comes on, huh?

I'm already uploaded pics to my album and will upload pics to my photo bucket shortly. http://s1229.photobucket.com/user/Gary_Crain/profile/
HELP!!!

Gary. you are off by one pin.



In this pic you have the have the cable on pin 2. go to the right one more. that will fix the full speed then slow down. it should build speed all the way across.

let me check the key thing.


Oh BTW saw some of the other pics on photo bucket, Sucks what happened to the Plymouth! Were you able to fix it or was it a total loss?

Okay I'll move it one to the right but isn't that the dead pin? To late to do it tonight but I'll let you know how that works out tomorrow. Almost ready to put primer and then paint on the body. I had some candy apple red left over and that's what will go on the body probably next week.
You're right about the Plymouth it was a total loss. It was the first cruz night of the year and we didn't even make it half way. My wife cried like a baby! Me too almost. The insurance finally paid off and we bought another one. The yellow one that's also on the sight. It was kind of a dog with a 305 motor so I put a 412 cu in small block in it and used it last summer. I am almost ready to start putting paint on the car (hate that yellow). I'll post some other pics on photo bucket to show you how torn down the car is.

it is. but that is how they have it wired. not quite sure why. mine is that way too. I know the EZ GO I am working on is set up like yours is now but it doesn't go full speed.verify that the coils are connected like they were in the pic and you don't have anything jumping power past the coils. To be safe make sure you have this thing on jack stand before you put power to it incase anything goofy were to happen.

As far as the Plymouth it does suck. any idea what caused the fire? were you able to save anything from it? the wheels and suspension would have been cool for the new one.

I am interested to see how it looks now. I love anything mechanical esp. hot rods, custom and trucks.!
