Default Early 60ís EzGo

I recently acquired an electric ezgo from an uncle that passed. Iíd like to restore it but Iím needing some direction. My best guess is itís 1962-1964 and Iím unsure of the model. Iíd like to find a manual for it and some direction/suggestions to find parts. It has a 36V motor that works however, Iím not sure if it works properly. Iíd like to use lithium batteries when finished. My experience is with gas carts and I know very little about electrics. Due to the condition this is going to be a substantial project but Iím in no hurry to complete. Any help is greatly appreciated.

All of these old carts were basically set up the exact same way: A battery pack, a set of resistors, and a bunch of solenoids that all come together for speed control. For the most part, all "resistor" carts have the same basic wiring configurations. Post up as you go along. I am confident that we'll be able to walk you through whatever you find.

You're probably going to have more money in it than you'll ever get out of it so plan on keeping and enjoying it. That's a project for sure! Have fun, parts may be hard to find.

I restore old carts as a hobby and you are correct on a lot of accounts. Indeed, if anyone is planning on restoring and selling these for profit, good luck to you. I might be able to sell some of my carts for more than the cost of the materials needed to get them restored. Factor in time, though, and it's not even close.

Parts availability may initially look bleak but it's actually ok. You just have to be willing to get creative and adapt things beyond their intended use. IE, retrofit parts from other carts and such. Again, these old electric carts all operated on the same basic principals. As such, it's not overly difficult to swap parts between them. Basic metal fabrication skills and a welder sure makes things easier.

Looks pretty solid. I have seen much newer carts in worse shape.

First thing I would do is evaluate the condition of the frame and what it would take to do any needed repairs before I spent money on anything else.
