Default 84' Club Car solid state conversion project

I'm new to golf carts and recently purchased an 84 club car for $500 off Craigslist. It's got the old solid state resistor setup so after much research I decided to go with Scottyb's C54 conversion kit. While I'm at it, I'm also upgrading the motor and going from 36v to 48v batteries. Definitely a big project for me, but Scott has been super helpful over email.

The kit is currently in transit to me but I got going on the project last night. Removed batteries and solenoids....

It's a ten spline motor. Here are pics - they aren't great, let me know if you want me to take additional shots tonight. It runs well enough but it's obviously pretty old.

Yeah I'm totally psyched for this conversion project . Should be a completely different cart when everything is installed!

Hey Gainerman here's another pic of the motor.... Let me know if you are still interested.

While we're at it, does anyone want a 35-year old set of solenoids? Help me fund this project!

OK - got the conversion package and now getting into the build.

Removal of the old gas pedal assembly was straightforward and I working on installing the slick new pedal in the conversion kit. Using the template for the drill holes, it appears that if I line it up as described in the instructions, the pedal mount won't fit correctly (see pic). In order for it to fit, I had to move the template back (towards the driver's seat) by about an inch (see second pic). Hopefully this is OK? I don't see why this would create issues, but maybe I'm missing something.

Another question - how/where best to mount the solenoid and SW202 reverser?

I'm planning to mount the solenoid above the motor as shown in the pic. Is there a better place for it?

As for the SW202 I'm thinking of bolting it directly to below where the old F&R switch used to be, although I'd have to drill holes and insert bolts below the driver's seat. Is there a better way,? Maybe using the cool aluminum mount that came with the conversion kit?

I'm new and don't know how to "follow" a thread so this comment is for that.

I am planning on a similar build in the near future so I'm looking forward to seeing your progress!

The kit suggest you use the CU aluminum mount with the SW202 contactor in the location you have it in your picture. You'd have to drill 2 holes in the thick aluminum section you have it sitting on.

I would suggest not mounting it there though. I mounted mine in that location when I converted to solid state and the reversing contactor will get dirty and corroded in that area. Being that close to and below the level of the batteries will cause a lot of battery acid to fall onto it when cleaning batteries and any mud/dirt the front tires kick up.

I'd mount it next to where you plan on mounting the solenoid against the back wall of that aluminum plate (you won't be able to use the CU aluminum bracket by doing it this way). That should keep the solenoid and SW202 high and dry; plus it'll make your cable lengths a little shorter and neater too.

That makes a ton of sense. I hate having to dig down into the battery tray to access stuff. Plus, the acid/mud/etc is a pain.

By the way Scotty tells me I can move the go pedal back a bit to fit better. Easy enough.

Hand will try to post some pics tonight.
