Something is wrong with the steering...ANY IDEAS ?




SUPPOSIDLY newer batteries.. have not done anythig with these yet..


The charger. I sthis a trickle charger ?


I have no use for this rack as I do not golf....


Looks like this cart never came with a windshield...


Very big tires...

It may be the angle of the picture but it looks as tho you have a lot of toe in on the front tires?

You have a 1997 Electric EZGO TXT. 36v. The tow-in does look a little off. The TXT is the most popular cart in America. And my favorite. You have 6v Trojan T-105 batteries.

That unused arm on the passenger side spindle is for the factory tow bar, it has a rod that drops in that hole to steer the cart when being towed.. If your cart still had the stock front axle, there would be a mounting bracket welded in the center for the tow bar to attach to.. The unused tab on the spindle isn't hurting anything nor will it affect the operation of the cart..

It was good news to finally see the cart. I will attempt to bring it back to life Thursday. So far Ive been able to get a LOUD constant BEEEEP noise when I shift fwd/rev lever.. I gotta read the online manual !

Well that is good news about the arm.. But see that flimsey looking "c" bracket behind the towing arm where the steering attaches? .. Looks like a bent piece of sheet metal. Not very strong.. Does NOT look oem. Maybe a cheap liftjob ?
I should be able to adjust the toe in... I know its a stupid question, but these are NOT metric are they ?

It is a cheap lift kit... instead of using drop spindles they opted for a drop axle and used the factor spindles. Unfortunately, that meant they had to install those garbage adapters. you have 3 real choices...... install a long travel lift kit, return to the stock front axle and install drop spindles, or have someone fabricate better tie rod to spindle adapters.

I usually set my toe in on a lifted cart between 1/8 and 1/4 toe in front to rear.

Does it look like that little 4" "C" shaped adapter is the only thing they added to raise the front ? When I look in front & turn the tire by hand- I can see the flex in that "adapter" If I removed that "lift", I would return to stock height & the tires would rub-right ? Does it look like I have the right "oem" stuff remaining to install a better lift kit ? Thanks.. Bill
