Sun Classic made in Grandview Texas, odd solenoid question.

I've got a Sun Classic in, seems to be rare, made in Grandview Texas. Trying to get it going, seems to be ezgo parts except it has a solenoid connected to two lugs on the motor and controlled by a toggle switch. Anyone have a diagram or info?

If this a second solenoid it could be this, check this thread.

I see. I'll have to omit that when I rewire it.

Must be how the manufacture claimed 23 MPH.

I do not know for sure, but I bet that is correct.

I would have to see and examine it to know for sure.

Yes, I am almost positive that is a field shunt, essentially bypassing the field coil. It allows the motor to spin faster. If engaged when cart is stationary it will burn out the motor. It is not good when motor is running full speed either.

Neat looking little cart too, I like it.

It's a Barney Rebel Machine...


Hopefully the motor hasn't already been damaged from the shunt!

Yes Caddiemaster is correct that is a field shunt, if there is solder on the inside of the outer casing then there is motor damage. Shunts let the amps go very high which is bad for batteries, solenoids, wires and motors.

Hi, and you can always get that motor rebuilt for more speed and power.

That would make a neat little street cruiser.
