As the season for using the carts nears so does our completion date for this one of a kind electric Precedent!
We made some good progress on it this week.
Part of the SC Carts Torkster package is a 500 amp upgraded controller. Here you can see the controller mounting plate being prepped for the new HUGE controller!
With the controller mounted on the factory Club Car Precedent mounting plate we installed it back in the stock location.
Our customer is pulling out all the stops on this cart for performance. So we weren’t surprised when we requested AGM batteries for this cart. We went with the best Discover AGM batteries!
With the AGM batteries installed, you have one amazing maintenance free power pack! You can also see some of the various wires from the additional accessories that are yet to be ran and cleaned up. Also the factory center cover will be re installed to complete the clean look of this install.
Next we started in on the dash of this cart. It will be a fairly simple and clean dash area. Here we have installed the battery level indicator. We have a feeling that this indicator will spend most of it’s life on full due to the combination of the AGM batteries and an SC Carts solar charging system.
Speaking of solar charging, we installed the solar charging brain safely out of the elements.
We then installed a brand new set of Monroe shock absorbers. This will keep the ride smooth!
Here you can see the new shocks installed, right next to that awesome SC Carts Torkster motor!
We then moved onto running the hydraulic lines into the pedal foot well. First we needed to drill a 2″ hole.
Then we ran the hydraulic brake lines through the front of the floor and attached them to the hydraulic master cylinder.
Next we installed the Club Car factory pedal assembly and connected the brake bracket. We will now have to install the brake fluid reservoir and then bleed the system.
While we were upfront doing the brakes, we installed the Precedent LED headlight.
These lights are crazy bright!
Since this cart is going to be used to haul people up and down to the boat, it only made sense to have an air compressor on it for all the boat toys. We chose the Viair compressor. This is a heavy duty compressor that will get the job done! Notice the aluminum plate in the picture.
We took that aluminum plate and fabricated a custom mounting saddle for the compressor.
Here you can see the custom compressor mounting bracket installed on the frame of the cart.
Here it is all installed. We will be relocating the on and off button to the outside body of the cart.
Well that’s another week all wrapped up! This cart is moving along a good clip now and will be completed shortly. We still have a couple other tricks up our sleeve for this awesome cart so make sure to come back next week!
