Happy Independence Day. Really? Independent from what?

I wanted to wait until after everyone celebrated the Fourth of July before I typed these thoughts of mine concerning the celebration of our Nation’s “independence”. I never say “Happy Independence Day” to anyone anymore prior to the 4th of July. When I was in a younger man's clothes, I used to. I think the holiday reference is archaic, historic and hypocritical at best. “How dare you”, you might quickly respond to this statement. But hear me out for a moment. Loan me your ears (I’ll give them back when we’re done:0) ) as you think about and contemplate what I am going to suggest in the next few moments together over the paragraphs we will share.

Customizing Ezgo Txt Series Carts Is Not Such A Good Idea. Melted FNR Switch Results.

Customizing Ezgo Txt Series Carts Is Not Such A Good Idea. How do I know? What makes me the expert to say such a thing? I don’t proclaim to be “an expert” for we all know an “ex”, well is just that and a spurt is a far comparison to a stream! However, I do own a golf cart dealership.

It is my experience and opinion based on real golf cart service that the two worst possible golf carts that anyone can do body lifts with large wheels and tires are any of the Club Car resistor and or v-glide, pre controller years and any of the Ezgo series carts. Don’t misunderstand me, they are good golf carts when they are used for what they were designed for. We need to be fair with Club Car and Ezgo. Two people with two golf club bags playing two rounds of golf prior to charging the batteries. That’s it! Nothing more and nothing less.

Ezgo Rxv Electric Brake Wiring Harness Repair Connector. Many of the Rxv's that have a few years wear and tear on them are having intermittent electric brake failures. These failures are either the brake fails to apply or it will not release. Many a good brake assemblies are replaced with new ones just to have the same problem. Not a cheap guess for the fix!!!!

Before replacing the brake you first need to be sure that your batteries are good, charged and up to par, no pun intended! Jack the rear of the Rxv golf cart up and place on safety support shop stands. Yes, use shop stands, remember safety first will prevent catastrophes later!!!

How Do I Lubricate The Front End of My Ezgo Txt Golf Cart?

How Do I Lubricate The Front End of My Ezgo Txt Golf Cart?

How Do I Lubricate The Front End of My Ezgo Txt Golf Cart? That’s a question we are asked from time to time at our dealership. Depending on your year model there are not very many lubrication points for anyone to lubricate. If your Txt is a year model from 1994 to roughly 2001 then you could have as many as five places to lubricate which all are within the steering box to tie rod ends. There is a zerx fitting at the main pivot point of the steering box at the center. And the rest of the zerx fittings are very visible on the tie rod ends.
