77 Harley Golf Cart

At times it starts but most of the time all I get is a clicking at solenoid,Have bench tested starter and seems to be good,I switched solenoids with same results switched back same ,I'm guessing its working because it clicks when I hit foot feed If I leave it for a while sometimes it turns over but most of the time just the clicking,I also cleaned for/rev switch thinking a bad connection but didn't help Any ideas??

Have you had the battery "Load Tested"?? Lots of times the battery can be bad & show 12 volts on a voltmeter' but under operating load, they loose power... Make sure the connections are clean & tight @ the battery & solonoid & starter & all the grounds...For some reason, these carts like clean connections.... Good luck,,, Roger
