this is long and i know very little and need help
so i had an old electric bike that i rode for a year, a crystalyte front hub deal with a 36v ni-mh battery . anyway the front hub partially seized (sounds crunchty like broke magnets) and i thought i rather than trying to fix, id just get a new wheel/controller and use my battery.
so i bought this conversion kit from a shipping company (long story), damaged box so the price was ok i thought ($100). included the 26" wheel and hub, controller, throttle, brakes but no battery which is fine as i have one.
all good so far. it arrives, all there as far as i can tell but 2 issues. no paperwork or instructions at all and no labels on anything (except the wheel hub BBS) to indicate what it even is so i cant even look up what to do. so im blind on this
now im a bit mechanical and researched some but i cant find much.
so i hook up the plugs about the only way theyll go, but no luck
+- from the battery seem straight forward
plugs to the hub seem pretty straight forward
throttle plugs in to the 3 wire plug (power,signal ground?) but which other 2? one will be voltage for the meter im guessing , the red female from the controller show same voltage as the battery (40) when hooked up. no other wire show any voltage
i read and it seems like there should be 5v from the red throttle wire but i cant get anything there
open the pouch, theres a ton more plugs tucked in there, likely for brakes, monitors, pa, etc ? likely a generic controller that is used on several things?
cant figure out the pic thing, hopefully these will open

anyway i need guidance. (there was a decent spark when i first hooked up power but cant recreate that either, hope i didnt fry something.)
