just outside Savannah GA..

I tried interstate batterys, they have what they call refurbished batterys for 55. but all they do is top them of with water and charge them.. I would of thought refurbished would of ment cleaned and fresh acid.

Hell I would love to find them for $40 that would be awesome, but I dont think i will get lucky and be able to.

The refurb interstates here are usually batteries that didn't sell within 6mos that are topped up charged and discounted.

Your cart was made between 1975 and 1980. Does the cart have four or five solenoids? Do not mix different battery voltages. You will just be wasting money. Keep all the batteries 6 volt. As for the upgrade, spending all that money to covert to a 48 volt cart is going to be very expensive not to mention all the time. You will need (6) eight volt batteries which will cost even more than the 6 volt batteries, not to mention the controller, wiring, solenoid and potentiometer. And after that hoping the motor will hold up.
Just installing new batteries will provide a performance boost.

I'm in NM I bought a refurb pack of interstates for 240. A few weeks ago. So far so good. Dates don't match but they are all less than 1 yr since date of manufacture. Supplier guarantees for 2 years.

i read someplace that someone put a newer front end in there pre 80 caroche cart
can anyone confirm this, I found a guy down the road from me sells parts and he has a crap load of carts. So was thinking it might be easer to buy a newer front end to do a lift with.
