Default Re: Older Club Car 36-48v conversion?

Alright then. So, CTD mentioned a pretty hefty list to upgrade to 48v. Aside from the batteries, cables and charger, what is the bare minimum to do the conversion?

Granted, I'm counting on a controller, regardless of upgrading or not.

Also, I can get T-105's local for $102 a piece.

88 club car ds 36v components , switches, solenoids , etc..., will not take the 48v current
6v T-105s are a good battery, they are the low end trojan , T-605 are the best

At this point, I think I'll stick with the 36v setup, even though its design is fairly antiquated.

I think by the time I do a conversion worth the time and $$.. it would be way better to start ahead of the game with a newer model.

So, with that in mind, what controller should I start shopping for.

There is a good chance I'll flip this one before too long, is it possible to find less expensive batteries without sacrificing all the quality?

The battery shop I mentioned before does reconditioned batteries that I've had good experiences with in the past, but that was always automotive.

i have bad news for you
you do not have a 1988 cart you have a 81~85 cart

look for a tag under the dash





how to read serial number


your cart has a solenoid and resistor group not a controller



here is your wiring diagram

Copy that. 105's it is.

So, I'm stubborn. What about a motor?

And will the DS lift kits still work? If I understand right, the frame and suspension is the same?
I could probably fab something up, but for the $$ for material and time, it would just be easier to buy a bolt-on..
