Yeah free batteries but, have you priced a 72 volt controller and solenoid lately? OUCH !

Thanks guys for your input its a 1983. I have pretty much rebuilt cleaned fixed everything on it except for rebuilding the rear end which i hope i dont need to get into. As far as the batteries go i will do the 48v it will be more reliable and also in my budget. I also have a buddy who is a head grounds keeper and is getting me a 48v charger. So am i correct in thinking i just need a controller, heavy duty f&r switch. I can hold off on the pb-6 thats a motor correct? Thanks pistonhead, the paint was left over from a 68 beetle we did. In the one pic u can see our shop logo under the clear as well.

Okay Not sure if you have an '83 5 solenoid cart or you have an '88 CC resistor cart and wanting to go from 36 to 48v correct? Either way the process is about the same.

First about the charger..... you do NOT want a 48v Club Car charger. It will only work with a 48v factory CC due to the On board computer which is the chartger's brain being mounted in the cart.... so these dhargers are not good for these upgrades.

Look for a Yamaha or Lester or even one of the new types.
The PB-6 is a Curtis model type of throttle indicator or positioner. Technically it is a potentiometer or like a rheostat for the Volume Control on your radio but, it is used for controlling speed on an electric motor. Curtis is the premier manufacture IMO I have used the Chinese copy and it does not compare.....

You will be replacing the v-glide and the resistor coil pack with a pb-6 and controller respectively. You will need both of these things and they must be matched ...... I suggest you choose the 0-5K throttle indicator and controller as opposed to the harder to find 5k-0 CC type. You will be making a complete system so you do not need a CC throttle or controller..... Just make sure whatever you get is matched so they work together....Does that make sense?

You will also need a good quality 48v solenoid preferably one with silver contacts for long life. Use the recomended resistors, diodes, and main battery pack fuse to protect your investment.....Here are some pics from a '89 CC conversion.
