Default Need 1981 club car 36 volt forward and reverse switch pn#

I'm restoring an 81 electric club car, so far finding part numbers had been easy- I'm now into 6 new t105 batteries / fully charged and 5 new quality solonids, new key switch, new micro switch, new wires, , and now I'm ready to ride- around the yard one time - ran like new then parked it.. My 35 year battery charger says incomplete when trying charge--- batteries show 38 volts on this 36 volt cart-. Tried to go for a ride the next day selected reverse the buzzer buzzed - then sparked and smoked a little- now no reverse and no forward. 100 websites selling 83and +, where or how do I get my hands on a forward reverse switch for this 81 club car /electric.. are there any out there or any available ones that I could rework to fit and operate correctly. Thanks for reading.

I've got several switches in a box but I have no idea what they fit. I'll try to look at them today.

Well, it is all about choices....

To the original poster, we are taking about the terminal labeled "1/2 throttle" that it is used to provide the positive power for reverse.

The OEM wiring has that cable going to the battery post that provides +18v as measured from pack negative (approx half the forward speed).

If You want more speed on reverse, You can wire that terminal to the +24v, +30v or pack positive battery post.

If You decide You want the same speed forward and reverse (pack voltage), You can also put a jumper between the 2 bottom terminals of the FNR and run a single cable to pack positive battery post.

Its been awhile since I looked through my stuff. The box that I thought were F/R switches were 2 prong charger receptacles. You know what they say about the second thing to go. LOL!
