Default Mixed aged battery replacement position?

Okay, here's the story. I bought a cart to flip. 2011 CC Precedent.

The batteries are 8 volt and 3 were dated March 2014 and the other 3 were dated August 2014. It appears that the previous owner had changed the batteries with two different sets, possibly at different times. I don't know the history.

After MUCH work I determined that the March 2014 batteries will not hold a charge, and only will charge up to about 60-70%. The August 2014 batteries are in excellent condition.

The person buying the cart from me is agreeable to having 3 new batteries, along with the 3 old batteries since the deal is too good to pass up.

The question is: What position should I put the old and new batteries? Half on one side, half on the other? Mix them up? Does it matter?

Thank you!

Makes no difference where you put them. They are all in series. The new ones will soon be only as good as the old ones.

shame to put only 3 new in with 3 old . maybe get with the buyer to put in 3 new at the same time (cause the deal was so good) and he starts off with a new pack for half price.

Agree 100 % I'd not mix new with batteries of questionable 2 year history. Better to perhaps find 3 used battery if price is major concern.

Fortunately the 3 batteries that are staying test fine on all counts. It will be a mixed bag for sure.

Do as you wish. You asked for advise and received it even if it was not the answer to the question you asked...

As commented by V_A "Makes no difference where you put them. They are all in series. The new ones will soon be only as good as the old ones."
