Then eventually I can upgrade my motor when the stock motor dies. Is that right ?
They will run on both 36 and 48 volt. What kinda 48 volt charger did you get? All factory club car 48 volt chargers are designed to work with an on board computer and will not shut off automatically without one, unless it's the newer ERIC charger.

I'm not sure if that one is fully automatic or not. Maybe someone with more knowledge on that charger will chime in, but I think all 48 volt Club Car had OBC' S. Either way when you first use it keep it monitored.

Don't use that one for a 48v cart! Accu-Power chargers were fully automated and only for 36v golf carts that I know of. And looking at the picture, that is a 36v plug attached to that charger..... (The 48VDC you see on the back is what its capable of and needed to fully charge a pack. Just like Powerdrives will go to 60VDC)

If it is something different then we will hear it from someone.

And mgray you are correct on all the Powerdrive series (1, 2 & 3) chargers.

That is an old school Ferro-resonant charger, it will work but they are not the best for maintaining the pack.

I appreciate the advice ... This golf cart stuff seems like an expensive hobby. Sounds like I may be best served to sell the charger and drive it with 36 volts. I’m not trying to invest 2k + on a 1990 golf cart. I’m looking to upgrade on a budget. Seems like that is not gonna happen. I’d rather fix this cart up sell it and buy a new cart that is 48volts. Lol.... will this charger work on my current 36volt set up ?

OK, I'm sure Threewheelmotion is thoroughly confused - I know I am.

Nole is a great guy and usually offers excellent advice but in this case if Sergio says different to Nole, I think I'd believe Sergio.

You can see the "48v output" on the charger nameplate (2nd picture).

Club car never used a Ferro-Resonant 48v charger, as mentioned before, they used the much more advanced OBC charging system, but it would work.

The Ferro-Resonant is 1950's technology and has no algorithms or "programs" to adjust the charge, it is not a good choice for a primary charger.

Nole is correct it has a crows foot plug , usually found on a 36v charger
BUT it can be wired to a 48v cart
and Sergo is correct it is a 48v charger old school Ferro-resonant charger, it will work but they are not the best for maintaining the pack.

best to get a 48v smart charger
