Default 6 volt to 12 volt battery change over

Hey Scotty if you are online...or anyone...

Have a 84 club car (has 5 solenoids)...I need batteries bad but its going to be a month or so before I can get them...However I have 3 12volt deepcycle/marine batteries that are in good shape...

I know you are going to say I want get the preformance or they want last as long but its just temporary....

I am going to assume I hook them up the same way as the 6 volt...positive to negative. ..Is there anything else I need to change or do?....

Can I still use my charger to charge the 12 volt batteries????

Thanks
Dont fuss Scotty...its temporary....
Bill

Im not ScootyB BUT you can try using the marine batterys? I wouldn't bother with it but if you really cant afford batterys now?? It will mean possibly making up some special battery cables that will be of no usage afterwards ( MONEY LOST )?
I assume that your cart is set up as a 36 volt unit, and if you connect the 12 volt batterys correctly you would have a correct 36 volts to all factory parts.
Your charger should work as long as it see's 36 volts total?

Thanks Old Mec and yes its the 36 volt system....The only add-on I have are front lights which are 12 volt anyway....I will hook that to one battery rather than to the two 6 volts...and will hook the charger wire just like it is with the 6 volts....dont remember which terminal + or - its on but will look....
Other than that everything should be ok...right....

Thanks
Bill

THe charger was made for 18 cells and now you have 9 so it may tend to cook the 12v..... check their temp (if you can) before and during charging. A rise of more than 10 degrees could indicate damage.

SCOTTYB is correct, I had forgotten about the higher temps involved with 36 volt charger over a 12 volt charger? OLD AGE I GUESS!
When I answered you there was something in the back of this old brain that said "I'M FORGETTING SOMETHING" good catch ScottyB THANK YOU.
