Take a look at the picture with the stud location.
In looking at the diagram it differs from what I currenlty have.

Top stud - black wire - will go to the F&R switch currently attached
middle stud - black wire will go to what
right stud - red wire will go to battery #6 - ????
bottom stud - white wire attches to soelnoid #5 - currenlty attached

just want to make sure I make proper connections.

In the diagram the bottom wire coming out of the motor stops what is that attaching to??

Soory if I am asking too many questions, I have no experience wiht these things.

Can you try to take a fine wire brush or light sand paper and find some kind of markings next to those terminals? I am pretty sure they are there..... they have been on all the ones I have worked on Then we can talk about A1 to here and F2 to there? If I had an old one apart in the yard I would ID them for you from the pic but, I don't ....

In the diagram it has battery #6 on the driver side and #1 on the passenger. I am assuming this does not matter, just as long as black goes to #1 and red goes to #6.

Also, There are a few extra pieces in the diagram that I dont have.
1. speed switch limit switches
2. F&R limit switch

Do I need these?

The important thing is that you use proper golf cart battery cables to tightly connect the 6 batteries in series (pos to neg) from one end of the string to the other when you have done this check the pack voltage with your voltmeter. Verify you have done this correctly and have over 36v present. Then carefully connect the black cable to the neg end post and then just touch the red cable to the open pos post... If it sparks you do not want to connect until you find the cause...... Once you have power... we can evaluate the system and see about all those limit switches and solenoids. I highly recommend you put the cart on jack stands while doing this to avoid injury if it were to move unexpectedly. And so we can get you to listen for all 5 solenoids clicking thru the gas peddle travel ....

If when you go to connect the red cable, there is a spark at the battery, then something is not right, because there should be no "continuity" in the system unless the key is on, and pedal is pressed. If it sparks, that means something is probably "on" and drawing current, and you won't want to connect the wire until you are sure what is going on, or you risk burning something up or having the cart start running when you don't want it to.
