Default Aquired a an old cart

I recently aquired a a beat up old club car. I want to work on this with my son as a project. I know almost nothing about them. The serial number plate from what I can gather below on the right under the dash is missing. Is there a way to tell the model so I can start aquiring parts? I know it will require a 6-6 volt batteries. To get it going is worth just buying reconditioned batteries? All wiring seems to be intact. Is there a way to test the motor before spending money on this. I really have no clue where to start. Any help is appreciated!

We need to identify the cart can you post pics of it?
1. OK, is it fiberglass or plastic
2. Does it have resistor coils or 5 solenoids behind the batteries?
3. The motors almost NEVER go bad

Scotty B, Thanks. From what I can tell it is fiberglass. It appears to have 5 solenoids in connection by 4 small bracket that are attached to 3 coils. Does this make sense.
I will try and post some pictures. Can you test the motor before buying the batteries?
Where can I find a diagram of how to series the batteries.

It looks good
Those motors RARELY go bad ... probably no need to test it.
Here is a wiring diagram for the cart with the battery cableing as well. It is marked '81-85 ( prolly should read 79-87) Find it here in the stickies

Electric Club Car wiring diagrams

Put the cart on jack stands to test and check to see if you hear ALL 5 solenoids click when you press the gas......

I printed the diagram. Any idea where I can find the information that coordinates with the numbers that are called out on the diagram? I want to make sure I am hooking everything up right. The stud coming out of my motor have a different pattern to the one in the diagram. Thanks

the motor studs should be clearly marked A1, A2 and S or F 1&2. There is no ledger to the diagram; what # are you concerned about?
