Just acquired a 1982 Club Car, runs but not very responsive. Checked batteries with SG good on two batteries and fair on the other four...When accelerating, there is a slight hesitation then goes with a very slight "clunck". Any help, would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum--"Good and/or Fair" sounds like a reason for a problem. Start by checking ages of the Batteries. If Trojan look on Neg pad letter A is Jan., etc and number is year, Also get better readings on each after a charge (wait 30 minutes to check). Different and low readings on 4 batteries will hesitate and probably "clunck" every time.

Trout-Check each cell of each battery. I suggest you write the readings down for record. Also, it is best to pick up a volt meter for accurate readings. Inexpensive ones are available at Harbor Freight and chain auto parts stores. Bring the readings back to the forum for better answers.

Will three 12 volt deep cycle batteries be as efficient as six 6 volt batteries? How will it affect endurance, power or speed?

6-6volt will have a lot longer run time than 3-12s. Simple rule of thumb is more lead = more run time. The system only knows it has 36v not how many batteries you have. Don't consider auto type replacements even though initial cost is less. Just because they are "deep cycle" they are not designed for Golf Cart use.They will last about 1/2 as long as Trojan batteries as an example. If you have future plans to juice up your cart for torque & speed, lifting, etc. spend the monsy for good batteries when necessary. A good middle for Trojan is the 605. Google Trojan and you can see the spec. comparisons. Also shop around your area dealers as there are deals offered every so often.
