Question Wrong Motor Question

I recently purchased a 1996 cart that seems to work fine. I found out that the new motor the prevoius owner had installed is a 48 v motor installed in a 36v cart. I understand that the motor will only reach 3/4 rated RPM but is there a logical reason he would have done this? Other than top speed is there any reason I should put a 36V motor in the cart?

In a 96 Club Car, are you sure you have a 36V system, they came both ways (36 & 4.
Are you happy with the current speed and power?
If you are content with the power, then don't worry about it.

The previous owner may have just put 6v batteries in a 48v cart, too ? Check and see if the solenoid is 48v rated? That will tell the tale, maybe.

Thanks for the replies. I was able to contact the previous owner and he told me it's a 36V cart He had a motor burn up and the 48V motor was all the repairman had on stock. He didn't want to wait for the correct motor.
