Here is the series test schematic you can do it with 12v if the cart is on jacks, which we suggest... you do not need 36v to test. Three 6v (18 volts) as shown. Also do NOT let the motor run WOT or it will grenade with no load.
TEST

P.S. This is prolly a waste of effort as these motors almost NEVER EVER go bad .... have fun!
You are welcome PG and Mike .....


Thanks for the group effort! Guys

Scotty, is this worded right?
I didn't think you wanted your motor to go WOT on jackstands.
