Nice, clean, green lifted machine! I like the retro frill on the top.

Thanks,,,, I thought you would appreciate the frill.

I just noticed that pieces of what looks like a hard rubber bushing around the bolt that attaches the rear spring to the frame, are missing. Are they difficult to replace and do you know if they are something that is available from after market dealers or do I have to get them from Club Car? Got any secrets to share that would cause less swearing?

They are the same as the spring bushings and easy to change,just jack it up enough to let the pressure off unbolt it pull out the bolts and finish jacking it up it should all fall down where you can change them.You can buy the bushings in the aftermarket.

Pictures like that disgust me. Shiny golf cart, awesome tires, nice sunshine... Why in the world did my parents want to live in Wisconsin? I know God intended me to live someplace warm and sunny, so somebody in my lineage really messed up. I should be in a place where I can tinker and roll around while staying warm and driving all year long.

Hey Tech,,,, there's room opening up down here everyday in God's Waiting Room ,,,, come on down!

I know winter has a whole different meaning up there but this has been the coldest winter I've seen since I moved here in 1973. I've burned 6 truck loads of oak this year,,,, twice as much as ever before. We've been running 20 degrees below normal for the last month. I'm going to have to head to the Keys just to warm up.

I hope I'm not becoming a pain in the butt,,,,, but I have more questions about the batteries. I think I got fed a bunch of crap from the guy I got the cart from concerning the batteries. First, they are not a matched set. He told me that one had a bad cell and he replaced it. Problem is that he put in a Trojan battery with 5 interstate batteries. I read in one of the threads that doing this was not good because the newer battery would charge quicker than the older ones and would cook while the rest were charging up. We that's exactly what seems to be happening. When charging I can hear the Trojan bubbling and when I take the cap off you can see it doing that. I also found the Interstate battery that was wired in line with the Trojan, had a cell low on water. Because of the mixture of batteries I had intended to replace them,,,, just not this soon. I was going to replace the cables now, but I might wait and do everything at once.

My question is,,,, will the battery life degrade rapidly or is there still some run time left? What should I look for to happen if I don't replace them right away. Also, if I do replace them now, what is the best bang for the buck today? Not just price,,,, but performance and longevity. Also is there anything stamped on the batteries that will tell their real age?
