Verify that you connected a wire from bottom of f/r switch to the 3rd battery's positive terminal for 1/2 speed reverse and did not leave it hanging unconnected . . . .

I don't recall unhooking any thing at the f&r switch but when I reverse the black and white I get reverse but no forward

When you changed out the batteries, there should have been a wire connected to battery #3 that comes from the f/r switch which provides the 1/2 speed reverse . . . check to see if you have, I believe, a 10 awg wire connected to that battery that routes back to the bottom of the f/r switch . .

At bottom of F&R switch if your standing behind cart view left bottom is red and right bottom is black I don't see a wire that goes direct to battery there wasn't one before

You should be looking for a battery cable here. There are 2 terminals at the bottom of the F&R they must both go to a positive battery supply via 2 cables one to 36v+ for forward and other to 18v+ for reverse. OR there may be a buss bar or short cable connecting them together and a single 36v+ supply connection. See that one of these supplies is in place 1st.
