Default Any Difference Between 96 and 97 DS?

This is probably more for the technical guys or some experts on different years models and details...

I have a "new to me" Club Car. According to the S/N it is a 97 but it was sold to me as a 96 ...... Anyway I have a service and repair manual of about 550 pages PDF file. The manual is for a 96 according to the front page. But like I said the SN shows it to be a 97. It is also a 48 v and a DS as best as I can tell.

Were there any changes that would prohibit me from using the 96 manual I have for the car? Thanks for any advice.

the most major differences you,ll find is a DS vs REAGAN cart.........DS has a F&R lever and reagan has a F&R rockerswitch and there are some differences in wiring..........they made both in 96 and 97...........your manual should cover both of them.............................................8 )

An unrelated question but can I get a copy of your manual? Is there are wiring diagram included that details the wiring from the OBC to the resistor bank, ignition switch, alarm light etc. I have a pictorial diagram of this but it lacks detail.
