Default Rear end swap

Im new and not exactly sure where to post this question so if it needs to be moved please tell me. I have a 2003 electric Club Car I am in the process of converting to a gas. I want to use a gas rear end so I will have reverse, but I am not sure if a gas rear end will bolt right up or need to be modified. I would like some info on this if anyone can help me before I go buy a rear end. Thanks in advance!

What engine are you using? It matters because the direction your engine runs makes a difference as to which rear end I'm gonna tell you to use.

You'd need a '96 or older rear end for anti-clockwise rotation.

Exactly.... But here's the problem. You also need a transmission, which is no longer available from Club Car. The new style rearends have the transmissions built into the case. You'll use an electric car rear end with a transmission instead of an electric motor. Good luck finding one. We've got two cars at work that need them and we haven't been able to locate one at all.

So if I can find a transmission it will bolt up to the electric rear end?

Yes. All cars prior to 1997 whether gas or electric used the same rear end. Gas got a transmission, electric got an electric motor
