Agreed, looked like we were re-visiting the 4 vs. 6 battery issue again?

That's exactly what I was trying to say. Sorry for the confusion.

Once again, sorry for the confusion. That wasn't my intention at all.

I'm just trying to keep it as easy as possible for a person new to carts on a first time build so they don't get frustrated, loose interest, and abandon the cart project because of it.

Scotty, Thank you for taking the time to educate me about my old cart. Let me absorb the almost 1k to replace my batteries and I will be getting the conversion kit from you in a few months. I'm going to go with 6 x 8Volt and see how that works out with my current resistor setup for a month or two unless I am endangering my 36V motor by doing so?

Again, Thank you all

Looks like I didn't do a very good job.

I think what Scotty was trying to say is converting to 48 volt with the resistor setup is not a great idea, probably should convert to solid state and 48 volt at same time and get the right charger as well.

As far as the 12 or 8 volt bats, suffice it to say 8 is better.

Yea, I'll probably do it all at the same time. Now i have to explain to my wife why I have to spend almost $2,300.00 to get this old cart running.

Thank you

That's why you got a deal on the cart. For that money you can get a 4 year old cart with all the new technology in it.
