Default 4-5 8v battery's in a 36v golf cart?

I have two golf carts I'm looking to rebuild one using new batteries. I'm wondering if the old 8v can be used in the 36v club car. Looked for an answer and coming up short. If this is posted some where else please send me the link thanks in advance.

Yes it can be done. I ran a 36v cart for years on 5 8v batteries and a 36 volt charger. It worked just fine.

Charger will not charge them correctly, 5-8v = 40 volts 4-8 volts = 32 no OBC is set up for them as is the charger. The life will be short

And no OBC is present on 36v cars.....technically this is a bad thing to do (batteries may never get fully charged), but it would work and drive. The life of the batteries may be reduced. Its your money...

Only thing to be careful of, the first time you plug in the charger, be sure that the ammeter does not rise above the charger amp rating. If the ammeter "pegs on max", the charger will not be happy long.
