Got em all charged up. Took a couple charging cycles to get them to hold the charge. Tested with DVM and a hydrometer. I got 16 good batts out of the 18 so I am definitely happy with the results! Thanks for all your help. I have posted pics of the 2 we built so far. We were going to sell them but ended up keeping them!! Haha.

I'm not sure a DVM is the best battery tester.....i had batteries that would charge up and show food voltage but as soon as you would put a load on them they would fall fast.....

Ok all batts charges and during testing we noticed that the 2 batteries nearest the main negative were always a little better than the rest in all 3 carts. Is this just coincidence or is there some phenomenon to this?

Basic bone stock golf course carts with no acc. Hmm. Maybe I'll assemble them to be the best pack.
