Default 85 Electric EZGO Cart wont start

I just bought an 85' 36 volt ez go golf cart, for $100.
previous owner said it ran last year. I reconditioned the 6
trojan batteries,now holding a full charge.I have cleaned all
electric conections, replaced wires connecting batteries
6 guage w/4 guage. I am getting limited power through the forward/reverse switch in reverse only. The solenoid clicks once with key on stepping on gas to start.If i bypass solenoid i still get nothing it seems i should replace forward/reverse assembly. I have little experience with electric motors. I took this one apart,brushs are in good shape,it looks to be in good working order. still i cant get it to start. Is there a way I can put power directly to the motor long enough to see that it works? sugestions or advice welcomed, and appretiated. I am looking forward to getting this cart up and running so i can begin modifying it. The first of many, I hope. Thanks THEJESSO

Thanks again for feedback. motor tests reveal my motor is no good in my EZ GO. I have couple of questions, who would you recomend to service my motor? and is it possible to increase horse power? and whats a ball park cost? Can someone tell me, my 85 EZGO....is it dcs or pds
or IQ type ? i do not beleive it has a controller. The manufacture # is D 17 85.

I just picked up a 73 cushmen golfster # 8910z7310 for $200 with new trojan batteries and 36 volt charger. can anyone tell me is it DCS PDS PPS OR I Q TYPE ? And where would i find an extra long shift lever ?
Im picking up a harley 3 wheeler this week in sweet shape for only $400.
Thats 3 carts in 3 weeks for $700, and i feel i am just getting started. Thanks for any and all input.

These guys here can rewind that motor for more speed or torque or both at the flip of a switch.......http://www.empinc.biz/
