It is Gas.
Sorry about wrong forum.
It seems whenever I connect hot lead from battery, all the wires start getting hot to solenoid, to starter/generator and to volt regulator.
I have disconnected battery ground and cleaned terminals.
I bought this as nonrunning and all I have been able to get is some clicking noises out of the volt. reg. It has not turned over yet.
I replaced volt reg and solenoid with no success
Any help is appreciated.

Check each Battery, to make sure yoy dont have a shorted Battery in the pack. I dont think this is the case because if you have a club cart Charger
it will trip and not charge if there are Battery problems.

Take a picture of the Batteries as you have them wired and post here !

Okay We are pretty sure we got a gas cart? Club Car? When you connect the single battery all the main wires get hot. Correct? If not all a bunch. Right? Get some pencil & paper or tape and marker. Whatever your choice is and mark the starter wires so you can take them off move them around and still be sure of which one went where. Take pictures! Got that ? Now do it to generator and voltage reg wires. Basically all of the major leads. There aren't that many. Now you can do this one of two ways from here. You can disconnect everything, hook up the battery, and start putting everything back in the order the battery juice goes until you get a spark or hot wires. Or you can disconnect one thing at a time and reconnect the battery each time to see when the short stops. I hope this helps It might not be the best way but it worked for me once. LOL
