Default Ground wire gets hot and smokes

I have a 1985 EZGO 2-stroke golf cart. It will run a while then bog down. When I was working on it I noticed the Ground from my battery to the frame was extremely hot and smoking. Also the F1 and A1 wire from my alternator generator were very hot too. Any ideas what could be causing this?
