  • 86 Club Car DS 36V

    This cart was pretty much stock when I got it. I'll use it at the lake to help with lawn work and carry folks back and forth to the dock/ramp.

        Yes, eventually a lift kit and rear seat. I think I'll leave it a resistor cart to save a little money. Started with tires that hold air, new batteries and new seats. Now I've got the front cowl off and fiberglassing some damaged areas. Next will be new shocks, heavy-duty springs, heavy-duty F/R switch, power cables and fixing some modified wiring. Someone had wired around the reverse buzzer and charging fuse. These mods will make it a reliable work vehicle for now until I can save up for the lift, tires/wheels and rear seat.

                  Took off the top. Had to to cut a doggone access panel in the back. Took off the front cowl. Fiberglassing some damaged areas. New steering bellows and shocks. All cleaned up and lubed.

                    Took off the rear body next. Years of dirt! Cleaned it up, replaced rear shocks with extensions, replaced springs with heavy-duty, replaced all bushings. New rear suspension! Whew!
                    By the way, will need to drain and refill differential. Does anyone know how to do that? Drain at bottom, fill at top to middle bolt hole?

                        Thanks Tim. Here are the pics of the new rear suspension. Figured out the differential lube. Does anyone know what that vent on top of the differential is for?

                          New Power and battery cables came in today. I'll work on those this weekend along with installing the heavy duty F/R switch. Hope it runs after I'm done!

                            Differentials are typically vented. As the oil heats up, it expands. Without venting, the expanded oil will pump it's way past seals.
