Default Help With Cooling An Air Cooled Engine On A Golf Cart...

Please Help. I have a Golf Cart that I had an air cooled Yamaha Motorcycle engine installed on. I have installed an air cooler on the front hood and 2 cooling fans below the seat and into the engine bay. The problem is that no matter what we do we can not keep this engine cool enough to do any type of long drives with. As it overheats in about 10 minutes or less. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The wiring even gets hot as well. Their has to be a way. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for any suggestions as they are greatly appreciated.

have you rejetted the carbs yet? I would make sure you are running on the edge of rich first. This should cool down the motor.
Also make sure you have vents on the rear engine compartment so that hot air can escape.

Welcome to BGW. Get us some pic's of your cart so we can give some better suggestions on how to ventilate the engine compartment.

OK what is your email. This is an older picture. I have since added a larger cooling fan and have done some body work as well.

I am not sure how to send photos. I have an older picture. Before I used a larger fan and added an extra one on the front of the seat.
