I did one in a yamaha, it nearly hits the rear shock with the air intake, but its not the same as a CC....but might give you some ideas. Making the mount was the easy part....doing all the plumbing was the hard part.

Yes that clutch did rub the frame and I had to grind to get it to fit. However that clutch (comet 94C) is no longer available and you may find what ever is available now to have a lower profile. I don't know what is available for this ... contact Tom at CPP for clutches.
In answer to your question;
The whole clone engine swap is no less than a motor conversion. It is not simple.
If fact a big block kit would be much easier to do .
Things to modified to make it work;
Engine cradle
Clutch / Belt
Air cleaner
throttle linkage
fuel delivery
Exhaust system
Ignition system
It did work ..... but
I suggest the original motor over the clone. Other members may have had different results. The original motor and cart were designed to work together ... this motor & your cart are not... it's all experimental and you may end up having to redo things many times to get the desired results if you have not done this before. I think everybody who starts this type of project should go into it with their eyes wide open.

If you can handle fabrication and welding, its a very easy swap. If you haven't fabricated/welded before, this is quite the task to undertake.

I'm actually upgrading my 16hp club car to a twin in a week or two and well have the complete 16hp swap for sale shortly. It will be a complete drop in swap ready to run with wiring, belt, clutches, engine plate etc.

The only fabrication and welding I had to do was bend some small brackets to make my new throttle linkage and weld the new exhaust flange to the new exhaust I made. Its not really a big deal, but it did require a welder and a pipe bender to make the exhaust. I think a lot of people on here just use the factory exhaust. There is a little bit of electrical work but if you cant figure it out there are a ton of people on here that will help you. Honestly the hardest part of the install for me was to get the belt tension right so I could drill my new mounting holes for the motor. I installed both clutches and the belt with the motor loose on the cradle and then I had to square it up and mark my holes to mount it. If that is the right way to do it another set of hands would have made it a lot easier. Good luck

Scotty, what is that on the firewall that is right before the fuel filter or is that a 2 cycle low oil sensor?

I found a piece of lumber that just fit between the clutches, then used a straight edge to measure the offset. Set the engine in and lined it up, took the end off a metal scribe and marked the holes. Took engine out and drilled them, all done. Earlier when I made the mount I just got it roughly in the right spot, checked clearance for everything else around the engine and the starter, etc., got the height I wanted for the mount and welded the mount together.

I'm installing a 16hp Duromax in an '86 CC DS, looking at Scotty's Pics above, will this muffler work out of the box and connect right up for my build?

Did you ever find anything out on this? Im about to do the same thing, and that exhaust seemed like a really "clean" setup.
