Default Suggestions on diesel build

I have a 3 cylinder yanmar diesel .88 Liter im planning on squeezing it in a cart......but which cart is the question? I like the Yamaha and ez go golf carts...im looking at a ez go mpt1200. I like the stretched carts for the reason of being able to have room for passengers a cooler And extra room for radiator and batterys for tunes....any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
Going to be a slow build but ill take pics and everyone posted.

A work cart would be nicer for that, no question. I kinda wonder if we can finally get those v twin diesels how they would work in a cart. Air cooled gets rid of extra swap work. May be less power though. But if you have a yanmar you are set, can't go wrong with a real watercooled engine. Many have to drop them down some due to height, but otherwise should not be any other big problems. Some of the ezgo work carts also have posi rear if you go mudding or something.

I can't help with the Yamaha parts, but make sure the radiator gets plenty of air.

Springs and weights for my comet 780 coming in tomorrow, 8:1 high speed gears end of next week! Hoping 800rpm clutch engagement works. Attached pic is from a couple days ago wiring up and installing gauges and fan relay tomorrow....I'll try to get some better pics.

You have any pictures of how the engine setup is in here? I built a G22 3 cylinder diesel last year and in the process of building one in my EZGO Workhorse mpt1200 and plan on putting a turbo on it. Trying to see how your turbo is setup on it.
