Cool Project Club Car

Hey guys, Im new to this site, and new to Golf Carts. Recently picked up a cheap golf cart, and I plan on making her a little side project and doing some work to it. I got some pictues of before and during work. I'll probably need some help and opinions along the way. Any feedback is welcome!

This is basically just a progress thread.

Golf Cart - $150
Gas - $10
Brake cleaner - $6
Spark Plug - $3
Rim polish labour - (Footlong pizza sub) $6
Primer - $5



To keep things interesting I'll post lots of pictures.!

Im currently playing with this 1987 Club Car.







Currently tearing it down. Pics to come!

Thanks joe. yeah, that bumper looks homemade. Im trying to take it off and give her a spray bomb. Right now Im working on sanding all the rims, going to paint them metalic blue. also going over a lot of metal with a wire brush just to get off all the build up.

Got a couple of phone calls Im waiting on, both in regards to a snowmobile engine. Dont know how hard it will be to swap over, but I'd sure like to.

Stripped her down some more. Got the wheels off the rims, started to prime them, bought 3 used matching tires for the cart. Looking for an engine tomorrow.


Can I not edit my first post??

I know, I really regret not pressure spraying it before tear-down. The whole thing came complete, and it ran. I had a lot of troubles trying to get it run right and I think the exhaust valve may need adjusting. I dont want to put a whole bunch of work into this engine when I want to drop a sled engine into it.



Cost


Golf Cart - $150

Spark Plug - $3
Rim polish labour - (Footlong pizza sub) $6
Primer - $5
Blue Chrome Paint - $10
3 Matching used tires - (26 Bacardi white) $25
Wire brushes - $7




Hopefully gunna look around at some sleds and talk to some mechanics about mounting a CW engine into a CCW transaxle, and if it will work..

wait it was in 97whe they changed the rotation for the new axle set up. so you should have issue with a newr or diffent engine. you said you had a 87 or 88 cart. im confused man!
