Oh and $100 was way too much for a running unmolested cart like that, i will take it off you for 110 and pay the shipping to the UK. LOL

You got yourself such a bargain, you can afford to spend a bit to make it reaaly nice.

It is unlikely to be factory as in those years (i think) the rear body shape was different, the frame was longer etc but i think later they fitted a small box on the back of some carts as standard fitment. what you have is most likely to be an aftermarket kit, originally as a rear seat and fitted with a box, or it was a flip seat that converted from rear seat to cargo tray. Looks either way to have been modified by a previous owner. The clue is in the footplate behind the bumper.

There are many subtle difference between the haulers and the buggies, i think also all the utility haulers had multi leaf rear springs and the buggies were single leaf, but yours may have had aftermarket rear springs to cope with extra weight in the box etc. there are also other clues as to the year of the cart such as the front axle type and steering, but you dont need to worry as the later type was done in 2001.

As i have not been involved with EZGO carts physically for around ten years, i may be slightly out with my info but as i was a leading Ezgo authority back then in th UK i did know a fair bit LOL. i am sure someone will correct me with more detail soon enough.

OK, now i am confused, it looks to be a 350 cc engine going by the sticker on the cam belt cover and the rear springs are looking to be heavy duty. also the way the rear axle is fitted to the springs looks like a utility vehicle type but the body is golf buggy? maybe picture of the rear axle fitment will help. I think someone else should chime in here and correct me. Maybe US models were different to the UK models but did not think that was the case. Maybe it is just my memory playing up or the cart has been more modified than i first thought.

Did i say "unmolested"? i think ineed to study the pictures more. LOL

I think those look like early Jakes spindles, i dont know if they are bushed, but i would assume that they are.

I am now on my computer rather than the fone and can see the pictures better, i will see if there are any other clues i can see for identification. Its a shame i have all my books stashed away in storage.

I am beginning to doubt my memory here now, i wonder if the Freedom model was standard with the 350 engine or maybe another model. Lets wait to see what others have to say as i dont want to be giving you wrong information.


EDIT

Ok, i found this info that may be of use.

E-Z-GO introduced the 295cc engine in 1991 as standard equipment and it has changed little since then. We recommend the engine seals and the head, exhaust & case gaskets be replaced when the crankshaft is removed. These and other engine bearings & seals are available in this or other sections of our catalog.

Note 1: The 295cc and the 350cc engine look almost identical. The engine ID number is located on the front face of a metal air shroud (early engines) or plastic shroud (later engines) attached on the very front of the engine proper, just behind of the carburetor. A designation of EH29 indicates the 295cc engine. If the label states EH35 then it is the 350cc version. Although the balancer bearings in both engines are the same, other critical parts, such as the head gasket and pistons, are not. Be sure to determine which engine you are repairing before ordering parts.

Note 2: The 295cc engine can be found in the E-Z-GO golf cars and some the small utility trucks, such as the 804 (1991-93) and the Tuff 1 (1994-96). These models have the older boxy diamond plate body. Starting in 1997, the WorkHorse 800 gas truck also used the 295cc engine. Some of the 4 & 6 seater personnel carriers also used this engine. The 350cc engine can be found in the WorkHorse 1200 small wheel utility trucks, the ST-350 model line of lifted trucks and in the Clays Car.

Note 3: E-Z-GO makes some of their utility trucks for other Textron companies. The 295cc & 350cc engines also are found in the Cushman Commander 280 & 2200 trucks, Jacobsen 1110 gas Hauler and in the Steiner ST-350 big wheel truck, all from 1996 through 2004. The Cushman Commander 4800, the Steiner ST-480 and the E-Z-GO WorkHorse ST-480 all used a completely different engine & these counter balance shaft bearings will not fit in those models. Likewise, this bearing is not for use in the 18hp Onan twin-cylinder engine used in the E-Z-GO GT-7 & GXT-1500 heavy duty 3-wheel utility trucks.

See Edit above.

Im beginning to think the original engine has been replace with a later MCI 350.

Does it have cast iron manifold or a built in manifold cast with the head?
