I agree with Dabble .

No damage to front of cart or driven clutch .

I think someone left the baffle off carburetor , it shot back with a little fire because intake valves had sucked in head and set air cleaner on fire. From there it got a little hot. Final answer

So I pulled that head off over a week ago. It all looked good. But while doing so 4 header bolts broke off. Was able to pull it off. Just have 4 bolts sticking out a 1/2in.
Washed the outside best I could. Used some parts cleaner (purple power) turned the aluminum dark gray. I'm going to take the head to a machine shop to remove the bolts. Tried to remove them with a little heat and vice grips. Didnt work. Considered trying Electalisis or the Alum and water/heat method. Never done that before though. Is there a good method to shine that housing back up?

Meguiar's wheel cleaner. Get the strong stuff with the acid in it (look in the ingredients). It will make the aluminum shine like new again. I use it on 4wheelers that the motor is now black/brown and stained with mud because the previous owner thought it was a submarine...

look at the brake cable adjuster nuts on this Honda Foreman ("T" nuts next to the brake). The entire rear diff and back of the brake was that brown color...

Have them plane the head for flatness while they have it, and I'd replace those bolts with studs

I was thinking about having them plane it. Studs are a briliant idea. Thank you.
