If the cart is stock and just has the engine removed, it should come with all of the brackets, motor cradle, etc to just bolt it right in and go. Most of what you're paying for with their kits is the engineering and design that goes into producing their mounts and cradles to make it an easy bolt-in installation. I believe you discard the factory front and rear engine mounts that the stock motor bolts to, and replace it with their supplied cradle.

Depending on the condition of the cart, if it's in the ~$500 range, you'd be into it for around $2200-2300 with the big block kit. I'd say that's worth it. Around here you can't touch a stock gas golf cart for under $2k in rough condition if it just runs and drives... A nicer one with stock motor and a lift kit you can't touch for under $3k so you could be in pretty good shape with a beast of an engine if you can get a good deal on the cart, even if they keep the old engine for parts.


If it's more than $500 with a blown up engine it would have to be in REAL nice condition. I'd offer them $200 and see what they say :)

The only thing stock about my cart is the engine and the rear end. I've designed and fabricated everything else including the engine mounts, which is why I'm not sure how this will work. I've looked at the pictures in the installation manual but I'd need some hands on with the engine and mounts to see if I could make it work for my application. Not sure I want to pull the trigger on buying it to find out it won't work.

Sorry for hijacking the discussion.

They want 400.00 without engine. I can't get back to them til next week. But I'm going to try to get it for 300 if I can. Thanks for the advice. At least there are options.

Sorry I wasnt paying attention and didnt realize Gotti was not the original poster lol

$400 seems like a good deal. Even better st $300. You could be into a nicely powered rig for around $2k and have plenty of.room for upgrades! Around here a stock gas txt goes for $2k in rough shape. More if it's nice. I sold a stock motored txt for $3k and it sold in about 2 or 3 days. it was nice, but not really.anything super special.

lol yes i do :) Others like it without the lift kit, tires, paint, flip seat, etc. sell for more. I was just done with it and ready to move on to a different project. Once they work and there's nothing left to fix I lose interest pretty quickly

If $400 is not going to break you and you have the room to store this cart then pull the trigger and buy the thing. You keep waiting and someone will beat you to it. I would first offer $300 though but I try and low ball everything. Sometimes it actually costs me though.
If you buy it and be patient then I can bet you an engine will show up sooner or later, maybe even here
I know I would.

Yes I have room to put it in. I am away but will be back first of the week. I think I will buy and wait for a bit and see what Parts show up. I have an electric cart so I have nothing but time ! Thanks for all the advice. Really appreciate it.
