Default 1995 electric EZGO to 45hp Arctic Cart conversion

Time to give an update on the Arctic Cat engine install. Overall everything has been going incredibly smooth and I havent had any major problems. The engine sat on the motor mount beautifully but the clutch would rub on the left motor mount tube. I had to fab a "lift kit" for the motor in order to get it up off the motor mount. I used 2 extra thick 2"x6" long trailer receiver hitches and cut them up to work as the lift kit. Installing a motor like this just takes a lot of patience and measuring 10 times before doing anything. I will post some pictures of the engine later.

Frank you're motor mount works great for these engines! I'm amazed at how simple it went together.


Does anybody know how or if I can use the speedometer that came with this engine?


Oh the cart I put this in was a 95 electric EZGO that I am going to sell. :o If I dont get what I want for this cart I'm pulling the motor out and putting it in my workhorse!! I like it!

I think your best bet is to get a bike speedo. Fully programable for your tire size and I think it would be much more accurate than the one you mentioned since it is going into a cart now. I really like mine. It has
trip miles
trip time
total miles
temp
total hours
max speed
average speed
I think it is very easy to read too. Big numbers. Even at 30+ mph

Here are some pictures of the engine installed.
I have all of the wiring hooked up but I cant get the startor to turn over. When I turn the key the solenoid clicks but nothing else happens.

Hope you enjoy thi pics.

I think you are going to have problems with that belt not being straight.When the clutches are all the way engaged they are going to be crooked as heck.

What do you mean? They are as straight as an arrow now. The angle the pics at is what makes it look crooked. Unless these clutches do something I dont know about. I lined it up according to how my other EZGO belts are.

I think it looks great, should fly! Keep in mind that when the drive clutch contracts and the driven expands, it is making some significant pulling force. As in it pulls that side of the engine and that side of the differential together. Be sure to tighten the crap out of the bolts holding your mounts to the cradle and get the engine mounting ones pretty tight too, but watch that aluminum. AND, get plenty of videos of that beast in action!
