but back to the original question, i've never worked on one of these motors specifically. When I have it pulled out to replace the crank seals, is there anything else I should pay particular attention while it's out? I'd really rather only pull it out once.

It's a cheap cart and I don't really intend to do a "full restoration" on it. (I also picked up a cheap gas DS I'm going to go through and make really nice.) I was just going to make this ezgo run right, and redo the seat so my kids can drive it around for the summer. and then end of summer, do a little paint and trim work on it to make it look presentable and sell it when they go back to school in a few months. Right now the task is to just get it to run like it should. I can get the crank seals up the road at my local dealer, I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything else I should replace while I'm in there (points??? Not sure what kind of ignition this has...)
