That is not a bad idea - if it works for outboards, then why not a golf cart.

Regardless, the motor is coming out anyways, and I might as well order a couple of new crank seals so that Madoc doesn't give me heck.

In my complete ignorance, I'm guessing the motor should only be the removal of a few belts, a few bolts and a lift out (no chain hoist required). Right?

BTW, would liek to support a site sponsor, but most are charging quite a few pennies more for the rebuild kit vs. eBay. Anyone had better success with one of the sponsors for flexible pricing on the top end kit?

Thanks for the tip Madoc.

Local guy can order them in for me, and was able to come down on the price enough that I didn't need to worry about shipping or customs. So it's all good.

I'll update once I get the kit a few weeks from now. Wife has already found me a nice 70s beige tartan vinyl that should look sharp. thinking a metallic copper or brown might be a good color for the cart.

Hey Madoc,

I'm up here in the great white north! Unfortunately, those "free shipping" specials don't apply when you're North of the 49th parallel.

Clutch puller! Yikes! Guess I need that at some point to remove the engine? Think I need to watch some videos here.....

So I'm unhooking the oil injection, and notice that there are two hoses - one to what looks like a pump on the outside of the cooling fan, and the other from this pump to the carb.

Question is, can I take out the tank, and both hoses, do I have to leave one of the hoses hooked up, or do I take the hoses, pump, and tank?

I'm also torn - do I take the motor out for the rebuild, or leave it in? It looks like it's a little to tight to get in to the nuts attaching the jug to the crankcase with a socket, so how do you torque these correct? Or, I've gone through the manual 6-7 times, and still can't visualize how to get the engine out. I already have the muffler off, and still can't see how to get it out.

Grrrrr. At least I pressure washed the canopy and painted up the canopy supports today.

on the oil pump, lose everything and just plug the hole in the intake manifold.yes you should pull the engine, because you are going to replace the seals. right?there are i believe just 4 bolts holding the engine. you have get to them from underneath. take lots of pics so will have something reference when you rewire and plumb.

Thanks Madoc,

Does "losing everything" mean taking the pump off as well? If memory serves correct, it also has a linkage attached to it, that I guess comes off too.

Four bolts underneath - you make that sound so easy. For not the first time in my life, I wish I had a hoist.

yes, pump too, altho it doesn't have to come off. with it and the tank gone it just makes it a lot cleaner looking.
don't need a hoist. the engine doesn't weigh that much. just put the cart on jack stands, then you can get under it easier and won't have to bend over so far to work on it.
