Default 87 CC Gasser - New Life to an Old Cart

Well - here goes. My wife had my brother-in-law looking for a used, cheap golf cart for me for my birthday (gotta love a wife like that!!).

Here's what we came up with - an '87 with a seized KF82 engine and lots of room for potential, lol:

Here's some looks inside of the engine compartment on the day it followed me home:









Lots of clean up ahead!

Haha! Thanks Dock! Funny thing is my b-day isn't until July, he just didn't want this thing sitting around his yard until then! I'm actually a little way into the rebuild and just figured out how to get photos uploaded, so I'm going to post a bunch of pix of the stages along the way while the boss is out to lunch here at work!

Wow... I hope the rest of the present is some more $$$$ to fix it up. Just removing that eyeball from the center of the hood will help tons. :)

Seriously, have fun... and we love pics.

I like the eye ball add a brass bell, paint it up like an old GMO steam engine and have a ball with it. Whats the worst you can do, scratch it?

Here's where we got the ol' girl undressed and took a look around:







Next I'll post some close up shots of the motor, clutches, rear end, etc.

lol, thanks guys (and gals)! The cyclops was one of the first things to go! I'm on my way to making a mini Willy's style jeep to cruise around the neighbor hood on. I cheated a little and ordered a fiberglass Jeep front cowl that I just can't wait to get mounted! Many more pictures to come!

These are some close ups on the engine, starter/gen, and clutches. I already ordered the Powermax 16hp motor and Comet 780 clutch to replace the front, and shipped off my driven clutch to Top at CPP per the advice I found on this site. Hopefully he will get it tomorrow and turn it around pretty soon:

Good little project...... I am in process of putting the 13hp clone in an 85. Looks the same. You will need to move the engine ahead a little to clear the new starter from the rear end ..... Only then can you measure for a belt....
I can't tell you the size because I used a larger diameter driven clutch...
Keep the pics coming
