Default How to improve power from Robins 295 engine

About to embark on huge restoration project, involving engine and gearbox rebuild. And generally making the cart look nicer. Have 20 inch wheels, new walnut dashboard, GPS speedo (finally found a nice one), new steering wheel, 5 piece mirror and smart seat covers on order.

I am not replacing the engine as the single cylinder will probably be too noisy for family use. Just want to know if there is anything else I can do to make this thing more powerful? This will be my main family vehicle so I don't mind spending $$ on it, but don't want it more noisy. Even 10% more power would make a difference.

Thanks for all the forum help so far and I think this is just about the last piece of info I need before starting the cart renovation.

rather than rebuild the engine for 600 you could get a ct rebuilt engine and up you displacement to 375cc , just a quality rebuild and more power , also clock your driven clutch up up to position 3 and you should have 10-20 percent more power and torque

First thing I would do is check the valve clearance. Those little motors do fairly well when everything is right.

Thanks guys. Please can you tell me more about CT Rebuilt 375 Engine? Is this a modified 295? Can I get a kit to upgrade this? Where can I get one? What exactly is this? Sorry if basic question!

OK I found CenterBuilds 375 engine on eBay. A 375cc engine. 350cc - presumably with a re-bore? I have emailed them to ask if they will make one up and ship to Hong Kong. Many thanks.

Just one question. Is the CT rebuild going to be better than just buying a rebuilt standard 350 engine? I think the CT is a 295 with a 350 piston set and bored out with oversized rings... right? Wouldn't this treatment be just as good on a 350 engine?

How is the CT 13 HP versus the standard 11 HP from a 350. Thanks for helping me to understand all this.

If it is what I think it is.. It is a 350 with a 295 head and some tweeking.. Thinking around 18 hp when done.. Is the place you are looking at in Appling GA ?

Hi kgsc - I found this on eBay after the first reply. It's billed as a 13HP EZGO 375 Pre MCI engine. They need a 295 in return and I think it's a 295 engine bored out with 350 Pistons, but not 100% sure. Have only exchanged an email and haven't yet got their phone number.

HOWEVER...I think the sound of an 18HP HP engine based on a Robin 350. Any more clues on who might do these?

Many thanks!
