Default '88 DS with a seized engine. Options

I just picked up my first cart - a 1988 DS with a seized engine. The cart is all there and relatively clean and was only $200 so I can spend some money before it gets outta hand.

I've ordered a 4" Jakes A-Arm lift kit and Jake's disc brake kit. I should probably have them in a month or so.

As far as the motor - I think I'm going to put in a Vanguard V-twin using both Vegas and Cart Parts Plus parts.

-Vanguard 18hp engine
-Vegas engine mount, throttle cable and other install components
-Comet 780
-New secondary clutch
-Cart parts plus header with a piece of flexible exhaust tubing into the stock muffler (this will be a neighborhood cart and I'm trying to limit the noise).

I'm guessing I will just add a new key switch and wire directly to the briggs motor.

I will post some pictures as the project moves along. If I'm missing anything, let me know. Thoughts?

Hey! I resemble that comment!

I don't need anything at the moment, actually getting ready to do that clone swap on my '90 Club Car this winter. Like the original poster, I plan to use the stock muffler to try and keep the noise down.
