Big Block Conversion (Golf Cart)

I know a lot of people on here have varied interests outside the car hobby world. I am in the process of converting a 1994 Hyundai gas golf cart from the stock 8.5 HP Suzuki motor to a 16 HP 420cc Honda clone. Anyone else here done something similar. Specifically with either a Hyundai or Yamaha G2-G9 golf cart?

There's nothing wrong with being stupid as long as you know you're stupid, it's when you're stupid and don't know it that you become dangerous.

I know a guy that used to pull the electric motor out of the old carts and install 250 big red atc motors in them. They have shaft drive, electric start, 5 speed forward and a reverse. Jim

I actually have a spare motor/trans and swing arm out of a Honda 250SX (Big Red Sport version).

Re: Big Block Conversion (Golf Cart)

I did the swap to a club car cart about 10 years ago.. Used the Harbor Freight Honda knock off engine. The biggest issue was a clutch/belt combo. I was visiting a forum called Buggies Gone Wild Golf Cart Forum that had a ton of info on doing these sorts of swaps.
Oh and the other thing I had to do was unhook the oil level sensor, or it would stall out the engine on steep inclines.

Re: Big Block Conversion (Golf Cart)

Thought your were talking about a BBC years ago I saw a SBC in a golf cart at the nationals in Brainerd,MN. Lots of motorized picnic tables too.
