this is the second video on this mid 80s ezgo golf cart that was stored in a barn after having run issues, in part 1 we got it running but had low compression, this time we pull the engine and repair it.

  • Hey great video. To get those broken bolts out use a pneumatic scribe. A little heat for really stuck. It’s like magic. I fought ez outs for years working as an industrial maintenance. Got a job with Michelin tire and the first time I saw a guy push a broken bolt out with a scribe it was like the clouds parted and angels sang.

  • It was a dark and stormy night in New England. And there I was, surrounded by an an army of hostile nuts and bolts, and parts of all different sizes. I was in a panic. And then I thought, "What would Mustie1 do?" And then I was calmed. God bless us one and all.

  • Hey Mustie, long time viewer first time poster. I really enjoy your channel and always look forward to the next project =). That cart looks very similar to my 88 ezgo marathon with the 244cc Robin/Subaru 2pg engine. Mine had a really hard life and ate a rock at some point in is life =/. I'd definitely replace the crank seals and check the reed valves when you rebuild the upper end. Also the manual calls for a tank of 40:1 mix before going to the normal 128:1 for the break in period. A lot of 2pg guys remove the oiler and just do a premix as they are prone to fail. Glad to see that your clutches and ignition are working. I had to replace the ignition and might need a driven clutch. Mine had bad motor mounts as well and replacing those not only helped the noise but it also helped with low end torque. Good luck!!!

  • 31:40 you can really tell that pulling together force on a pipe wrench. You hardly have to clamp those at all but once you put force on them and they start to dig in they tighten all on their own!

  • I think ir wouldn't hurt to try some Marcel mystery oil in that engine on that green golf kart utilitly work truck. Your working on with engine troubles having low compresión power for starting puedes alone for it yo be able to Run.,or A stuck valve.,or to much carbón build Up in valve chambear.&on top of the pistón yo Larry.,or Larrie on mustie1 youtube videos will it run.

  • 39:50 ALWAYS lube your piston wrist pin bearings with two stroke oil when you install the piston. They need lubrication, I used to race two stroke motocross bikes and performed my own piston replacements many times.

    Wassamatta UWassamatta U19 kun oldin
  • 37:25 ALWAYS place a shop towel around the connecting rod when removing the piston retaining clips so that they do not fall into the crank case. Not a big deal in this instance as he can shake the engine upside down but if you are working on a two stroke that is still in the frame it is a bad move not to do so.

  • 31:24 THANK YOU!!! It is SOOOO refreshing to see someone on here mention this! The same holds true for adjustable wrenches. It should be noted that Channellock pliers are STILL PROUDLY made in the USA. Best to all. :)

  • Hey @Mustie1 the system was made with an oiler, the carb isn't dialed in to run on 2 cycle mix. Plus the 2 cycle oil will not lube properly, which is probably why the rings wore the way they did.

  • Why not do it all the way right? This is a foul ball all the way. Over 300k views, 1500 in revenue off part 2. Your viewers paid for it. Needs .010 oversize. All this work, first oversize probably not a Nickle more expensive and pay some local machinist 30-50 bore it out.

  • I will bet you people overtorqued those bolts that rise up farther putting in the mounting bolts up top and squashed that head gasket a bit too much. Then they were too loose and the head gasket blew out. Thoughts?

  • This one came up in my feed so I clicked on it then noticed I'd already clicked like. So it looks like I'm going to watch Herr Doktor Prefessor Mustie tear it down again. Let me guess. I'm going to hear his famous "I'm going in, time to tear that carb apart".

  • when installing the piston pin circlips: always lay them down on a table to make sure the ears are pointing away from the table. if you install them backwards, the pin will hit the ears and try to drive the pin out. those types are terrible.. the c type are so much better. nothing for the pin to work loose!

  • I was surprised to see, that after all the engines you work on, that you don't have snap ring pliers or ring expanding pliers. Ring expanding pliers takes away most of the risk of cracking the rings on install. And when you were putting the new rings in, you could have used adjustable band clamps like one would use on a hose only large enough to fit the piston. Using the adjustable band clamps would make it easier with less of a chance of cracking the rings, and be quicker than fighting them. Since they are adjustable you simply unscrew them to remove them.

    uplook2douplook2do23 kun oldin
  • people always think that because you can rock 2 strokes back and forth and hear a bearing noise they are "sloppy" or "loose from the factory". not so. 2 strokes need extra space for the rings and needle bearings to get lubricated! if they were too tight, they'd wear out really quickly for lack of fuel/oil mix being able to get into the bearings. very normal to have some "slop". the motor here clearly got very hot, and would need head resurfacing and making sure the block's deck didn't warp. some carbon cleaner in the rings overnight, a good clean and a new headgasket and should be ok!

  • Just rebuilt a chainsaw and it would not run with carb set up. Or new cheap carb. Did some research if rebuilding two stroke do crank seals it’s a common fault, Also found kit that does barrel piston and crank seals with crank bearings, they just slide off and new ones slide on. The old carb works the cheap one i got off the internet was junk. The throttle plate screw was not staked and came loose, so I locktited and staked it. Would not idle and found the idle mix screw tip was broken. I thought I had broken it, but on examination the idle hole had not been drilled. I sawed the carb to bits to find out. Lessons always replace crank seals, if air gets in it leans out and can lead to engine seize due to overheating on lean mix. Don’t buy cheap carb, if the throttle screw had come out then the engine would have eaten it? and hole not drilled for idle circuit, you get what you pay for.😀

  • Did Harley Davison not make engines for golf carts years ago?

    Matt NixonMatt NixonOy oldin
    • Yep. Harley made gas and electric golf cars. The electrics had a vacuum tube that had to heat up before the car would move. Not a big deal on the golf course, but in the parking lot you had to be careful where to park because they weren't good at quickly getting out of the way of an inattentive driver. Harley later unloaded the golf car biz, which then became Columbia Par Car. Columbia does still make some utility cars.

  • If the oil injector is do you adjust the amount of oil it injects? While working for Yamaha bikes,..they had and adjustment on the pump itself to change the ratio, ie 40 or 50 to 1 which was on a DT 175.

  • What was the compression after the ring job?? Also I have had a few old golf carts, the carb's are crap on them, I upgraded to better ones, I can't remember what ones I used, that was over 20 years ago, since then I started using the electric carts, less BS to worry about (on older models) Now the new gas golf carts are much better, bigger engines and much faster and more power...

  • Having seen the whole clip, I say best course would be to re-power it with a good 4 stroke 2 cylinder Honda, Subaru, B&S air cooled unit. That way you will have more reliability and no oil/fuel mixture to attend to. More power as well.

    • Doing so would completely lose reverse capability. To keep reverse, would have to replace the entire transaxle, add a mechanical gear selector, and reengineer the engine mounting by 90°. All of that work, and you'd still have the same top speed.

I'm quite sure this is not the way you make money. But that's also really ok! I like your hand-on approach to get old but nice stuff working again. I'm also curious about your work on some of the nice cars I peeked during watching. Or is that beyond sharing? No offense; I like your style and thank you for sharing your adventures with us.
