    EZGO ST 480 16 HP Vanguard Lost Spark

    Any opinions about maximum “safe” rpms under load for the 16hp 480 vanguard? I am running about 4300 at 26 mph with 22” tall tires. I put a stock txt driven clutch (36 degree cam) on it since it had way too much torque with the 28 degree it came with. I did zip tie the governor and installed a...

    Starter Generator Rebuild

    Starter generator rebuild looks pretty straight forward. I have 2 that need work. One is weak and won’t turn under load, my guess is needs brushes. The other has a noisy bearing. The replacement bearings I see online look like a pretty common bearing. I may even have one on hand. Spoke with a...

    High Speed Gear Installation

    Got it done in time for a long ride last night. Had to play with the driven clutch to make up for some torque loss. Got that dialed in with a heavier spring rather than stock spring and 28 degree cam. Went from 26 to 32 mph at rev limiter and great torque. He loves it. No leaks or noises from...

    High Speed Gear Installation

    Perfect, we did get it apart by tapping gently, we have 3 sets of eyes on how it came apart and can see how it needs to go back together. I plan on using evinrude gasket compound to re seal it. Love that stuff.

    High Speed Gear Installation

    My son is attempting to install these in his 2000 EZGO TXT. Can’t get the case to split. Any tips or tricks/advice on high speed gear installation? We have the axle out and have good access. Thanks.

    EZGO ST 480 16 HP Vanguard Lost Spark

    Removed the shroud and found the grounding wire for the coils was linked and pretty oily and :censored:ty looking so I cleaned it up a bit and spark came back and it fired. Pretty happy I don’t have to dunk with the coils at this point. Thanks for the quick reply Nubs and hope you enjoyed the popcorn.😉

    It is a universal riding tractor blade from FB market place that I modified to work. Only 48” wide, didn’t want a huge one that would make the cart have to work so hard. Paid 150 bucks for it like new. Winch came from Nards.

    EZGO ST 480 16 HP Vanguard Lost Spark

    Thank you Nubs. I will look at it tonight. I wonder how the kill wire would have been energized, I didn’t change anything.

    EZGO ST 480 16 HP Vanguard Lost Spark

    Was cleaning the engine on a EZGO ST 480 16 HP Vanguard with a rag and poking around the front of it and now it lost spark. I may have seen a spark but am not sure. All the sudden it would turn over but no fire. Verified no spark both cylinders. Verified compression at 152 and 158. Seem like...

    It was FB actually. Pretty happy with it after cleaning it up and changing all the fluids and filters. It runs excellent now. Never thought I would ever own 2 Workhorse carts. Nice to hear from a fellow Hollander!

    Bought This EZGO ST 480 Today

    Good to hear, I paid 2600 but it was a pig. A little elbo grease and it cleaned up well. Does have a bearing in starter generator starting to whine, so i will have to address that. No other issues.

    Bought This EZGO ST 480 Today

    My new to me EZGO 2010 ST 480 with the 16hp Vanguard I bought today. I had to pay a visit to the fine state of Illinois to get it, but very worth it. Has the locking diff, and is pedal start. It was dirty but cleaned up pretty well.
