86 club car big block conversion


New Member
Hello all,

My son's (18 - 10) and myself are looking to build another cart together. We have an older 18hp briggs, bored .50, runs great, sounds like an old volkswagen engine.We are trying to install it in a mid 80s club car, the rear end has the drive clutch and has reverse in it, The briggs has a 1" straight shaft, what is the best clutch to use for the engine? Looking to raise the cart, go faster and bigger. Any info would be great. I love this forum, I am really looking forward to building this cart with my son's.

We have already built 95 ezgo, 5" lift, lights, flares, 12
' rimms & 23 x 10.50 - 12 tires, red blue safety lights, siren custom built reese hitch and receiver, use it for work, will add photo later, looks like my patrol car, Zville, Oh

Thanks, Jimmy D
