I got some stuff done today wiring, longer brake cable for drivers side, made inner fender wells fit with coil overs. Oh ya tried to start engine and found out bendix wasn't engaging:( unless i am doing something wrong?See the red wire that was attached to motor. I hooked that to positive and ground the cylinder and nothing?Pulled the starter and jumped it gear just spins and doesn't move forward to engage?

Tomorrow I will head to machine shop to have clutch bored and key cut. If he has not gone away for the holiday.

Any idea what size the crank shaft bolt is? thanks again.

The cart is looking good and coming along nicely.

Check the starter rotation to make sure it's spinning counterclockwise. If you have the wires connected wrong the starter motor will spin in the opposite direction and the Bendix won't kick out. It should be turning counterclockwise viewed from pinion gear end of the starter. If the rotation is correct it could be the Bendix is either stuck or bad.

That's good news, glad it was a simple fix on the starter. If you can, upload your video to youtube and if you copy and paste the link here it will put a thumbnail on the forum and will be able to be viewed without leaving the forum.

Good job! I wouldn't start it anymore though until you get a exhaust system on it. Speaking of exhaust what's your plan for that?
