Buddy needs a new EZGO engine, anyone have a good source to get one? I use to use Motors and More, but they seem to have gone out of business.

Do you need an EZ-Go engine or motor?

Pivotdoc,

It’s unfortunately a Robin 295cc engine.

You might try Buggies unlimited, I have bought from them in the past and always had quick shipment and fair prices

I think that Briggs Vanguard swap might be the way to go. One thing about it, it should speed up quite a bit!


Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right. Here I am.......

Breaking a rod in those engines are fairly common. I went to a Yamaha cart and will never own another EZGO

I bought another cart and switched motors and am having the old one rebuilt. Should be done in about a week or 2 and could be for sale

Golf Cart King still sells a new crank/rod assembly for the EZ-Go Robin 2-stroke, for $159.95

Golf Cart King EZ-Go Crankshaft Assy

Thinking I should buy one now for a spare Big Grin
(My 38 year old EZ-Go bottom end may not last forever).

A tip that may help those who have one of these vintage 2-stroke carts: Do NOT go by the Mfr recommendation for gas/oil mix, (my 1982 cart has a sticker that specifies 1 Oz of oil per gallon of gas. That is a really weak ratio of 128:1).
A typical golfer may not even get a cart up to top speed, and if they do, it is for a very short time. My cart survived several seasons at Bandimere Speedway in Colorado, which is carved across the face of the mountains, with all pits on the upper side. Like many tracks, the return road from turnout all the way to the lanes is a straight shot that is probably close to a mile long. Not saying I ever exceeded whatever the speed limit is on that road, Smile but I always pitted right by the turnout, and made countless runs to the lanes and back. The poor thing has also been entered in pit vehicle races, etc. Do your cart a favor, for how little fuel they burn - use a high-quality SYNTHETIC 2-stroke oil like Lucas, (not the generic $1 crap you put in a weed whacker or leaf blower). And boost the ratio to at least twice what is recommended. I use a 50:1 mix, it really doesn't smoke at all, and has never fouled the same spark plug that was in it when I bought it 6 years ago, (Goodness knows how old it really is). If you consider the fact that 2-stroke crank & rod bearings receive absolutely No pressurized lubrication, only what little oil the fuel mixture deposits on them, it just makes sense to help it out some.

I would check local classifieds as well. Sometimes you can get lucky with someone selling a cart who doesn't know any better and you can find one with the motor you need. Or ask your local shop. They usually have vendors. As mentioned above for parts like rods, brackets and mounts there are a number of quality businesses online. I always use Golf Cart Garage but BU and GCK are good too.

EZ-GO is inferior in a lot of ways. Electric and gas both. I have been working on a lot of them lately. Lot of folks don't fix them and buy new yamaha. Sitting here looking at an electric unit. 36v. They run the wiring around the frame and it chaffs, then shorts the wire to the frame. Seen it several times. You'd think they (EZgo) would be smart enough to know.
