Well, alright- but you know you will always think about a DJC diesel with split manifolds on it.

That little thing would probably be quite a rocket with 20hp powering it!

I saw an EZ-Go Golf Cart recently in a salvage yard. So, used ones & parts are still around.

Pulled the engine and trans out today.. surprisingly only a few troublesome nuts and bolts considering it was under salt water and never washed off..

The inside of the trans was full of water.. but very little rust on a few gears.. that I scraped off and cleaned with starting fluid then pooper oil in it.

Going to pull the trans off the engine tomorrow and see what size shaft it has and hopefully the new engine my friend has will work with it.. I managed to find break parts and a new clutch ( if it needs one) that would cost me about 600 for everything.. plus 500 for the new 20 hp engine.. but id look around more before buying them at that cost..

I'd suggest checking the differential and flush all the brake lines out. Those three wheelers are fun to run around town in. Is that rig licensed?

Will do on the 3rd member.. it's getting all new breaks and lines.. I can register it here as a motorcycle I think.. they even have extra large sidewalks I can drive it on.

Soo.. if you guys had got this.. and was told it was under 2 feet of salt water for a day.. and never has the oil drained would you think it was toast?

I was removing the trans. And trying to get the clutch bolts off the flywheel and to my utter shock and disbelief the dang engine turned over..

After scratching my head for a min.. I drained the oil.. got at least a 2 liter full of salt water before any oil.. removed the heads and got some salt water out of it.. with a bit of oil.. looks like someone dumped oil in the cylinders, not much but A little.. one of the bores is questionable but the other seems ok.. this engine may be a runner again..

No stuck valves even tho one of the exhaust ports was full of sand and crud..

I'm just shocked..

Wow! I'm surprised it is in that good condition. Even the "bad" cylinder looks like it will clean up, at least from the pictures. You may be in luck as far as the engine and tranny go. On the other hand, you are going to need a sand blaster, a LOT of sand, and a lot of time to clean the corrosion and rust from all the outside metal.
