Well, it's been a minute. Cart ran great up until this summer. To be honest, ran really great for still being a 1 lunger.

My batteries died in my run leader gauge over last winter and I failed to replace them. We went on a long round the country block ride and I think I may have over revved it down a big hill. Motor clattered, cranks over but blows compression into the crank case.

So to date its been sitting in my barn for a good 5 months. Time to inspect the damage.

Here is the carnage. I am assuming I over-revved it. Parts aren't cheap, $282 for the camshaft and $209 for the crankshaft separately.

I spent a bit of time researching and while this isn't a rare occurrence to strip these teeth, it is documented here on BGW a few times. I see an updated cam and crank kit that is about $300 total but it only shows pictures of the camshaft. Hesitant on the price difference.

All else within this engine looks great, push rods, nice and straight, connecting rod looks good. Slinger still in place, side bearings seem good. Very strange failure to me.

We were coasting down a hill waiting to slow down before I got back in the throttle. Once I did, it clattered for a few seconds. I got it stopped and pulled over and it would crank but no start. Pulled the lipstick and cranked with a pressurized crank case. Towed it back to camp, then it sat till I pulled the valve over to see valves were not operational.

I will reach out to him if I cant find something on the cheap. Scouring Marketplace on the daily for a parts cart or motor. If I cant get something within the next few weeks I will just buy new. Im sure I will be missing the cart Memorial day weekend....
