Default Clutch Identification

I bought a 02 EZGO with a 670 predator engine. I see these don't have much charging output in them so I was gonna add the pulley that vegas carts has that goes behind the clutch and add a 1 wire alt... on their site it says it's made for the 780r clutch. How do I know what clutch is on this cart and if that pulley will work ?

Maybe post a picture of your clutch? If you are going to add the pulley why don't you put the starter generator back on and use it to start and charge?

Looks like it's a Cvtech 06 clutch

I think the V Belt pulley vegas carts sales would work but not sure. I emailed them but wasn't much help

Default Alternator setup on Predator 670

You are right about the 670 not putting out much power from it's charging system.... which is why I'm yanking the whole thing out (charging coils, voltage regulator, etc..) and am replacing it with an alternator.

I searched and inquired here and elsewhere to find examples etc but really didn't come up with much. I looked at the Vegas Carts pulley...they do make nice stuff, but IMO they're a little too proud of their stuff (cost wise...I'm a if I can make it myself i'll try kinda guy... ).

Here is what I came up with....

Bracket is made from 1/4 steel plate that I cut out. I grabbed the dimensions for the bolt pattern on the crankcase from one of the service manuals...and just prototyped out the rest on cardboard. Once I was happy with the results i cut it out of the steel plate.

The pulley I found on the internet (https://phoenix-mfg.com/V-Groove-Dri...el_p_1564.html). I had to machine down the center hub so that it would just mate up with my clutch and not stick out. 1" bore and 1/4" keyway...exact fit for the 670 drive shaft.

The alternator is a knock-off Denso Mini i picked up from Amazon. It's a 35 amp version...but there are lots to choose from.

Anyway...I hope this gives you some ideas on what's possible.

Good Luck

Smokey
