Default Dana Spicer Rear End??

I recently recieved an older cart frame with steering, wheels and rear end. Im trying to determine what differential I have and all i have is that it is a Dana Spicer 11 bolt with the following markings PAT 3905089 --- 12 18 82 ------820331 1 -----12:25-494 and an 8 83 does anyone know where i might find some info on this. or atleast a way i might be able to identify the manufacturer of the cart. the frame is steel tubing 1.750 O.D. it is 101" long and the rims are five bolt. if anyone could help it would be appreciated Ive spent two days now sifting through google looking for info to no avail.

Thanks

Sounds like a yamaha. Yamaha carts have round tube frames. The five bolt wheels throw a kink in the yamaha theory though. Pictures will help more.

I have no idea what that is. If I were to guess, I'd say it's a Pargo...maybe.

one other note is it had a front shell on it that resembled more of a truck front end than a typical golfcart (being short nosed) at any rate Im looking to get this into a driveable state again everything that i have on it seems fine the differential might need a new oil seal as it started leaking on me once i had it off. I would like to put a gas engine on this but am not sure how i want to tackle this. either pickup a crappy rider mower and steal the engine and tranny or take it back to battery. I like the gas engine idea as i think i will get better power for the money. im kinda stuck in a rut in determining what to do for a tranny as i would really like to have reverse in this. anyone have any pointers. this is my first small vehicle rebuild and i have no idea what type of options are out there for rebuilds and modifications.

thanks again

The diff. looks like an EZGO or Cushman differential. It may be one of those industrial EZGO's used for moving heavy, large objects in warehouses.

As for a drivetrain, I have seen people use a 4-wheeler engine and tranny (with reverse) and use either a shaft or a chain to drive the input of the differential. I have also seen bike engines and trannys too. Just throwing ideas around.

I asked the guy who gave me this frame if he could find out who made it. so hopefully i can find something out, even with the ideas you all have thrown out i still cant locate it. nor the info on the differential. I really wouldnt need the info on the differential but the seal is shot and it would be nice to have a breakdown when i tear it apart. thanks for the info so far. just outta curiosity has anyone ever bolted a VW bug engine to a cart before. hehe

I'm trying to remember the history lesson my father-in-law gave me, but one of the early golf cars used a automobile rear end, and they just cut the axles shorter.....
