Thanks man, will do! Does it sound like i got a decent deal? i hate to know ive just wasted a bunch of money on a cart that potentially is a time bomb or paper weight on the reliability of trans. But the enclosed cab and large dump bed had me drooling over it compared to just your standard golf cart.

Have you ever had any issues with your buggy?

No issues in 10 years. It's a pretty rugged machine with a honda motor. I'd buy it again for that price. That Curtis steel cab alone is about $4k and 700hrs is nothing for that motor.

ok you are making me feel better after all the bashing posts and reading ive done over the transfer case. Mine doesnt have a spring that mounts to the middle of the governor plate to the arm. Going to see if I can find one in the shop tonight.

In addition to the modifications and restoration techniques you shared, I replaced the ruined stock Honda engine with a Predator 670cc to increase the hp a bit at a relatively low cost and also had to swap an obsolete transfer case with a gearbox built by Ingersoll-Rand that was originally installed in a Club Car Carryall 1500.

The machine has hauled my little family of 6 up rocky rivers in the mountains, carried us through monsoon mud in the desert, made mailbox runs at the hand of my 4 year old, and is everything I hoped it would be.

A few shots attached, many more here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nuxq0f1v5...cyaFZNeRa?dl=0

Thanks again,

Where did you find the rear struts? Nice looking buggy man!

I ended up getting one loaned to me by a family member recently and found a "project" one on marketplace a week ago. Drove a couple hours and grabbed the second one knowing how hard they are to come by. The project one had the motor pulled due to an "oil leak" and was missing a rear diff lock solenoid. It did come with ROPS, rear hitch and front brush bar / headlight guard.

I swapped the accessories and using some of the tips on this forum have done the washer CVT adjustment, installed some alternate parts from Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H7SR8WT 2006-2022 Can-Am Commander Outlander OEM Front & Rear Differential Bellow

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0BRKVYXYV Ezgo Txt Spring Bushing Kit, Golf Cart Rear Leaf Spring Polyurethane Bushing and Sleeves - These fit the front A-arms too

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019XDDCGI Brake Pads BP-10 6407 - Wilwood

For a differential lock solenoid, I went the cheaper route of a P610-C1V12 Trombetta and a three pin Weatherpack connector for about $110. You may go with a China made solenoid to save a bit or for even less money maybe try wiring up a D610-C1V12.

Have some carb parts coming and will soon have that rebuilt, too.

Sure looks to be a tough machine with the galvanized frame, Wilwood brake components, braided steel lines, etc. It will be a handy and hopefully trouble-free addition for work around the property.

Well that didn't work as I had hoped. The P610-C1V12 isn't a constant duty solenoid and it quickly burned out from overheating. Going to look for a China replacement of the original because the OEM style are getting up to nearly $200.

Look for a D500 Pull Solenoid (about $99 on Amazon). Make certain that it's adjusted properly. When closed (pulled) it needs to go "all the way in". If I recall, higher amperage during the "pull" - amps drop once at the end of the stroke.
