Club Car engine swap Part 2, Header and throttle

See Part 1


Take the engines old throttle lever off, take the first section of the golf carts throttle cable, the one that ran from switch box to the rearends speed control, and connect it to the engines governor spring. Use the engines existing cable clamp to hold the golf cart throttle cable down. This is in the weaker part of the cable so use care when tightening.

This worked perfect! You can be easy on the throttle and just creep around, or nail it and it takes off wide open, and then the governor kicks in like normal.

The engines choke will need to be utilized for smooth starting. You could possibly use the factory airbox and “choke”, I havent decided which route to head.


I cut out a flange of 3/16″ plate and custom bent the 1-1/4″ tube.


We bent it 180 degrees to send it back under the engine


Then a couple 45 degree bends to send it out the rear


Muffler/silencer and tail pipe are still in the works
