Check with the local golf courses. Someone may have one they will donate and any local repair shop may have one handy as well. Ask at the pro shops if folks bring their own.

We still have a long way to go. Atleast we now have the donor engine. We still need to pull the heads and stud it. We are no where close to what we need cash wise for the golf cart. Donations have pretty much stopped. but if anyone cares to help out please donate via paypal to c69ss396@yahoo.com.

I am not feeling the golf cart thing, but I am curious about what parts or how much more money is needed for the truck.

Tear down has just started and we have already found a problem. It looks like we're going to need a engine Harness. The donor engines harness was all cut up and the trucks harness isn't that much better... We are about $480 short from having enough to purchase another one. So if anyone can spare a few bucks We would greatly appreciate it. If everyone just donated a couple bucks we would have it in no time. Please help us out by donating what you can afford to spare via paypal to c69ss396@yahoo.com
