View Full Version : Ideas needed

04-26-2010, 05:07 PM
The clutch sheave on my golf cart has worn through. $400 for a need one so need some ideas of cheap fixes. Keep in mind its aluminum and on the end of the crank shaft so balance comes into play. Let the ideas flow.

Here's the clutch and my first attempt. Lasted about an hour then sheet metal ripped.

Get a brake rotor and weld it on ???

Just sayin

Spin a new piece overtop and get it spot welded on. Why does it have to be aluminium? looks like your peices would work but your using anealed aluminium sheet. You will have to temper it and deburr your edges to keep it from cracking

Could you convert it to a snowmobile clutch set up? More parts availability and probably last longer. :dontknow:

You can also use a go cart clutch for home build offroad ones. Take a hell of a beating lock in low and are reliable.

Some good ideas here.

Master P: don't want to spend that much money on this cart because it's so old who knows what will break next on it. I don't want it turning into a money pit. I got big red for that.

Always broke: Needs to be the proper angle so a brake rotor would not work.

I'll try thicker sheet metal with countersunk rivets. If that doesn't work aftermarket sound like the next best plan.
