EZ Go 295cc Gas Rebuild

Rebuilding gas 295cc engine. Per service manual there is a special too to hold pulleys in place when installing the timing belt. Where do you get the tool, E-Z-GO P/N 27851-G01? Or, can this be done without tool? If so, procedure please?

Welcome to the forums.

Several of us here have generic knowledge in carts and these types of repair.
Buggies gone wild is a great blog site for more in depth help.

I checked into that tool. Apparently it's over $300 and is not really needed.
In the link below is an alignment diagram.
I also read during rebuilding of that engine that you pre-prime the oil pump.

How do you preprime the oil pump? Right before you put the clutch on?

Not clutch, I am on wrong end. It would be the hub for the fan.

From buggies gone wild.....
With engine in place and with everything hooked up pull the valve cover off. On the flywheel side there's an oil passage in the head. Put a vacuum over the hole and turn over the motor (with spark plugs out so the motor doesn't start) it won't take long and oil will be shooting out the hole.

It should also be mentioned in the service manual.

Have encountered another problem on this rebuild.
I have a 2001 ezgo gas, 295cc 4 stroke. Had a rod come apart and damaged the crankshaft. I have 2 new rods and new crankshaft. I took the old spacer off the old crank and installed on new one. When I install the crankcase end cover the engine locks up. I ordered new spacers from Textron in GA. I've tried new ones with same result. Now there is a .6MM spacer listed but the tech service at Textron said that part is not available. I've called several other places that deal with these parts and no one has it. Wondering if anyone knows of a golf cart repair shop or parts department that might have it. As stated this is a .6MM spacer, part # 26684G01. Thank you.

I see it's backordered or no longer available.
Amazon shows it in stock and when I went to order it.... stock was confirmed.
