that is exactly what I mean...the forklift scenario is dubious too because finding the scraps is impossible because we are like vultures here, so you have to know someone who has a forklift about to crap out and then pounce on it.

regarding the golf cart I was returning from a day of working on the boat(new bulkheads, chainplates, deck gel coat) on the coast and I saw a golf cart for sale on the road! I was so excited I almost peed myself, when I started asking questions about the motor the guys looked at me strange...

basically it has a small aircooled motor...must of been an old cart but the piston size was about 60mm...

I havent found an abandoned golf cart since...

well see what I can scrounge up
