Vital to any vehicle, shocks will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Although the process is mildly simple, without the proper installation, the items will not last nearly as long and could potentially cause damage to the vehicle in question. The seemingly challenging task can in fact save money in the long run as long as the person is patient in their work. A task that virtually anyone can do, the directions are pretty much the same regardless of which model of car or vehicle one is looking to repair. Since each vehicle is different, the manual might be a good companion to use while changing the items, but the guide on how to change shocks is pretty universal. In order to change shocks […]

Northern winters are hard on vehicles. There is a lot that can go wrong during the winter. There is snow to get stuck on, ice to slip on. There are a lot of unseen dangers as well. There is concern that the engine will freeze, brakes will fail due to freezing and the collisions that occur due to the black ice. Every part of the vehicle is at risk during the northern winters. Even the windshield washer nozzles are in danger of being broken or damaged during the harsh winters. Ice is the number one damaging factor when looking at a vehicle. Ice is the main cause of accidents in the winter weather. Ice can be impossible to see, such as black ice on the roads. […]
Once you’ve got the car jacked up, crawl under and locate the shocks. They can generally be located easily using the owner’s manual, and the specific location will differ depending on the make and model of the vehicle. The shocks will either be mounted at the top by a horizontal bolt or a vertical bolt that must be removed from inside the engine bay/trunk. Depending on where the shocks are, and how to remove the bolts, the process can range from extremely simple to extremely challenging. This is where it’s useful to have the user’s manual on hand. The next step in how to change shocks involves unbolting the nut holding the shock to the suspension with a standard socket set. Repeat these steps for each […]
Aside from finding a vendor that sells many different brands of parts compatible with your models, another good source for golf cart parts is shops that rebuild them. Some shops will not carry golf cart parts from older models, so the only way to get them is by finding a company that uses parts specifically designed to work with older models of golf carts. Many of these areas are great because they end up saving money in the long run and allow your old cart to run like new without making a large investment in a newer model of cart. Items such as rebuilt engines, golf car shocks, and steering systems will be much cheaper than buying a new set of these or building your own […]
When anyone thinks of a Harley-Davidson they immediately think of big bad motorcycles. Harley-Davidson are the most recognizable bikes on the planet, there big and they certainty are bad (in a good way). Usually when people talk about them they just call them Harleys, and your typical stereotype of a rider is a big with muscles loose jeans on, wearing a leather jacket, sunglasses of course, and one rough looking goatee to go with it all. Well what if I told you that one of the biggest portions of Harley drivers doesn’t look anything like that. Instead of Jeans and Leather, sunglasses, a goatee, and tough looking helmet, trade that all in for a nice pair of slacks, a polo sweater vest with a white dress […]
So, we’ve covered the history of the Harley Davidson golf cart and such, but we haven’t really gotten to where you might go about purchasing one of these fine old carts. As with just about anything that is no longer produced, it takes some looking to find a Harley cart worth buying. And along with some serious looking, you’re going to need a good dose of patience. I’ve always found that the best way to find things like this are to put myself in the mind of the potential seller. Think about the owners of a Harley golf cart. For one, they are not big golf courses. Any course that has carts they are looking to sell upgraded from Harleys twenty years ago. Who might own […]

William “Willie G” Davidson joined the iconic motorcycle maker in 1963, and he brought with him a lot of changes. One of these now-overlooked changes was the introduction of the golf cart division, a significant departure for the company. The earliest Harley Davidson golf carts are perhaps the most recognizable and revered. These, of course, are the three-wheeled carts that are prized by collectors. The company later moved to a more standard four-wheeled design. Though the three-wheeled carts may be more distinctive, both models have attained near-cult status as prized editions to the collections of golf cart aficionados everywhere. In 1969, Harley Davidson sold the devision to American Machine and Foundry Company (AMF). AMF proceeded to build carts for well over a decade with AMF Harley […]
