this starter generator work on a 1976 HD even so the date say 1978?

BEST ANSWER: If you have a starter/generator system on your buggy now it will work, however the distance between the mounting bracket centers may need to be adjusted to ensure the alignment of the starter/generator with the pulley on your particular motor. The stater / generator is nothing more than an electric starter when energized in the "spin" mode and then becomes an electric current producer when driven by the carts motor. This unit can be used in multiple applications with mounting adjustments. If you could send pictures of how yours is set up I could better make an assessment of the level of difficulty in mounting it you may encounter. I hope this has helped.
I have an 86’ ezgo with a hitachi starter is this a direct replacement for that unit? Part # 1427060200

BEST ANSWER: The starter I bought from Buggies was slighty different from the original but not enough to be confusing..The starter I bought looks exactly like the one in the picture. It works exceptionally well
Is there a warranty on this starter? I believe I bought it in February

My 1988 Ez Go Marathon runs like new. Does not solve the 1988 Ez Go’s tensioning bracket braking issue but that is inherent with this machine. Either keep welding it or use a block of wood. No one seems to offer a more permanent solution. I would be the first to buy.

Works fine but as soon as I started the cart the 2 long bolts that hold the whole thing together vibrated out. I had to take everything apart again to get the bolts back in. I just hope everything on the inside is good and tight so I don’t have further issues.

Was a perfect match for my 88 ezgo Marathon 2 stroke. But just had the second one stop working last night. The last 2 work for a few months then just stop. :(
