Hot rod golf cart project

I have an old EZ GO utility vehicle in my backyard with a stripped rear end. I also have a 485cc Yamaha Phazer engine. I want to put the Phazer engine into the EZ GO utility vehicle, but there are a few issues that I need to figure out. The first is that I need a rear end. I have some spare golf cart rear ends with that same type of CVT clutch on them, but I think that they probably would not be able to handle the power of the snowmobile engine. The other issue is that I would like it to have reverse. I had a few ideas, such as using a rear end and transmission from a pickup or Suzuki Samurai and adapting the shaft on the transmission so I could fit the driven end of the CVT on it. This seems a bit too complicated and there is probably not enough room. I am wondering if anyone here has any ideas to get this thing working with a strong enough rear end and reverse, and possibly some parts for sale in the northern California area.

What about a rear end from a 4 wheeler ATV? I would think you could find one that is made for that size motor and will have reverse.

I don't think a 4Wheeler rear end would work, I used to race quads and inorder for it to work you would have to rig up a way to put the swingarm in with it also because the swingarm holds your axle bearings.

And I don't thing a little swingarm would hold up on a golf cart thing.
Plus if you were to be taking it off road you wouldn't have any articulation with a 4wheeler rear end.

I thought about using a 4 wheeler rear end, but the main problem there is that it is too small. I was also thinking that a rear end from a 4 stroke golf cart, such as a Club Car, that has reverse in the rear end. The only issue there is the strength. Thanks for the ideas. Does anyone know if a rear end exists with reverse built in? Kind of like a 2 speed rear end in a big rig or dump truck, only reverse is one of the gears and one that is a lot smaller.

It has been a while since I had that project. I ended up getting rid of it because I could not get the engine to fit. I tried lifting the rear of the cart to make more room, but things were just not working. I also was tried putting it in another cart that I had which had enough room, but the rear end in that one was stripped and I could not find another one anywhere. The only place I could find a rear end was at a golf cart dealer and he wanted over $1000 for it, so I ended up scrapping all of them and selling the engine.
