I don't know about the truckster but it didn't take a lot to make the golf cart street legal. I just put one of those little dynamo's on there and have plenty of power for lights and anything else. I love those things as they very small and will put out up to 20 amps depending on which one you have. I use the JD style regulator now and with much better results. 

  I live just a mile from town so it gets used a lot. I need to get it painted this summer  now that I'm through with the modifications.

Thanks for sharing that, Chris... People do lots of things with golf carts these days.  I'm leaning towards a Cushman truckster with a cab and a bed--- be able to haul things from the garden spot to the house, etc.

Well, the taper adapter from Pager450 wasn't the right size, though it will work on twin Kohlers and B&S with tapered shafts.  He graciously let me have it and the engine.  Using the Adapter actually results in a straight shaft, although it's about 1 1/4 inch diameter.
