    On second thought, I don't think that picture is the correct one. Might be: https://www.bmikarts.com/Clutch-Mount-without-Jackshaft_p_5380.html?gclid=CjwKCAjwg-DpBRBbEiwAEV1_-GhoURKFmFPgLS2esQHheXC5cQZQ4pyC3JFHKg8LUC0FyTljIFSkNhoCuFYQAvD_BwE

    One internet source recommends using Asymetrical driver and driven pulleys. I didn't fully understand the difference in the two. Thoughts? And what teeth sprocket on the jack shaft, opposite the TC?

    Montgomery Wards T555

    I haven't totally made up my mind about running it on top, although I think that would be the easiest route. You mentioned finding the original mount; any idea where such a rare part would be? Did you buy your comet 30 series TC as a kit or each part individually?

    Montgomery Wards T555

    Awesome information! I didn't know there was such a big difference amongst the 20, 30 and 40 series converters. I will look for a jack shaft kit and mount on top. Although, I haven't completely made up my mind about the jack shaft original location or on top. My limiting factor is finding an...

    Montgomery Wards T555

    Thank you sir. I've watched a few of your videos of you ripping in the snow. Looks so fun! I wish the videos were longer than 0:45 secs though! So I have been doing a lot of reading on the internet to find out any details about this setup since I'm such a novice to this T555. Correct me if I'm...

    Montgomery Wards T555

    Great info! I need to stop and read this carefully while looking at the bike tomorrow to figure out what ideas your sharing. I’m too new for it to sink in instantly. Will a predator 212 push enough power or do I need to plan a bigger engine? I’m still trying to figure out how to create the jack...

    Montgomery Wards T555

    Thank you a million for the information! I'm messed around with mini bikes for quite a bit and feel comfortable with them. This axle and differential thing is uncharted territory. Go Karts have been around forever. Is it possible to build a NEW axle setup for more reliability? That was the most...

    Montgomery Wards T555

    Hello OldMiniBikes fellas. I just picked up a T555 from Facebook marketplace for $300. Frame seems to be in decent shape. The guy I bought it from said he got just a rolling frame and he rigged up brakes, throttle and engine. He got it operable but it’s quite sloppy. You can see here that he trying to...

    WANTED: Doodlebug seat. The newer curved.

    Hi all. Bought a doodlebug mini bike for my son. Great condition but the seat was eaten by the previous owner's puppy. I'm looking to buy one if anyone has one for sale. Thanks for looking.

    1 inch grip

    Thank you everyone for your input so far. I ordered some budget Harley grips for the 1" bars. I guess the cable issue will just be on hold until I get the grips. Maybe a local bike shop can help me out with a cable. I don't think i have to infrastructure to customize a cable.

    1 inch grip

    Holy Moly! that's a lot of options. I'm just doubting that the throttle cable male end will screw directly into the Harley throttle grips. There are definitely plenty of 1" grip options, just wasn't sure how to make a cable match up. Was hoping to use the one I have, but that may not be an option.

    1 inch grip

    Hi OldMiniBikes! I have a grip problem that has stumped me today. I am fixing up a K&S Hornet. I bought a predator 212 and a Mikuni carb. There are 2 problems: 1. The bars are not 7/8" size, they are 1". This greatly limits my twist throttle options. 2. The throttle cable came with a connection that...

    Mikuni 22mm

    I've been riding the bike around after completing it and it runs pretty well. I bolted the mikuni 22mm carb from affordablegokarts.com right up to the motor and it runs pretty well. i know this has been discussed in the past but i'm having trouble finding it. the bike runs better with the choke...
