    Plastic mtd fuel tank

    Is there any other way around these tank grommets. It appears like the seam doesn't let the grommet seal the hole completely and i keep getting a minor drip. I've tried two different brand grommets one was a bit harder than the other they were both new and two different barbs.

    Hs50 head swap questions

    What is it

    I found a rough almost bare mini frame almost identical to the pic. No idea what it is and would like some info before i pick it up. The upper part of the frame is bolted together by the axle(like the pic) and the lower bolts onto a welded tab at the neck. Thanks for any info

    Hm 80 recoil

    The hm80 recoil on my super bronc crapped out on me awhile ago. To save the ride that day i found that newer style briggs recoils fit and work rather well. Slightly embrassing and very ugly but it worked. I finally put a oe working tec recoil back on but not before i snapped a pic.

    Was this a kit or just home brew

    I picked this up about a year ago for the price of a cheap case of beer. The seller had bought a farm and said he found it in the corner of the barn. It certainly looked to have been there for a long while an he wanted nothing to do with it. The whole kart looks like vintage parts and appears...
