    Syncing 2 Engines together on go kart

    Just curious, what’s the best way to go about syncing 2 engines together to run on a live axle go kart? Do both engines really to be synced very close or is it pretty forgiving? I’m thinking of using 2 5hp Briggs flatheads if that matters.

    Go Kart Roller ID?

    Can anyone identify this go kart roller I just picked up? It has been modified a fair bit. I know the steering and the rear axle and motor mount is not original. I’ll get more pictures soon to help ID it.

    What to look for in a MIG?

    Hey everyone, looking at buying a MIG welder and not exactly sure what I'm looking for. I've used a few different brands at work: Miller, Lincoln, Esab. I'm not really partial to one. I'd like to get a 250 since I do enough welding and weld heavier material up to 1/2" plate. Is there any...

    Gas spraying out of gas cap

    Hey guys, I put a different gas tank on a Honda clone engine I had, and when I start it up gas sprays out of the vents in the gas cap. Can anyone tell me why this would be happening? Thanks in advance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    PVL Flywheel

    Has anyone been using the PVL flywheels sold at OldMiniBikes Warehouse instead of the ARC billet flywheels? Price wise the PLV is cheaper, and it says it is rated up to 15,000rpm. Just wondering if it would be a good fit for an ungoverned clone engine on a regular rider. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hilliard Clutch Sprocket Wear?

    Anybody else have problems with a Hilliard clutch sprocket wearing out like this? I thought maybe an alignment issue, but I checked the rear sprocket and the clutch sprocket alignment with a straight edge and it looked good. When you look at it the teeth do look evenly wore down. Is this a...

    How Much are you Milling your heads?

    I made up a tool like KustomKartKids for turning/milling a flathead Briggs cylinder head in the lathe, and I am wondering: how much material are you taking off when you are milling your heads? I don't mean for a racing application, just a general modded 5hp Briggs. I ran this head for a trial...

    Air compressor setups

    My dad and I just got a bigger upright 60 gallon air compressor for our shop and are wondering what sort of filtration set up we need. So far I have a regulator and filter, but I see things like air dryers and lubricator as well. What is necessary? What are you guys using?

    Old Skool Go Kart Dimensions?

    Does anybody have, or would mind taking measurements of a old skool bare bones style go kart like a Bananza or Rupp Dart? I am wondering what the length from front axle to back axle would be. Distance between the frame rails. How far the seat frame back is from the front axle. And the...

    I have a question about PayPal I can't seem to figure out so I thought maybe somebody on here would know. When I link a credit card to paypal it won't let me transfer funds from the card to my PayPal account. Is this normal? And if so, how do you pay for things after linking your card to PayPal...

    Tool Brands to watch for:

    I just thought that it may be a good thread idea to bring up a thread about some good tool brands to watch for that aren't as main stream as Craftsman, Mac, and SnapOn. I recently had a conversation with a old timer who used to be a Mac tools rep who was telling me about how the Stanley company...

    Well I found this nice little 49cc 2-stroke for my Keystone. Best of all it even has the recoil. :thumbsup: Compression also seems really good for a older used motor. Now I can start on my Keystone restoration. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
