Re: Camping at TBO

Bob, all of us out here in coyote country would be awful glad to see you! Bring your helmet and jacket.. Plenty of 100cc fan cooled rides for you.
I think Charlie and Sandy are vacationing in the U.P. in Michigan. They have 50+ acres along Lake Superior. Ted

Re: Camping at TBO

Bob, Rob, Mike, Cathy and everybody that's heading for TBO: I hope all of you have a really fun time. Turn some laps for me and Charlie. I guess Al Klusman, Jack Canady, Hank and Marilyn Rotroff won't be there. Too bad. Eat some Lee's chicken for me and say "Hi" to all. Ron and Sue Cubel and I will ...

Re: Older model HL Tillotson carburetors

Remember, a number of HL's have a straight throttle shaft with no arm attached. You can get several different clamp-on arms through the various kart shops such as Comet Kart Sales, or look at EC Carburetor's website for selections. You may use one of these to customize your throttle hookup position....

Re: Older model HL Tillotson carburetors

Jeff, The RA should be a 100cc engine, and any HL will run the engine. Most of the Tillotson barbs in the HL series will run a saw of 80cc or more very well. The issues you may have are that you may need a primer bulb setup, and that the HL's have many different throttle actuation arms. The arms als...

Re: Clinton Shakedown and Breakdown

Bobby, that is beautiful! I'm glad it's working out well. I remember the aluminum Clinton flywheels weren't always reliable. I had fins come off the one on my converted outboard back in the day. That engine/clutch is in the pioneer spirit. If they don't make what you need, make it yourself! Ted

Re: Track master.

Looks like a Trackmaster to me. They were cad plated. More racer-like than any Track Rabbit. Ted

Re: Can Someone I.D. This Kart?

Timothy, the Standun karts generally had a much more "rounded" seatback than your pix show, and the steering hoop on Standun had a sharper bend. Standuns had a flat stock steering wheel center bar whereas yours is round bar. If you blow up the pic of the front view of your kart, it is obvious that t...
