Re: New Member

Well, Dave, welcome to the fray. Until you make your mind up as to what era you want to be a part of, you will be overwhelmed. Vintage sidewinder or REAR engine? Foreign engine or American reed valve fan cooled engine? Serious racing or having fun with other folks? There are definite advantages to a...

Pro/Engineer CAD

Do we have a Pro/Engineer Wildfire operator among our Vintage Kart ranks? I run Wildfire 4.0, and I just finished a quite busy drawing of a complex part. I need to copy the part file under a new name, and I need to copy the drawing and rename it also. It must still remain associative. I'm aware it c...

Jerry Solt

G.W. posted on vintagekartforum.com that the great Jerry Solt of SAE fame passed on the 18th. I didn't know him well, I only saw him several times at TBO. He was a decent sort of fellow with a good mind for practical design. He will be missed. :( Ted

Re: My Latest Restoration

Very pretty, Scott. A good set of 5.8 Mc10's should easily put a hurtin' on twin Mc20's. You're a real artist! Ted
P.S. You're gonna make a mess of the inside of those head shrouds!

Well, if anyone knows how to get paint to stay put, it is Dean! He does it for his daily bread, and his karts always look super. Ted :)

Re: McCulloch Yellow

Terry, I only powder coat shrouds. I have not had a painted block since the early sixties. BTW, I use the Kimberly Clark Wet Task plastic buckets with the pull up towels for cleaning the back half of the kart. You pour in your own solvent. I have one bucket with denatured alcohol and one bucket with...

Re: McCulloch Yellow

Hey, Bob. Rustoleum's nowhere near as fuel proof as powder, or as the original Mac paint. I think Mac used a diamond compound in their paint! You couldn't get it off with dynamite. The RAL 1023 powder does very well, of course. About all that gives powder a problem is the carb/brake cleaner spray. A...

Re: McCulloch Yellow

Alan, paint is Rustoleum Sunburst Yellow, powder coat is RAL 1023. There are any number of more or less wrinkle black powder coat types available. Some are way too wrinkly. Mac used slightly different paints over the years, but the Sunburst Yellow is quite close. My Mc5 shrouds are RAL 1023 powder, ...
