Gettin' outta hand!

334452504709 Here's a fun example of someone who thinks that just because a part came from a kart, it's worth its weight in gold. Coupla beat-up old Manco wheels with worn out knobbies for $189+ shipping. What he wants for shipping is more than the wheels are worth. He lists them as RACING wheels! :...

Re: McCulloch 101b clutch help

Hey, Mike. If you want a dry clutch for Vintage, Max Torque makes a terrific one. You have to tell Jim Donovan whether you want an outboard or an inboard sprocket. Some engines sit so close to the kart that an outboard sprocket is necessary. You can find an oil filled clutch, but the learning curve ...

Dean, the Photon just needs wiping down, but getting alky and getting the kart to the track is the hard part. I don't think Ron needs to be lifting, and I can't any more. TJ

Re: Repop Azusa Velocity Stacks

Also, Rick is open to suggestions. I had told him that the repop West Bend mount side plates didn't have slots long enough to allow full chain adjustment, so he offers them now with the longer slots. They work great, and Rick's quality is very good. He's a first rate supplier. We could use more like...

Re: Repop Azusa Velocity Stacks

Why not just get some from Ricksrelics on eBay? Rick has plenty, and his stuff is good. TJ

WoWW!

195005869468 Here's another guy trying to rip off the VK community by selling a mucked up Mc20 with incorrect manifold, painted shroud, painted carb, wrong exhaust, and God knows what else, selling as "ORIGINAL" for five times what it is worth. I'm sure Bill M. did a fine job refurbing the engine fo...

Re: Starter for MAC93 pulley

Rob, that was the reason I bought the "Siamese" Coleman. If I had kept the duals on the Van Tech, I'd have needed to start them both from outside of the kart. There was JUST enough room between engines to get a belt in there, but it was a bit dicey getting the belt out after starting the right side ...

Re: Starter for MAC93 pulley

Scott, the "stick" starters are very easy and convenient to use, but a good one, such as Coleman, has a way to screw or otherwise retain the starter socket. It's no fun chasing a socket fifty feet down the pits! Ted :)
