Re: Mounting the E65 on a Uni-Mount

Make an intermediate mounting plate from aluminum plate rather than change the original mount...........unles it's already thrashed.

Re: Colossal Clinton

Ted,
I've seen Tom Thorin's 502 on one of his Simplex karts. He had tried to disguise it as a Panther but the a Clinton person could see what it really was.

Re: Yazoo dragster

The Yazoo looks a LOT like the ROYAL NORSEMAN by Rocco Mfg. Was there a connection?

Hoffco Hurricane

I am looking for a Hoffco Hurricane. Problem is finding one that is complete and not all tweaked, bent up, and/or rusted out. Looking for a roller without engines but set up for duals. Thanks.

Re: Thanks

When I found this site was down the first thought that went thru my head was "I bet Jeff Campbell will straighten it all out and make it better than ever". And he certainly delivered. Bravo!

Re: Simplex Challenger

Look at vintage car parts sites, especially those who carry parts for mid 1950's Buicks and Olsmobiles. That pedal pad is among those offered for about $15 a pop.

Re: Connecting rod bolt

I bought the 1/4" drive socket for this from GEM a few years ago. Might be some still available .

Re: GoKart 800 Paint Colors

Ted..........are you sure the very early 1960 800's were not candy red? I ask because I've been criticized because my early '60 800 is monochromatic red and was told it was incorrect and should be candy red.

Vintagekarts forum down?

Is anyone having problems accessing the Vintagekarts forum? I can get to the main page but when I try to go to the forum, this message appears: Fatal error:
Call to undefined function main_menu() in /hermes/bosnaweb13a/b236/apo.vint19/forum/lib.php on line 2801.

Is it just me??
