Re: Home brew ethanol free gas

Have to give these gentlemen in the video props for thinking outside of the box. The current state of gas at the pump is a crime. Do not think that using a 'stabilizing' product is a solution to the problem also, there is moisture still in your gas. Since retirement I work part time at a equipment r...

Clinton Shakedown and Breakdown

Finally got the mighty Clinton bolted up. Had a few problems with the throttle linkage hook up so a new cable fastener at the carb and a new bracket at the manifold had to be fabricated. Once the cable issues were out of the way everything went very smoothly as far as the actual mounting went. Mount...

Re: West Bend 580 Exhaust Manifold Questions

Timothy, Not so sure what your general riding around consists of but without a doubt you will enjoy the performance upgrade of a open header Went from WB factory 'D' shaped muffler to a WB 'Lightning Bolt' factory open header and it was a day and night difference.

Re: Avon Antique Kart & Minibike Event May30-June1

Got the Clinton mounted up and fired up. She sounds good.

Time to test the engine mount, carb gasket sets and the home brew clutch so she'll be ready for TBO.

Will have a full test report in a few weeks.

Should be arriving early Friday morning.

Re: Can Someone I.D. This Kart?

Years back Don Distel use to bring a Century to TBO and it was a dead axle. Can't remember the braking arrangement though.

Bantams were square tube.

Re: Can Someone I.D. This Kart?

Tim, Might be a Century. If you go back into the earlier Karting Ohio threads there is mention of a lawsuit Rupp filed against Century for a patent infringement of their braking system. Your kart is not a Rupp but it has a braking system much like the one Rupp designed and filed the lawsuit over. R....
