That happened to me with one of my WB 820s but it only
ran real slow backwards.

Re: Dart Kart by SEARS ?????

Ted
Well said. Back in the 60s and early 70s it was like the movie AMERICAN GRAFFITI.
We had are HIPO engines and diners with CAR HOPS. Things will never be the same.
We are lucky to still have are karts and I am lucky to still have my 65 HIPO Temptest
plus my 70 Chevy pickup.

For my new CRG Tag kart I deal with Acceleration Kart Racing out
in Las Vegas. A few years ago they gave a super deal on the kart and
I get all my tech help from them.

Re: Terrible News - APS closes

With the loss of APS is there a kart parts supplier that REAR would
recommend. I will really miss APS as a parts supplier.

Here is a pic of my 1963 Simplex that I added onboard electric starters
that I got from E J Korececky several years ago. I still have the original
Service Manual and Brochure that I got when I bought it new.
