Re: WTB Recoil for West Bend 580

Look at chain saws & Tecumseh engines. Lots of them around but a lot of variations also. 2 bolt patterns and at least 2 depths of cups. Some cups are smooth inside & some have saw teeth.

Re: Thanks to the Furtches

Good for you Ted! Lots of stores offer curb side pickup, just call in your order or go online, pay for it with a credit card, go at the time they tell you & pick it up. Also uber food delivery service is getting popular where they will deliver it right to your home.

Re: Newbie needs help with MC-5 powered Kart

Man THAT IS COOL! :ugeek: The old photos are fantastic. Terry Ives is in CA to help with the engine. Don't even try to turn it over. Just unbolt it and send it to him. Contact info is in parts and resources. Is the clutch or gear missing? Kart looks complete. A good cleaning before you even begin to...

Re: WB 580/700 lightning bolt exhaust repops?

I thought I remember seeing one. But it was far from an original. Hard to get the die cast detail when sand casting.

Re: Pulling the Pin

I've used both WD40 or a shallow tray of oil to soak the gasket in before assembly. Copper stuff cleans up nicely.
If you want to use a sealer Yamabond is grey & works well and is easily removeable.

Re: COOL Wheels

6th wheel from top is what I have on my dead axle 58 Handock Diesel. I believe they were aircraft wheels but they are heavy so not sure.

Anyone know what the bottom picture wheel is? Looks like Margay rims bolted to a hub I am not sure of.
