Well, it's nowhere near as good as having actual suspension, however they do take some of the jolt out of riding.

You're going to need a 60-72 tooth sprocket depending on tire size. Gear ratio will just be too much for it. The old engine would have had internal gearing, or there was a jackshaft with compound...

LS swaps are done, overdone, and beat to death to the point they're just boring anymore. Even on a go kart. I can appreciate the time and effort that was put into it, but aside from that, I can't...

Unless you were building a reverse trike with a fat rear tire. Then, totally worth it. Otherwise, no.

300 hp on a one wheel drive kart, with a clutch that can only transmit 13hp.

With that much weight it's probably not even fast. Just loads of clutch slip.

~17 ft/lb is the spec if I remember right.

I don't understand how you're breaking loctite loose that easily, unless it's the wrong type, and it's not curing properly. Color isn't the only thing...

another idea:

Drill a hole in the end of the gear and tap it with 1/4-28 threads. Screw a grease zerk in there, and start pumping with a good quality lever grease gun. You'll effectively turn...

You'd think airgun manufacturers would be fitting airgun rated scopes to their airguns, but that may not always be the case.

Perhaps try an aftermarket airgun scope (not a super cheapo either)...

What sort of equipment was that attached to?

The fuzzy dark picture doesn't really help figure out how to get it off, but I'm going to say you probably need a gear puller. And probably some heat.
