Yes my 'tractor' would have no business doing any real tractor work. I expect I could plow some snow with it, maybe pull a very small implement. If I did make a bucket/loader it would be pretty...

Oh yes that would be super cool, expensive, but fantastic! I would have to redo the rear axle drive too as a chain wouldn't work with the center pivot. Honestly at that point I think I'd go full...

I don't think the wide tires help, and the rim isn't as offset as the fronts. This makes the scrub radius much larger since I have to move the CV joints further from the wheels center line. This...

Kartorbust, I have no idea what the output is. I've run the lights a fair bit though, and the battery seems to be cranking just fine still so I'd assume output is pretty good. Glad you appreciate the...

The 4x4x4, a Tractor-esque Parts Conglomoration

Howdy everyone!

Been a while since I've been over here, but I thought a few of you might enjoy my latest project. I started it a little over a year ago, with little direction beyond wanting to...

Just a guess, but it sounds like you might have the battery wired to run through the coil. The spark plug should have continuity from the top where the coil plugs on, to the circular electrode that...

The Briggs is a good engine that will have more power to start with, but I don't know what's available for performance parts for them. I bet there's some decent stuff available. The honda on the...

Is it the ignition coil that's exploding, the starter motor coils, the starter solenoid coils, or the charging coils? Does the coil explode while cranking the engine for extended periods, or does it...

Too late for that! :D I did that on Monday, and I was even going pretty fast. The kart turned to that side, hopped up a bit, and came to a abrupt stop. Despite all that both I and the kart were...

I'll try to get some good ones, but I'll have to figure out how to mount my phone to the kart or my helmet. This thing is a ton of fun on ATV trails. It can even climb some pretty steep hills for...

Awesome! Thanks for finding that for me. Now back to the project.

It's finished, and right on schedule too! I took it out for a test ride and it's working great. It handles so much better with...

Most of that sounds pretty good, and I'm looking forward to see what you build! What kind of transmission are you planning to make? Do you have any models, and/or drawings? The transmission may very...

With the setup that you described, in an average go kart (relatively flat street use, maybe 12" OD tires, one seat, centrifugal clutch, etc.), 15mph is probably about what you would expect to still...

All I can tell you is that Honda did not make a "coolster" anything. A previous owner may have installed a genuine Honda engine, and it probably had a clone of a Honda engine in it from the factory,...
