Hereís the linkage on my 3 horse Briggs. I think itís correct, it runs fine. Although it might not be 100% accurate because it was taken apart and put back together by a high school small engines...

Often times it is very very hard on torque converters or snowmobile clutches to run wide open throttle with no resistance. I assume you just had the rear end on blocks or stands? When you get your...

Yes it darted around a good bit, but the rears had so much more traction that it kinda just went pretty straight no matter which way the wheel was turned.

While it sounds crazy to say, it really didn’t accelerate that bad! 0-5 mph is a little rough. But the tires are so big that you can just reach over and spin the tires by hand while you’re in the...

Well I have hydraulic disc brakes, which with the normal 18Ē tires can lock them up on dirt and stop on a dime on pavement. However, with the 500 lbs of rotating mass, they didnít really work. Which...

26” tires are pretty large, with an 7:1 ratio at 3600 rpm you’d be doing around 40 mph. That’s some pretty tall gearing. My guess is that your engine doesn’t have enough power or air flow to run any...

A cb550 motor is a heck of a lot of power for a go kart. They probably make somewhere around 50-60 hp?? They are also pretty heavy. Then you also have to worry about shift linkage, clutch. It would...

Yes it is pretty aligned. Maybe not perfect though. I think the main reason it came off was because it stretched a bit. But with #40 chain I know that it will be much better about staying on the...

They definitely don’t have the torque curve of a normal diesel. The engines have a relatively short stroke, so they don’t make heaps of low end torque. They really like to run 2500-3500 rpms. I’m not...

You’re just fine. In my opinion anyway. It might be a bit rich, but as long as it revs good and doesn’t sputter or ever lose power, it’s not a problem. You might foul a plug here and there, but rich...
