I got a 1 -3/4 one (smallest I could find) for about $18! I'm thinking on possibly using it on my 400cc subaru. Clamping it temporarily to my pipe, it's quieter than a straight pipe but still...

About 10 go karts break every day out of the 75 or so we have so we're always busy. They're run as much as 16 hours a day so parts wear out quick, idiot kids won't stop spinning people out which...

I actually have 2 megasquirt v2.2 ECU kits (sorry not for sale!) One will probably go on my big block caddy, but I'm seriously considering running megasquirt on my 13.5 hp subaru. It's a natural...

Yep,the engine I have is a normal pushrod ohv, which is being phased out for their newer 14 hp SOHC motor.
Considering how long and hard I've pushed my cheap intek and it's still in great shape,...

As fun as it sounds don't become a go kart mechanic at a concession kart track. (that's my job) You'll never get filthier than there and the pay is crap. Plus you need all your own tools, but...

The subaru's prettier than the gx390, I think it's the cast aluminum valve cover instead of the single bolt steel cover that does it. It's also slightly bigger at 404cc.
It's got a crazy big...

If possible try to avoid using a torque wrench for busting off stuck bolts and stuff, they can get out of whack if yanked on a whole bunch. Just get a big cheap breaker bar.
How's it coming along...

Sorry for the pic size... The forum I'm on most is vbulletin like this one, but will automatically shrink the pics smaller unless you click on them.

Still pretty new here and I haven't shared a whole bunch yet, so here's a couple of the engines I've been playing with recently.

Be more like 5x a NOS shot, nitrous is less than 20% oxygen.
The combustion would be so hot it'll burn right through the piston immediately.

If you know of a machine shop that won't charge you an arm and a leg take the broken shaft there and see if they'll make you a new one from some hardened bar stock or something.
There's no...

Yep, I meant tranny shaft, from my torq-a-verter CVT drive. Get one of those and you'll never want a normal clutch again when the kart threatens to pull the front wheels and still gets better than...

If you're determined keep plugging away at it, it's a great learning experience at least. I've pulled out and put engines in about 6 different cars by now, both FWD and RWD. No matter how good you...

If you put it on the shaft than you'd have a bit of chain that's turning all the time the engine's running, which could be worse as far as safety's concerned and you'd have a bit of chain that would...

You still having problems with it revving right away? If the carb is just hooked up to a fuel line and nothing else, fab up some sort of throttle return spring to hold the butterfly closed.
