I picked up the fuel pump yesterday from the parts store. It was $21.29 with tax. So hopefully once I put it on, the truck'll run. It might need a carb clean, but I'm hoping it doesn't.

Also, do...

You're right. I could have sworn seatbelts were on that list, but they aren't.

Kartorbust, it's funny you would say that it's the "new Bedrock edition." Pretty much Bedrock Edition is a renamed Pocket Edition, which I've been playing since version 0.1.2 Alpha (Released November...

I just found out that, as of tomorrow night, we're under stay at home orders. Good news is, the auto parts store is listed as an essential business, so if I have to, I'll still be able to get a fuel...

I don't see any problem with it. I reused the stock rod bolts when I rebuilt the engine on my minibike 2 years ago. Haven't had any problems with it, even at ungoverned rpm.

Not sure if it counts, but here's a pretty good pic of my minibike. This was taken just as a storm front was coming through.

I'll stick with the mechanical. It's $19.95 at the parts store and the holley is $50. Plus,I'm not exactly sure what I'd wire it to. There isn't much of an electrical system (there are 18 fuse...

I do have a pellet gun, but it kinda sucks. At 50 feet, it's got about a 9 inch wide grouping at best. I can beat that with a bow. But I like the tin on my garage to be free of holes, so I'll...

Oh yeah, that's got to be the worst alignment I've ever seen. You'll probably have to cut down the spacer behind the driven pulley (the one on the jackshaft). Could you get a pic looking at the...

Welcome to the forum.
You've got some nice projects. I especially like the blue Manco, and those Baja's aren't bad either. And what's the story behind the C10?

For me a gokart is freedom. It's the ability to go out and do whatever stupid stuff you want (drifts, hard cornering, 360s, etc.), and not have to worry about damaging a $200 body panel, or...

Yes, an engine output shaft does need a keyway to run a clutch, but most engines come with them. Unless the engine is from a generator (they have tapered shafts). There aren't any clutches out there...

I've looked for a sprocket for one of these. I still haven't found anything other than the originals for a 3/4 axle and 420 chain. At least you have the sprockets, mine came missing the jackshaft...

The brakes shouldn't be too hard. They're bicycle calipers as far as I can tell (I've got one similar to yours).
