Ehh, 1 1/2" is not a big deal.
As mentioned above the seat is adjustable, I forgot that at first.
The message is the same: It's small!

That's kind of the problem...
Practically no one makes 1 1/8" clutches, so it's down to hyper expensive torque converters, a snap-yer-neck electric clutch, or putting the clutch on a jackshaft.

Dang, I can't imagine why that thing would still be stuck. Keep applying PB Blaster into that key slot, and keep on with the heat and puller. That's all I can say.

Well then, if it's AC, you have two choices.
1. - Have a ridiculously long extension cable trailing you
2. - Have a ton of batteries hooked up to an inverter, not very weight efficient.

Race kart frames are designed to flex.
As far as why it only lifts the left, I dunno. Probably is set up for an oval.

NonononoNONONONO! NO!
Electric motors generate MAXIMUM torque right off the bat! So no, a clutch will not make an electric kart wheelie.
And anyway, you'd lose at least 1800 RPM of power when you...

The fact that it will run, then you can kill it, then it won't start is VERY odd. It sounds like some kind of issue with spark.
I assume you still have the low oil sensor, your oil might be slightly...

I think you have a set screw somewhere that you overlooked. Look for an allen head set screw. There may be more than one.

Honestly, I think if this Robron company was making karts in the 60s, there's a good chance Mr. Stanton is either dead, or in a nursing home on an oxygen machine.
Frankly, if you're not doing a...

Ahhh, it's one of the wiring nest ones. I'm looking at getting one of the nifty little inductive tachometers for my engine.
It still looks cool!:cheers2:

Valve Train Mysteries Solved!!

The 2 HP Briggs running then dying sounds like a condenser problem. Wouldn't hurt to overhaul the ignition.

That little "cover piece" was part of the master link. Measure the chain, and we can link up a bunch of master links for sale online. You don't need to replace the whole chain.
