Default Help identifying converter setup

I bought a used go kart and managed 4 good rides out of it before the chain started walking off. At first I tightened up the nut and then noticed Iím missing atleast a snap ring that holds the shaft on the other end. Iím trying to figure out what parts flew off when the snap ring let go. Hereís a few pictures.

Do you know what kind of kart this is, model?

Jackshaft looks like it's missing a bearing.

Baja Trax 65 but I believe it’s not a factory setup. I think you’re right it’s missing a bearing and a snap ring. A quick measure with a mic shows 1.37” OD .625 ID.

Looks like you need a 5/8 x 1 3/8 sealed high speed bearing , I would replace both. Buy a 5/8 snap ring and make sure the nut on the other side is not very tight, pushing on the snap ring. Easy. I would also replace the nylon nut as that holds it on the shaft, and they wear out.

It looks like the driven clutch has sustained some damage. The spring doesn't look right either. It's probably a good idea to clean, lube and thoroughly inspect both drive and driven. All parts are available, it might be cheaper to buy new.

Maybe more pics.
