The only part of the deal I'm waiting on is him to show up with them, it's 3 frames, and a truckload of parts and engines, one frame is another dingo, the other manco is a two seater, not sure what model, and the third is a crosskart frame, I'm giving the third one to a buddy of mine so I won't be overwhelmed, but I'll still have 6 karts and a trike project lol.

I own my property, in not done yet!

I'll get pics of the engine and such a little later, been getting axles and such installed, other than a brake I could possibly have it "finished" today, might take a slow maiden voyage if I do, been looking forward to it big time.

Here is the one that came with the 13hp. Hey dingocat, do you have a picture of the pedal assembly as it is supposed to be, mine was rigged up when I got it.

I might have one from when I first got it. I'll have to dig for a bit.

Couldn't find a clear pic. Took it apart too fast.

Bummer, still hoping the second dingo shows up this weekend, hopefully it's been left alone.

Well, the 9hp transplant is ready to go in, still need to rebuild the front half of the rollcage, and have had zero luck finding a brake caliper that will even work, might have to find an old busted motorcycle and rob the hydrolic set-up from it if I do that I may go full out and shoot for 75mph and street legal, wouldn't take much at that point.

Garage is a mess with everything going on, but the gx270 is in the process of going in till I rebuild the gx390, also added a larger fuel tank and the tray for it, still need to do something about the roll cage, but she is close!

When I was in paint and body I learned primer isn't always 100% needed, if most of the old paint is intact and no major rust, do a "scuff and shoot" the new paint will adhere to the rough texture of the old paint, going all the way to metal can actually be worse! Or you can use a cheap flat white or flat black, same overall affect! I hope it helps you out, I wanna see yours done too!

Had to flip the axle, I removed the old jackshaft the P.O. built and installed, shortened the chain, adjusted and everything is set and tight. Once I get the pedals in and at least run a throttle I'll take it for a short test drive. I'll probably finish fixing the roll cage tomorrow, and I'll correct the alignment on the front wheels shortly. I'll get some decent pictures out in the sunlight after she is all done. I have never driven this cart, so I'm super stoked!!

I got to run it! No brakes, but got it up to about 40mph before I chickened out, plus throttle sticks sometimes, steering needs work, and I think the torque converter needs a good cleaning. Other than that the little 9hp runs very well. A few little tweaks and she should be good to go!

As a side note, the 3 frames I mentioned in another ad are supposed to be arriving tonight, it's another dingo, a manco double seater of some sort, and a crosskart frame with a bunch of parts, I'll probably start another thread just for those, I'm giving the crosskart frame to a good friend, and my shaller cart to his son once it's running again, it was absolutely worth robbing the engine from it!

So I've fixed, jumped and cracked to frame, fixed again, then I rolled it! She is parked untill I finish the roll cage, install the 4 point harness, and it gets brakes. If I did all that in one day I can only imagine when I really get to riding it.
