Default Clutch sprocket not lining up!

Hi guys, new to this forum. I need some advice and or tech help. The clutch sprocket on my 212 cc predator is not lining up with my wheel sprocket. Wheel size is a 4.10x3.50-6, dual flange hub. Furthermore, the brake band doesn't line up with the drum either. Please tell me what in doing wrong. I've uploaded some photos for your reference. Thank you in advance!

Yep, it's not lining up.

Is this a homemade kart or what?
I'd like to see similar pics but with the wheel taken off, e.g., let us see the axle.

I figured it out! It was a silly mistake. Hub was on backwards . The shorter end of the hub had to be pointing towards the frame. Also had to install shorter bolts. And yea, believe it was a home built. I was gifted a bare frame. Stared fixing it up.

Actually, I don't think that was homebuilt...
That steering column looks professionally made.
Can we see some more pics of the kart?

Looking at the frame rails and engine mount, compared to the steering, pedals, etc, I'm going to guess the front half and parts of the rear are factory built, but the frame has been lengthened and modified.

Either way, it's a nice looking kart.
