30 series belts will probably not hold up to a 13hp engine, for very long. Tops is supposed to be 8hp.

A quote from a man who almost killed himself on a 50hp mower because a TC capable of handling 18hp locked up.

They stated that it was the engine's fault. oil on the TC but still. Dumb idea almost ending really bad. looked cool but poorly designed, like half their stuff lol.

They probably could avoid 99% of their problems if they wouldn't half bake their builds. Keep saying "It'll be fine" and I'll guarantee, next time you'll probably be in the ER.

Anyway, any updates yet?

https://www.gokartsupply.com/mobile/4044seri.htm might be a better idea to get a 40. Excuse the mobile part, I'm mostly on my phone on here.

They've got them in Florida. But could you give us a bit more detail on what happened with the chain and the clutch and the frame. And to quote a star, "your words make my head sad."

Well the yerfdoges rear sub frame cracked and broke right on a gusset its to wet for me to take a pic because i dont want to sink in the mud. And how the subframe twisted from that the chain hits the clutch and wont allow it to move

Default Its alive!

so it runs now yay! i had to make a notch in the idle screw so it would start and run. also i had to make a new bushing for the tc because the one that came with it was for a 3/4th inch shaft and mine is a 1inch, so i used bmx peg and cut it for a new one. im going to do my best to make it smooth enough so the tc doesnt engage when started. but i also need a masterlink, and have no money for that. Heres a video of it running i got my throttle arm working too!

Default Update 11!

Been a while since i updated...
Currently the battery is dead and the engine wont charge it enough because it still runs like crap. If anyone wants to help me out and find an subaru eh41 carb i really really need one mine is junk. My grandpa is almost done moving to his new house and i struck a deal with him im giving him my manco 445, and a crappy frame i got for just the engine off of it, and my manco mini bike with a 3hp briggs. Which means he is fixing everything wrong with yerfdoge, my kenbar and swapping my rat mower. And for those who thing im not gonna help... **** ya im gonna help im not letting him have all the fun!

Well yerfdoge has been sitting because i dont have a battery charger only a jumper and the tire went flat in the front also the large zipties holding the gas tank on broke.
How would i mount a pulse fuel pump up i dont know much how it works but it came off a honda 5hp i need to mount the tank and a pulse fuel pump so it gets a steady stream of gas and doesnt do a stupid pulsy thing.

Well I traded my bristers thunder kart for an 8hp briggs straight piped, after market carb. Pretty sure nothing works yet I can't bolt it down or anything so I think I'll trade for the guys other big block briggs. I may also trade the subaru for something else of his. But here's a current pic I'm diggin the exhaust.
