Got my tc in today, 1 inch 30 series to go on the briggs, need the sidecover off the other engine at the least or going to do a crank swap. The snowblower engine only has 3 bolt holes for mounting it.

Got my torque converter mocked up. Need the crank off the other engine because this one looks cleaner and has less rust/corrosion.

Hub is less bent than I thought, just a tad off. Should be fine. Going to be mostly offroad.

Got most of the way through swapping the side covers before I found out that the other cover was too wide.
Can I run the tc with 3/4 bolts? Doesn't havevthe 4th hole.

Looking good! I don't see why three bolts wouldn't hold up on the t/c. Btw, I just picked up another small frame dingo like this one, old Tecumseh 6hp, still turns over but someone messed up the choke and throttle stuff, so no idea if it runs. Appears to be mostly original but missing the roll cage, $80!

Getting all the good deals! As soon as this is running I can clean up a good bit of my workspace and get it to be somewhat reasonable. Too many karts and parts and not enough space.

Thinking of going back to the original plan of gx160 on the dingo for now, need to get parts for the 8 and the subaru can go back on the other kart.

Getting there. Need to flip the left axle bearing, move my sprocket back, and get my brake together.

On my local Craigslist right now there's the same kind of Dingo, without any cage. They're askin' $550 for a fully running Predator 212 Dingo. Too high for me, but it is my favorite model of Dingo. It's also got a few(if not all) of the original hubcaps!
I would love to get it to bang around on, but I don't have that kinda money, and my parents want me to clear out 2 projects before I get another one.

I have a snowblower and 6 karts, I can't get any more for a good while. Need to sell some.

I have the old "cage" sitting in the attic, for when I'm done with the rest.

Moved my hub back, put a chain on, tightened the tc nut, amd spent time working on my truck. I sanded and painted where I had primed (corners of the bed), and painted them. Hard to notice a difference from far away.

Nice!
Are you going to wire wheel those front wheels? They look a bit rusty.
Also, how many teeth on that sprocket?

Original paint on the fronts. The gold on the cast wheels. I'll clean them eventually. Before you say anything about my gear ratio, it's 9 to 54 and it's way too high. It's what I have on me at the moment but will probably get 8 to 60 if possible.

Awesome. Good to see it up and inning. 60/8 feels really good. I have it on a kart with 20” wheels.
