Thanks for sharing, that bed sure turned out nice. You swapped the rear axle? Or did it grow tires

The tires on the ol ford are Deestone D503 7.5-16 LT, Load E 10 Ply Bias , with tubes and flaps. All 6 delivered from Walmart lol

Nice, no , nobody will touch those

I did them myself, no worries. Clamp on chuck, low pressure in compressor , get far away. Mint.

Lol, we used to wrap a chain thru the wheel to keep ring in place, was always scary to hit ring with a hammer to seat it at times

Thank you!

Yeah lock rings are way safer than true split rims, but most people only know them by the name "split rims" , younger folk

True split rims earned the nickname widowmaker indeed.

After bleeding all the brown fluid out the brakes, I got them kinda working enough. Master needs rebuilt.

I think I will step up the jackshaft sprocket a tooth or two, it could use some more load, turbos love load , and cvts haha

But It can bark the tires on pavement!

Could use a touch more fuel, maybe colder plugs.

Not bad for a junkyard bone stock 600+ hour kohler, copper head gaskets, gov delete. 12+ psi peak boost, sent

The turbo engine is fun, but a little uncontrollable around the yard, and I dont want to take it on long trips.

So I happened to grab a ch670 command 22hp, that was sittin outdoors ya know. In the open, no hood.

With no valve cover or carb. And it was a junkyard motor to start with.
I got it going with hi compression courage 23hp heads , belt sanded, running 10 to 1

I dont think it runs too bad, does not have the same pull as the turbo, but I can have fun this season while I work on the EFI.

Much needed upgrade! Picked up a twin barrel intake from midwest super cub , duel 24mm carb from a 25hp briggs commercial, 6 degree advance timing key, and a commercial dual element air box setup.

Also got a carb elbow on the way, from a fx691v 23.5hp Kawasaki. It will adapt the carb inlet to the air box hose.

Should have wayyyy better throttle response/ preform better overall.

Plus I wired the kart, it now has a start button, and kill switch! The battery even charges, that I upgraded to a larger glass mat powersport battery that puts out 325cca. Starting to get legit.

It all fits! True dual barrel, nikki carb, mounts and matches the manifold perfect. Just need to pick up some longer m6 studs. Much better. The airbox will be directly coupled to the carb elbow, with a bracket to mount it solid.
