I have to ask, though, why is the engine plate sideways?
My Stove Was The Hottest It Could Be It Evaporated Very Fast, And As For The Engine Plate Watch The Video I Uploaded A Few Post Back And It Will Explain It All

So that's how you clean parts: make a soup.
Thanks for the tip, my aproach to use warm water and detergents didn;t work on my parts.

You boil your carb in lemon juice. The rubber and plastic parts are not good to put in there

This is were the engine sits and how much space I have for exhaust system to past behind the back of the seat before I bend the the seat bracket for more support for the seat ,to delete the left over space, and so i can have more space for the exhaust system.

I Cleaned And Honed My Left Side Cylinder Today In Automotive Tech Class ,I Did Not Do The Other Cylinder Because It Was Already Honed And Clean When I Bought it.

Just a little tip on cleaning your honed cylinders, take a clean white lint free rag and put some engine oil on the rag and wipe the cylinders in the direction of the hone crosshatch in order to remove the embedded grit from the hone until the rag or rags no longer picks up any more grit, otherwise the grit that is left in the crosshatch in the cylinder walls will put undue wear on your brand new piston rings. You can clean the cylinders out with solvents, soaps, etc, but the only way to get the grit out is with an oiled rag. If you think your cylinders are clean, try this and see how it works.

I don't know where you got the idea that following a straight line was the proper way to lay a weld, but, while better that the crap the guy you took it to was doing, it's not. You need to find somebody that actually knows how to weld to help you put together your cart and teach you the basics so that you don't have a bunch of misinformation in your head that will result in a well designed go kart falling apart due to crap welds.

OK I will see how it goes and do some more research on welding, but it should hold for now

I Looked Up several welding videos and still says most I already know, and my welds are pretty good for a amateur first time welder and should hold.
