Default Is predator 212 a direct swap on Dingo 286

Pretty much what the title says. I got the Dingo for 50$ but the engine is dead as a doornail and missing parts. I know the yerf-dogs have that issue where the engine shaft is 3/4" longer than the predators and it fits by a less than a centimeter.

Should be pretty close to direct. Came with a 5-6hp B&S engine and a 30 series TC.

It should be a direct fit as far as the "footprint" or the mounting base dimensions go, and having the bolt holes line up. No issue there on my 286...

However, the newer engines have more horizontal mass than the older engines--they have more girth with the top mounted gas tanks that can interfere with the frame sometimes...

Sometimes the cylinder canted over to 45° or whatever angle it's at interferes with fitment at the rear of the kart frame as well.

Than that settles it, on to Harbor Freight to get a HEMI 212 because my local store has alot of them.

Default Paint color of Manco Dingo purple.

The paint job on my Dingo 286 purple is quite good but some areas like under the seat and by the pedals are rusted. What color spray paint could I use to repaint those areas after sanding that would match?

that pic doesn't show up (at lest not in my part of the town)

Anyways.. IIRC
Rust-OleumŽ Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover, Gloss Purple (or was it "grape" ??)

should be fairly close to the original Manco color *shrugs*

BUT why not take a small purple part with you and color match it to the color cards
on the shelf (or have it mixed for you?)

Sorry if this didn't come out clear, but which purple is it. Is there a spray paint brand that matches the color very closely. I know I want to paint it purple .

Old paint on your frame and new paint you put on will not be an exact match even if you got the exact paint the factory used. Time, oxegenation, and UV have taken there toll.
Like Sid said take a purple part with you to the store and hold it up to the spray can lids. Or have a body/paint shop mix you some.

Unlike a vehicle there is no paint code we can look up.

Happy hunting.

Eh.
Possibly blue, maybe green. Not yellow, orange or red. Black is just a boring color.

This is an entertaining thread. I heard there might be pics but see none.

My vote is for ultraviolet.

If matching paint is crucial, you can always take a sample of your existing paint to a place like Sherwin Williams Automotive Finishes and they can color match it in a pint or a quart....even put it in an aerosol can for you.
