Default Hello

Hello everyone. I just picked up a yerfdog 2 seater with 6hp tecumseh. Wow , this thing goes through the trails like a mad dog. I never realized a go-kart could go through the trails. I'm excited about upgrading it but first I have to figure out size belt for the centrifugal clutch. The belt I have is to big and I'm losing power on the hills.

It's not a centrifugal clutch, it's a torque converter. But tomayto tomahto.

Let's see some pictures!

Genuine Comet Torq-A-Verter, mang. Or at least the cover is...

You have a good score in your possession.

P.S. this new guy is already posting pics with no issues, not to mention I didn’t have to hurt my neck to view them. Color me impressed.

Have a look here for the type of bely you need. You will need the center to center distance between the driven and driver and then use the table to check for the belyt

Good find!
And good job with the pics, oriented correctly right off the bat!
Some people have problems with pics turning up sideways.

Yes, I have been told it is genuine comet tc. It's been sitting in a garage for years.
