    ARC Rod Bearing Replacement

    So I've got pretty much all the parts I need to start building the Raptor that Flyinhillbilly sent me, but I've got one critical question before I start: How do I replace the rod bearings? I've got fresh ones, but I don't know how to get the old ones out without prying on them and I'm not about...

    Bird Engineering Starbirds

    As it sits it's not worth any more than other yard karts, Bird karts arent particularly special or valuable, just solidly built and classic. As it sits I wouldn't pay much more than $50, but some people might pay up to $150, especially if it has all four wheels rolling. Restored minus the body...

    Bird Engineering Starbirds

    Yep that’s a Bird kart of some sort for sure! The straight front axle, the way the steering column comes through the floor pan, and the seat are definitely Bird Engineering since they’re extremely similar to my Starbird! Unfortunately I actually can’t tell you much else about it, there’s not...

    Quick bits

    Just plain old Home Depot low carbon flat stock steel. The idea works in theory but it turned out the forge wasn’t quite hot enough to fuse the plates together sadly, so I’ll be working with the bishop to increase the heat. Not giving up yet!

    motor help

    I recommend doing one big motor, dual motors can certainly work and it can be very cool, but it's so much more complex so I would recommend just doing one big one. 56T should get you going a lot better. If it doesn't then you'll need a jackshaft.

    motor help

    Sounds like you got a gearing problem. You've got a 4.1/1 final drive, and it looks like at least 20" tires, you need to get a bigger axle sprocket, smaller motor sprocket, install a jackshaft reducing setup, or get smaller tires, which doesn't look like an option. You'd be really surprised what...
