    Manco Dingo

    I've finally completed my Dingo project after five years of blood sweat and tears. Most, if not all of you know the journey I took to finish this kart. It is not really a huge accomplishment, as I have spent a massive amount of time due to my non existent income. I am still proud of myself...

    Manco Dingo throttle issue

    Wow! I jacked it up more than I originally thought then. I understood completely even while working that the throttle setup was wack, but thanks for the tip on the governor rod.

    Best way to mount a Torque converter to this setup?

    Wowza! That sprocket is gonna make it close, you’re going to have to run the torque converter straight back n down like a typical 30 series setup. That’s your best bet at least, if that doesn’t work then fabrications are going to have to be done. @KartFab this was built from your plans right...

    I wonder if a moderator could merge my two most recent threads. I didn’t realize the last one was still up.

    Manco Dingo throttle issue

    Oops! Forgot to mention I’m running a Honda GX390 on this kart. That’s what I’m having trouble with. I posted this in the wrong place. Anyways, here is what my throttle setup looks like currently (it’s very rigged):

    I geared the kart down to 8T jackshaft 54T axle, just had to cut the engine mounting plate off and move it forward a bit. Having my gear ratio like that makes the kart do wheelies easily. I like how this ratio feels compared to my 9T 48T gearing. The jackshaft flange is fine how it is IMO.

    Manco Dingo throttle issue

    Hey everyone! I’m back again and doing some tweaks to my dingo. I got it running and driving recently and did some wheelies on it today. I just pulled the governor out and started the engine back up and it ran at full rpm without stopping instead of idling. I figured I should completely redo...

    ah yes, the price tag. I was referring to that sprocket because it looked like my original one. I'll stop by the shop to see if they have the right sprocket/hub

    assuming that I haven't purchased a new sprocket yet, if i purchase this one what sprocket hub should i be looking to get?

    The kart needs a new sprocket hub and sprocket. What do I need to know in order to make sure that the sprocket hub I order fits the sprocket?
