    Manco Dingo Front End Pics?

    Recently acquired a Manco Dingo, and I would like some nice clear pics of the front end set up on one, as I am pretty sure mine is wrong. The tie rods tend to hit the back sides of the gas and brake pedals, if either are depressed half way or more, and then you steer. I find it hard to believe...

I am in the process of putting twin disc brakes on the rear of my kart and the old axle is in rather tough shape, and isn't keyed all the way, which severely limits where I can mount the brakes.
