    Predator 301 High Idle

    I'll try to find some old pictures and see if there's any differences in the throttle setup. It's highly possible something removed itself or came off while the engines been off the kart for all this time. If anyone else has a 301 with a working throttle/carb setup, would you mind sending in a...

    Predator 301 High Idle

    Disconnected, but unfortunately it’s still running in the 5000s. I suppose that rules out any problems with the throttle cable. perhaps it’s possible there’s some kind of large-scale air leak on the valve cover or something?

    Predator 301 High Idle

    Even more concerning is that when I started it up just after I sent this message, it began “idling” at 5000 rpm

    Predator 301 High Idle

    Sorry for the late reply! It’s been a busy week. I got around to running it today and sure enough that piece got moved back. Problem must lie somewhere else, then.

    Predator 301 High Idle

    There's only one other point of concern that I can think of, and its that one of the pieces on the carburetor never fully returns. I always assumed this was designed as I never experienced an issue with it in the past. I attached some photos to this reply showing you what I mean, and I may try...

    Predator 301 High Idle

    I've never adjusted or tampered with the carburetor before I encountered this issue. There is a chance that something could have been replaced incorrectly by the previous owner, though. The screw that I was adjusting was the one circled in the attached picture. From my research, I was confident...

    Predator 301 High Idle

    Hey everyone, Right now I’m running a modified predator 301 on my yerf dog 3020, and I decided to install a 40 series converter to keep up with some of the extra horses I’m making. However, the idle is running pretty high and the kart wants to take off on its own at idle. I’m measured it on my...

    New Brakes - Old Yerf Dog Frame

    I’ll have to try getting it off with heat. Would you usually heat it up with a blowtorch or something like that, or are there any household items that could get the job done? Thanks for the quick reply! I really appreciate it.

    New Brakes - Old Yerf Dog Frame

    Hey everyone, I bought this kart back and june and have been toying around with it since. I recently decided to swap out the terrible stock drum brakes for some new disc brakes. I have the rear axle off the kart, but one of the axle bearings is blocking me from removing the old brake. I’ve tried...

    Clutch not engaging on torque converter

    Hi everyone, I recently bought my first go kart from a friend. It’s in good shape and has a predator 301 on the back. However, the clutch on the torque converter was not engaging, and in consequence, no drive was supplied to the wheels. I found a thread from a few years back where someone had a...
