    Clutch Positioning

    found the missing content allow me to put it in here where it belongs -sid- Yes this clutch came with 2 set screws. If those are clamped down on the shaft and keylock how does it get its play? And is the shaft bolt necessary when there is set screws? The frame? Yes, unfortunately the old...

    How Do I Grease These?

    Put these pieces in the ultrasonic cleaner and was able to get an item number off the side of one. Google search and 4 new bearings on the way.

    Clutch Positioning

    Predator 212 6.5 hp Centrifugal Clutch lining the clutch sprocket up with the axle sprocket causes the clutch to slightly hang off the drive shaft. Is this acceptable if I put a spacer between the clutch and the shaft shoulder in addition to the washer on the end? pictures for better...

    Predator 212 Speed Reduction

    Thanks much. What is this screw commonly called so I can look up visual aid and ensure I don’t start turning the wrong one? Lol

    Predator 212 Speed Reduction

    This post is probably the opposite of what most people desire of their engines. I am restoring a childhood go-kart for my own kids and would prefer it not to hit the top speeds the 6.5 hp predator is able to produce (from video review). I am looking for ways to safely handicap the engine to...

    Streaker S-465 Restoration (need help)

    Engine came. Painted the chair. Detailed the cushion. Got the throttle linked up with an extra spring to ensure throttle closes. Chair rails are back on. Just waiting on clutch now.

    How Do I Grease These?

    This is the love rear axle. Am I correct in my understanding that the arrows are pointing to the bearings the axle spins on? to replace these i would take off the sprocket, wheel hubs, slide axle out, pop out and pop new ones in? if you cannot find labels where would you measure to figure out...

    How Do I Grease These?

    I have a feeling the front ones (first picture) have gone bad. One had the grease pouring out as though a seal had burst. Need to figure out where to get them. I didn’t see any markings on this one to identify them.

    How Do I Grease These?

    Are these bearings that have to be fully replaced? And if so where do you find them? Or is there a way to open them up and pack them with grease? The second picture is actually a live axle. I suppose the bearings are more inward.

    Had a sanding session tonight. Freed up the kill switch wire and took off the seat rails for a strip, soak and scrub. Manage to at least smooth out almost every rust patch. one more sanding sessions, a dawn soap bath to strip any oils and the primer and paint go on. Sandblasted and primed...

    Streaker S-465 Restoration (need help)

    Ordered the predator horizontal 6.5 engine. Should be here within the week. I'm not sure what clutch I need for it that will fit my current chain. I measured the sprocket tops/tines/points and they are roughly a 1/2 inch apart or arguably 9/16 depending on exact measuring point. If anyone has...

    Streaker S-465 Restoration (need help)

    This is a go kart my grandparents got me when I was a kid. I fondly remember cruising around the neighborhood with friends and whatnot. I can't remember what went wrong but she got put in a shed and here she is 20-25 years later back in my possession. Now I am trying to get it safely operational...
