    The early days of DIY go karts.

    In the early to mid 1950's my big brother (Mike) and several of his friends all built their own go karts. (but no one had ever heard of the term 'go kart' back then, they called them Micro Midgets) My brother built his first go kart in 1952, it was just made from wood. He took the...

    Yet another new type of clone engine

    I just ran across this Durostar engine for the first time this morning in a thread here. That pull start cover sure seems to be a totally unique design and not just yet another direct GX-honda rip off. I still need to do more research to try and figure out who manufactures these engines, but...

    Want advice about repairing damaged GX390 PTO

    I just picked this GX390 up yesterday. It was on an air compressor that'd seized up. I found a federal EPA sticker with 2002 dates and this thing runs perfect, doesnt smoke at all, had a very clean air filter plus the oil looked like new. (I got a feeling it hasn't had many hours of use) The...

    DIY gearing calculator question:

    Is this gearing calculator only accurate when using #35 chain/sprockets? It sure seems like the pitch diference between say a #219, #35, #40/41 or a #520 type setup would require the calculator to be calibrated differently for each.
