Recently bought a manco rattler lxt single seater. Has a predator 212 non hemi with a header, genuine mikuni vm222 with intake and air filter, and governor removed. Kart has 22×11×10 tires on it. Having issues with torque converter. It's a 30 series. Believe that the tc is bad. When I got the kart the guy I bought it from said it was eating belts. I noticed the pulleys weren't aligned. So I shimed the driver pulley to line it up with the driven. One aligned i Installed a new belt. I measured pulley and distance previously before ordering new belts. Belt should be correct size. 203589A. After installing new belt i Started it up. The kart tried to take off at idle. Lowered idle. But Shortly after tc started smoking and chewed up the belt. Thinking the clutch is bad. Looking to get a new torque converter. Any and all suggestions and recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Also plan to upgrade to stage 2 very soon. Another thing is the kart will be carrying loads of 250lbs or so plus kart itself. from what I have read and heard I am getting mixed reviews on what I can and can't put on the predator 212 for a tc. Some say I can only use a 20 or 30 series. Others claim the 44 series will fit and work. As it has a 3/4 shaft. Willing to spend the money for the right set up that will work for this application. Again thank you in advance for any help and suggestions.
