Welcome to the fun and best of luck with your build , where are you at in Mississippi ? We have a big Rat Rod show tomorrow with MINI BIKE RACING in Gulfport ! and another super event in Lucedale coming up in May !
Grenada/Carrollton/Greenwood area. Bit far north of Gulfport sadly. And seven day work weeks don't help matters for planning trips. Nice for the funds though.
Welcome to the forum. We look forward to your mini bike build. Please post pictures as you go!
Went and got the old torque converter from the barn. Dunno where the old base plate with jack shaft for it is, driven was originally held on with a welded over nut, whole kart was a basket case when I got it. I remember grinding off the nut when the jackshaft bearings went out. Been years ago. Thing is real dirty but I'll blast it clean with this soft media in the cabinet at work.20170423_004737.jpg
Got it blasted and reassembled. Got some small cracks Around the rivets on the driven that I may weld a bit. Think I'll pick up some flat black engine paint and bake it on.20170423_034355.jpg
