go kart

While making the rounds this morning I decided that since it hasn't moved in over a year... the go kart deserves another chance at life.  Getting tired of telling visitors that it doesn't run.  Disconnected the gas tank and drained the little bit of bad gas that was still inside. Ordered new tires and a master cylinder (the reservoir crumbled when I tried to remove the cap) and will have to pick up a new battery and some fuel lines (and brake fluid) next trip to Alpine.  I will have to get it fired up and on the road before I can find out what else needs fixin.  89,98,61,0,C,0

I'd would love to own a highway legal buggy someday. I can't stand these new mini-cars like the Mini and the Fiat 500. They're cramped and uncomfortable and hard to get in/out of. My daily driver is a 4cylinder, '83 Ford Mustang with a manual transmission. Ancient technology right? It gets 26-28 mpg on the highway. I had to rent a brand new Fiat 500 while I was awaiting parts for the 'stang and it barely got 32mpg and had an awful ride. 30 years of technological progress for just 4mpg and less comfort? My ex girlfriend's Escort got better gas mileage and was way more comfortable.

While you are ordering you might as well go ahead and get a carburetor rebuild kit. Probability of needing one with stale gas sitting in it for so long is about 98%

Good luck on fixing that go kart. Yes, it definitely needs another chance at life. Maybe you can still make it work. I'm pretty sure you can make that work again and since you got some of the parts already, you are on your way. Good luck!
