  The shortest distance between two points...
Posted by: Kurt Bogerman - 04-04-2020, 07:42 PM - Forum: General - Replies (10)

Good evening, all.  I hope you are well. (These days, especially, it's more than just a polite remark!)


I recently acquired a MC10 "clone" engine that has not been run before in it's current configuration.  For various reasons, I've opted to disassemble it and make a couple changes before firing it up.  One thing I noticed is that the bore of the connecting rod's big end is not centered.  It is noticeably biased to one side.  I thought it might be interesting to hear some opinions about whether or not this is "within the manufacturer's specifications", or if it is a "defect", and if it has any detrimental or supplemental characteristics.  Maybe it's just an aesthetic issue, and I'm reading too much into it.  For what it's worth, my thought was to install it so the thicker side bears down against the crank through the power stroke.  Also, I'm not sure if this will have any geometric effects in the same vein as an offset wrist pin.  Any thoughts?

Here's some pictures:

  Dual engine kart ID
Posted by: Terry Bentley - 03-25-2020, 06:05 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

This is an earlier dead axle dual chassis. It is mostly original. The sissy bars of seat have been cut and moved up. Steering wheel has also been changed. Maybe someone has an idea of manufacturer. I havent found anything close so far. A lot of things look similar to other makes but nothing conclusive.

Steering shaft is 3/4" tubing. Rear axle stubs are removable. They are 3/4" with Timken rollers stepped down to 5/8" extra fine threads. Front axle bracing has been added. From the construction appears to be 1959-60.
