I worked on the Go Kart I’m getting ready for my children. I have it all ready to mount the engine. I ended up having to cut off the old mounting plate. I bought one 1 in square tube by 36 in Long and cut it down to length. Now I have to weld it in place. Then weld on the mounting plate.

The mounting plate is going to sit a little further back and you may notice that I can’t get the chain lined up with the sprocket and its current position. I’m going to have to end up ordering a little bit longer of a jack shaft and mounting the 35 sprocket where the nut is now. I’ll replace the 35 sprocket with a 40 sprocket near the engine. This will allow me to maintain spacing while also getting the chain where it needs to be. Let’s hope it all goes well. I’ve never welded before.
