Thanks for the concern/advice Dave.

Here’s an update on the troubleshooting progress:

  1. Replaced the head gasket which fixed my temperature problem and my bubbling radiator fluid problem.
  2. The kart is still running rich which was slightly improved via an adjustment to the air screw (had to go 3 turns out which is another indication it’s running rich and the jetting is off)
  3. After running the kart for 5 or 6 laps up and down the street it dies.

I’m going to pull the carb apart to adjust the needle clip up one notch and see what jets are being used.
