    Clark, Very well said, and than you all for your valuable info

    I totally agree, and yes from now on Amsoil is what I will continue to run, and yes you’re right I would only be saving a couple of bucks, and compared to some other expenses is not bad at all, besides I’m already saving a lot on tires.

    Thank you guys.

    I highly doubt it, with the classes as big as they are, and people happy with that formula, I think it’s all rumors.

    People been talking about low supply for almost a decade now, they were doing the same thing back whey the 99 engine was ran, and no changes.

    Car. Where did you hear this at? Unless there is a headline news or announcement about it from Tom or a supplier I would have a hard time believing it. This formula is still very strong and still growing fast.

    Yeah, you can’t remove the cylinder or the piston out of it, you can only remove the head, and that won’t get you anywhere.

    Maybe Marty doesn’t know that this engine is a spec/sealed motor and you cannot open it.

    I was gonna suggest to loosen all the bolts on the side cover and crack it open so that William could clean up and squeeze some ultra grey sealant in there and then re tighten it, but you can’t even twist those bolts at all due to the cable on the engine spec seals.

     

    Best thing to do is cut the factory seals off, refreshen the engine, re seal it and use it as a back up or practice motor. Then buy a new one, that way you won’t have any problems for at least 3 years, you may get 5 years if you take real good care of it.

    I have a brand new package available, or just the motor long block by itself, if you’re interested William.

    You’re right, it will be hard for us to give you any advise with out any pictures

    Is this an ad from Craigslist by any chance?

    If so, you can just copy and paste the ad for us to look at it.

    Welcome to the sport.

    Awesome!

    Thank you.

    Builders sometimes can get very emotional, and they get their feelings hurt when you ask questions Lol, they thing you may be questioning their ability to thing or how they perform.

    Hitting the rev limiter at the end of the straight away is ok, but it is a lot better if you hit it a lot sooner, like at the start/finish line or a little bit passed that. And that will help you get off the corners faster, till you get smoother and faster.

    Now keep in mind the fast guys may run a much taller gear, but they are very good drivers, smooth and do not make too many mistakes, plus their chassis is most likely very well tuned, so yeah that sprocket will work for them very well, but not for a newbie.

    Are you gonna race this Sunday at Button Willow? This would be a good practice race, besides we’re racing in Bakersfield Saturday night, and head over to Button Willow in the morning if you wanna join us?

    From now on. Forget what your builder said. He’s not the one driving the kart

    You’ll get good info here, and with the guys at the track.

    Find out what the fast guys are running, take a good look at them and see how fat and short, or tall they are. You can learn a lot from the guys that are kicking your butt.

    You still haven’t answer my previous questions I asked, about how heavy or tall you are, year and model kart, etc. This is really important if you want your questions answered, I really meant it.

    And it will make it a lot easier to stay on one topic, just ad a new question, that way you’re not all over the place. Glad to help.

    William

    We’re racing this Saturday night in Bakersfield, there is self contained/dry camping available, and the owner will give a discount to the out of town guys.

    We’re planning to race here Saturday night, then me and a group of guys go Sunday morning and race at Button Willow with the Fresno guys that you raced with last.

    Do you wanna go? You know you want more seat time. Lol.

    Yeah, It is very hard to pass, there is something about that track though

    I have a love/hate relationship with it Lol.

    But it can totally make a good driver out of you for sure.

    Kevin Harvick used to race there as a young boy.

    Eric Would you take $200 cash for it?  ( old style manual stand )

    I can pick it up Saturday at CalSpeed if you’re there for the PKC Skusa race.

    How tall and heavy are you? What is the measurement from axle to back of seat lip? How high is the seat from the bottom frame rails? How many spacer do you have on the front spindles? What air pressures are you running and How old are the tires? What year make and model is your kart?

    I’m not joking, please answer all these questions and we’ll take it from there buddy.

    Yeah, looks like you’re gonna have to clean real good underneath, grind it down so that the sealant or JB weld you use will stick to it.

    Good luck.

    Ok

    One more thing, this is gonna sound stupid, but the only stupid question is the one that doesn’t get asked right?

    How tight are both yellow oil filler caps? If not tight enough it will seep oil down the seam and gasket area.

    How much oil did you put in the engine, when you filled up?

    #82182

    FREDDY SANDOVAL
    Participant

    Wow, then you most likely have a bad gasket, or a bad crank seal

    Those engines are very consistent, but stuff happens.

    At this point I would contact the dealer you bought it from, and see if they can issue some kind of a defect warranty, since you can’t open the cases.

    Good luck to ya’

    I don’t think it’s the side cover gasket, it could be chain lube running down the cover, or oil spillage from when you did your last oil change, it gets trapped between the engine mount and the side cover.

    I could be wrong, but clean it up really good with brake cleaner and dry it out. Then you can re check again. Or post some pictures.

    I’m glad you had fun! Addicting isn’t it? Most people in the karting community are very nice.

    You wanna do it again? Come race with us at a small club here in Bakersfield Ca. It is a smaller group, but there is something special about that track with elevation. We have a group of friends that wanna race there, and we also travel all the way down to CalSpeed with the Tri-C guys ( very good people there also) Here’s a video of that track, and yes, they race at night time. Anyway we’re racing Jun 10th Saturday night in case you’re interested, and you can run the same set of tires you raced with this weekend, just flip them.

    Ok, guys. 1 chassis sale pending, still have 2nd kart available, currently at Fresno event right now.

    Yes, Bryan we will be there, and yes they are brand new, not a single drop of fuel or oil has been added to the tank or the motor.

    We had just put them together a couple of weeks ago, so everything is brand new and fresh out of the box.

    We will be across the podium. Thanks.

    Dude!

    Just put a piece of fuel line, stick it far enough inside that molded hose and install the other end inside your catch can, done deal, it won’t fall off, been running mine for this whole season with no issues at all.

    Please make sure your catch can has one or 2 bog holes for breathing, otherwise it will drive you crazy running like crap.

    Good luck with your race.

    I have a complete MRC with mounts and brackets

    Looks like this one, but older.

    For Ohio should be fine, but for hot California desert is a bit hotter than what we like to run.
