The steering hub that came with the kart when I bought it (20mm) seems fairly loose on the steering shaft and regularly requires retightening. Can anyone confirm that the steering hub should be a 19mm not a 20mm? If so, any recommendations on where, other than ordering from Anderson, I can find a 19mm hub with clutch lever? I’ve found 20mm hubs with clutch levers, but not 19mm.
I also need a driver’s bubble bracket that is more bracket than welding wire.
Mark, a measuring device is your friend…… Last Anderson steering shaft I looked at was 3/4″, about 1 mm smaller than 20 mm. If you have a clutch on the steering hub, Anderson used to bush the 20 mm hub and bore it to 3/4″. I have a fixture to doing mine in the lathe.
You know Mark I think Chris is right. I remember last time I had mine off it had a thin shim between it and the hub. I just thought the prior owner had made something to adapt a different hub on. Maybe it was OEM Anderson afterall.
You are a legend! :) What do you want for it kind Sir? (PM me)
I would love to be able to accommodate your condition of racing at Buttonwillow, but am heading to Japan on Tuesday for a week. However, I will be able to put it to good use and attempt to dazzle you with my driving skills (or lack there of) at Sonoma. Would that work? :)
No deal Mark!! Screw work and flying to Japan! Racing is way more important!!!
Mark I am so glad you have sorted your motor out and coming to Button!! No chance of lapping you now, all you Honda guys are flying!!
Just kidding on the bubble bracket Mark – let me see what I paid for it and I will let you know.
Larry you better get your finger out and get that motor back on the kart! No wait a minute, what am I thinking! You will have to ask Mark M to come over and help you find your spanners as you don’t know the difference between metric, american and good old whitworth!! Ha ha :)
No package in the mail so I can’t put my motor together and back in yet! As for which spanner to use, well that’s easy, the one that fits Wanker! Ok, Wanker might be a little harsh let’s go with lima bean :O
