The engine's in (for the second time). Installed it the first time only to find out that the drive shaft yoke wouldn't go into the bushing. Pulled it out and replaced the tailshaft bushing and seal and put it back in again. Now the driveshaft fits fine.



We've still got a bunch of little things to finish up, like plug wire seperators and radiator hoses, but we're shooting for a first start sometime on Labor day weekend.





The uncoated "J" pipes are only temporary. We've got another set that are going to Jet Hot for Ceramic Coating.

Thanks to everyone who's helped us get this far.

We got the overflow/fan shroud combination from Chris Richards (Mass-Flo EFI) when we bought the kit from him last October. It's something he had made up when he was building kits. It came with 2 10" Spal fans and is made to attach directly to a stock radiator.

Jeff,

If the first start goes well I'll be trailering the go kart to a car show that my company is having on September 12th. We're located in an area with several industrial buildings whose parking lots are loosely linked together so there's plenty of area to drive it around.
