Intro: AWESOME WOODEN GO KART MADE FROM SCRAPS ON a BUDGET! (part 1)
THIS IS THE FIRST PART OF MY FIRST INSTRUCTIBLE, AND I HAVE CHANGED A FEW THINGS ON MY GO KART, I ADDED PADDING TO THE SEAT, GOT DIFFERENT AXLE BOLTS FOR THE WHEELS, PAINTED THE STEERING WHEEL POLE BLACK, AND ADDED AN ELECTRIC HORN WITH A SWITCH THAT RUNS OFF OF AN 18 VOLT BATTERY.
JUST BE CREATIVE WHEN YOU BUILD IT!
Step 1: Pictures
here are the pictures of everything for part 1.
3 steering box
4 same as 3
5 steering system
9 axle mounts (chunks of 4x4 cut to length)
12 spacers to mount the L brackets.
13,14 hand brake(this is temporary)
15 engine mounting plate (just a board that i screwed down)
16 steering connector
17 parts and tools nuts bolts
18 this is the bit i used to drill the hole for the steering wheel and pole(you can convert the whole steering to 3 wheel if you take it all off and use the handlebars of of a minibike through the tip of the 4x4 i used for mounting.)
19 front tire specs
20 hammer harbor freight
22,23 the engine i'm going to use.(harbor frieght 6.5 hp preadator engine.)
24-5-6 all wheels and mounting bolts, the bolt goes through the l bracket you see in pic numbers 10,11
27 steering pole
30 rear wheel, you have to punch out the bearings for the axle.
Step 2: The Build
first you have to build the frame, it simply consists of 2 x 4's and a bit of wood planking for mounting the engine. also you will need some 4 x 4's to mount the axles and steering system.
Step 3: Asemble
A FEW NOTES,
FOLLOW THE PICTURES
IN THE STEERING, MAKE SURE YOU PUT WASHERS BETWEEN ALL SURFACES.
USE GOOD 3 INCH LONG SCREWS FOR ALL THE FRAMING
USE YOUR CREATIVITY AND KNOCK IT OUT!
YOU WILL NEED BEARINGS FOR THE AXLE, AND A SOLID AXLE.
