    I was kicked out of an amusement park when I was a kid for reaching back and pulling the actual throttle. They didn't like it at all.

    Petrol, aluminium, sound it as your primary school teacher would say it's not aloominum. Across the pond is where your spoken language comes from, you just haven't got it right yet.

    In Austria we suddenly got street-legal carts (classified as motorcycles) a few years ago. I did know that but still had the laugh of my life when I saw a whole gang of people in Mario Kart costumes riding them in the middle of Vienna :-D

    Well done! With all of the run hours, and especially idle/low load, I wonder if it needs a valve adjustment. Could you check this in your next video?

    When I was a kid, a new neighbor moved in, who owned a trucking company and did most of his own repairs. He also did work for his father's contracting company, which ran with vintage Mack dump trucks and stuff. I used to hang out with him all the time over the summer, learned how to drive all sorts of construction machines, and a lot about big rig diesel engines. At one point, we started building a sort of go-kart, this one was going to be more like a WWII Jeep and not a high speed sort of thing. We had an ancient Kohler industrial motor off an old piece of equipment we got running, the frame was mostly wood, reinforced with some metal fence posts. The front end - almost the same as this kart. We used the steering shaft out of a Freightliner cabover, with one side of each of the universals welded. Wheels and tires were contractor wheelbarrow wheels, although I think we changed to some off an old portable cement mixer - same one we got the motor off of. Taking that apart, we set fire to the weeds it was buried in - it was so rusty, just using penetrating oil didn't work to loosen the bolts, so he hauled out the cutting torch to burn them off. Of course the penetrating oil burns nicely, and it was sprayed on liberally, and dripping everywhere... .We only got it to the point of having the basic body in place, and a steering system, I forget how exactly we built that, but no steering wheel yet. By that time, I would no longer fit in it, and I was old enough to be more helpful for actual work around the place, so it got set aside. I think later on he finished it for his nephew.

    11:35 Why just "adjust" the throttle-limiter bolt??? Why not just TAKE IT OFF COMPLETELY so that you can "open her up all the way"??? :P :D

    I really enjoyed this video, I wish i had one of those table for my disability scooter, Please what are they called ? i like the idea of being able to drive my buggy onto it or roll it on to it and work on it at table height. To do any work on it on the floor just kills me... Cheers regards Richard
