I am trying to restore a few engines and karts from 90s and early 2000s.
Rotax DSC Formula A
Parilla Leopard TAG
Top Kart (small tubing)
Top Kart (larger tubing)
I raced for several years but never got to fully learn how to work on the engines and carburetors. My engine builder passed away and I want to honor him by restoring these karts (maybe even race in a vintage class if they do it here in Phoenix)
I’m a noob in terms of working on the engines so thank you in advance for your patience and help!
I have a long crank (for a wet clutch previously). I run direct drive so I think they put some spacer on the shaft. I have a gear puller but it isn’t long enough to reach the gear. Any suggestions on how to remove it?
I already removed the starter nut but can’t remove the spacer or the gear.
27mm dia.x11/4 mm pitch . Right hand thread. That Motoplat ignition was standard on all? European 100cc engines for maybe 15 years until the demise of Motoplat early 90s. “Puller for 100 cc Motoplat” can be bought from www.tal-ko.com or www.kartstore.co.uk in UK and elsewhere.
I had a stubborn clutch shoe on my old Leopard and ended up having to use a torch and shock the crank with a hammer to pop it loose. It was not keyed, but held in place with threadlocker compound on the taper. I think it roasted my bearing seals, because they disintegrated two drives later. If you go that route, make sure you replace the seals.
