My teenage son and I picked up a go kart from a local seller, I dont have much back ground on who makes the cart and am struggling with the breaks. I see that when I depress the break the pads touch the rotor, but they provide zero stopping power.
I have tried to pump bleed the breaks - three pumps, hold, release the screws on the calipers to let air out with limited success. I got a reverse bleeding kit, but the plastic tube is too large and that turned out not to work.
I’ve looked into getting a bleeding screw but cant figure out what size it would be. The other thought I had is to get shims to see if that works.
Does anyone have suggestions on what to do? Also - can anyone provide me the maker of the calipers so I can match the pads / shims.
Appreciate any help!
