    My lad is dating a girl from Sapin and her family were out here.  So they borrowed the truckster and went down to Second Valley, McLaren Vale for a couple of days.  Apparently, it never missed a beat, and even Clara’s Dad thought it was pretty old school cool :)

    Finally got around to rebuilding the carby on the weekend,. Its was basically full of 30 years of crud.   Next, I want to work through a replace all the various vacuum lines as they are pretty sad and sorry.

    Id be replacing the vaccume hoses with high temp silicon ones  while you are at it.

     

    How did you find rebuilding it? Have you had it running since?

    Yep rebuild went well, runs great now, I guess once I take it on a longer drive will see if the fuel economy is better.  Sort of wanted to keep the look of all the lines factory, so sticking with a similar type.

    Just driving it around a little.  But my lad hurt his ribs so he hasn’t raced karts for a while, but we are heading out this Saturday so should be out for a run :)
