We Bought a $20 Go Kart from a Chicken Farm... Will it Run + Ride?
Rascal mini bike charity raffle link: www.gopowersports.com/cars-ca...

We bought this old Murray two seater kid's go kart a few months ago from a chicken farm for 20 dollars! Powered by a 5 horsepower Honda overhead cam engine, this go kart has been sitting for years. In today's episode, we free up the live axle and steering, and try to get the Honda engine running!

Thanks for Watching!

    Guys. Why don't you take the wet spots and fill it with sand. As it would always drain and be dry on top. Sand is porous and would let the water run off and not puddle up

    I got a go cart for a fifth of jack daniels put over 600 into now but worth it

  • SilverHoof01

    This video reminds me the time I slightly built one. I bought a home made go kart body from a class mate with no engine or seat for 100 when I was in high school. Had found a Honda 340 gx engine with no carburetor, but bought a cheap dirt bike carb from amazon and custom made a new aluminum cast intake manifold for the carb somehow similar to the one in the video. The engine had to get a governor delete and it even had electric start. The engine also made about 2 or 3 extra horsepower because the carb venturi was a bit bigger than the factory carburetor. Then instead of the centrifugal clutch I once had but burnt out, I put a torque converter on and it was the best experience.

    The air filter is probably getting wet going through the puddle. My Minibike does that when the air filter gets wet.

    That Honda always ran worse after you got it wet. Maybe you were sucking water through that mesh filter?

    Turn it into a 6x6 go cart with a 670cc engine

  • FireFoxOfficial

    For anyone who wants to buy a Honda GC160/GC190, I'm sorry to tell you but its not a very good go kart engine. It might be a honda but its just not a good go kart engine. The exhaust is on the wrong side, the shaft isn't the right size, and the throttle setup is odd. Overall I'd say a $99 harbor freight is a good way to go. But, if you really want a honda and you don't want to spend a lot, I'd say go with a GX120 if you have a go kart like in the video. Its not the fastest kart with a 120cc engine but the honda gx series is great unlike the gc series. (Advice from someone building a go kart)

    Murrays tend to break lol. I have a Murray Explorer. Frame has cracked on it so many times. Just sold the Honda GX270 off it, debating putting a 2 stroke snowmobile engine on it. After I fix the frame again of course.

  • watahyahknow

    again : since you rebuild a lot of carburators and old stuff you probably get a lot of use from a ultrasonic cleaner , doesnt need to be a big one www.harborfreight.com/25-liter-ultrasonic-cleaner-63256.html these things realy work and clean all the little channels in the carb

  • Guy Lishman

    I believe you need a return line for the fuel as it forces fuel threw the carb wich fills the bore up and causes to much pressure in the crank case so believe that the line off the breather needs a t so it can still breath but also runs the pump

    These videos are awesome! I just picked up a 1980's bird engineering yard kart with a flat head Briggs and Stratton for $50. Rebuilding an old kart is more enjoyable to me than buying a new one. If you're not having fun then it's not worth doing. Lol
