Alright, I have a list of things to hopefully accomplish tomorrow.

-Motor disassembly
-Porting/Polishing
-Taking a dremel to the port on the carb to smooth it out a bit
-Reassemble the transaxle
-Cleaning up the welds on my pushbar
-Making stands so I can sandblast in the snow

Well, didn't get as much done as I planned to but still got enough. Also found some sawhorses so I no longer have to make stands for the parts.

Disassembled the motor.



It gets its own shelf.



Got the transaxle back together.



The leaning tower of tires increases in size.

Yup, that's the brake. Quite popular on go karts and works quite well.

They don't want competition in the gasket business... if they find you giving away or selling those extra gaskets, they're gonna send a goon out to break your legs.
