Hey guys This is my latest project. it started with a four speed transaxle and a spare front end I learned to weld this week so I built the frame from scratch(it's not done yet). It looks crooked cuz the transmission is off center but the main rails are straight. I am making this sort of a go cart so it will have higher gearing and I wanted to help prevent rolling so I flipped the front axle to lower it and I'm putting a couple old seat springs in to prevent the weight of the engine from twisting the front end over in the corners. If anyone has information on how to lock these older axles please send it to me. THANKS GUYS more coming soon!

Looks like a cool project! There's several different methods to lock your diff, there's a thread outlining them all but I can't find it atm, I'll look again later unless someone else beats me to it!

That's going to be wild! How long until you think you'll be able to take it for a test run?

If you want to correct your camber I have an idea unless you already have a plan?

Looks good! Nice choice of motor.

Got to think it might be worth making some C spindles because in its current configuration I’d be leery of that weight on the cotter pin. Could also dial your camber in that way too.
