We made some more progress over the weekend. The motor mounts and jack shaft mounts are in. I need to cut the jack shaft to length but that can wait. I also wirebrushed the inside of the tub and we cleared it so that it's clean to sit in.

Looking good! Did you let her try to spark an arc or two?

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

I keep trying to get her to but she's nervous about it. Hopefully at some point it will happen. She's to the point where she will help hold things in place for tacking which is a step forward from when we started. One step at a time!

Remember to say that when you are building projects for all your girls.



Go karts are just entry-level... I once knew a guy that was building a 57 T-Bird and a 57 Corvette for his kids. Of course he was richer than most of us.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

We finally put a bit more time into the cart and got the steering column sorted out. I forgot to take a pic with the steering shaft and wheel on but that will come soon. I have to do a bit or machining on it to get it finished up. I also realized I had to get a quick release for the steering wheel to make it reasonable to get in and out of the kart.

We got the steering column put together with all the flanges, bearings, etc. It came out pretty well I think. We ended up putting a quick release on for the wheel so that it's easier to get in and out of the cart. The little rack and pinion seems to be about take 360 degrees stop to stop so it should be pretty nice steering. Hopefully it isn't quite a twitchy as a lot of carts.
