one kart I have been looking at has a loose left front spindle. It an older, non adjustible front end.

Quetions: do the spindles ride in bushings?
Brass?

can the be replaced easily?

readily available?

different sizes or did they tend to be stock sizes used amonf diffeen karts?

Thanks. cb

The older karts in the 70'& 80's had bushings not bearings and yes they did wear out, but they were a dime a dozen. All the Emmicks I ran had bushings.You may be looking at a vintage kart , what year and make is it

It is aTrick Kart, side winder, NO caster/camber adjustments, can't tell year yet.

Any stampings on it to tell.

BTW: old Margays had a 2 or 5 stamped on the front where the steering shft ends near the front axel: 2 equals a 12 degree (asphalt) or 5 15 degree which was supposed to be a dirt chassis: more bite.
