 GO CART PARTS LIST

2*Motorized reel type lawn mower. These were used before the rotary mower was invented. Anyone remember them?
3*1934 Plymouth
4*bicycle
5*mine bolts -
6* steel pipe
7*Jack shaft -
8* twin size bed?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(Keep in mind this was 50 years or so ago that my cousin his dad and I built this go cart.)

1*washing machine - automatic?
We used two of the gears that made the agitator go back and forth. This was used to construct the steering mechanics. Un like most automative steering that was made up of a steering gear box tie rods and other linkage we were basically able to use one set up which did the job of a steering gear box and the linkage all in one arrangement. We didn't need tie rods and all that linkage as all that was required was a short connector to each front wheel.
We also used one of the pulleys that rotated the washer drum on one end of the speed reduction jack shaft.

2*lawn mower
Motorized reel mower. These were used before the rotary mower was invented. Anyone remember them?
We used the engine for our power plant.

3*1934 Plymouth
all we used was the steering wheel.

4*bicycle -
All we used was the small rear wheel sprocket to put on the other end of the speed reduction jack shaft. we welded the larger pedal crank sprocket to the inside of the left rear wheel. and used a section of the bicycle chain to connect the two sprockets

5*mine bolts -
The kind they use to support coal mine ceilings to help prevent cave in ins.
We lived about a block from the factory that was one of if not the largest supplier of these bolts to the mining industry. They would buy square stock and turn it down to make the bolts.
We bought 2 pieces of 1" in stock from them and my uncle who was a machinist turned them down on the ends to make the axles.

6*pipe
Probably 3/4" STEEL.
We used pipe for several things. One thing we used it for was the combination motor mount clutch.

7*Jack shaft
Actually the type used to increase or decrease speed depending on which one is your goal.
You might say this became our one speed no reverse transmission.

8*and a twin size bed?
Frame we used it for the chassis, under carriage or what ever you want to call it.
=====
About the only thing we had to buy that wasn't some part off of some old junked thing was the 4 new store bought wheels.

Guess we didn't have any kind of old junk around that had any wheels on it.


Needless to say my cousin & I were the envy of all the other kids in the neighborhood.
50 years ago they all wanted us to take them for a ride on what just might have been the first go cart ever or at least the most unique one ever built.

I wish I would have kept it.
Today it would have been a unique one of a kind keepsake and a really great conversion piece.

The only keep sake I have from it is the last motor that was on it. This motor is way older than I am. Dad used it to saw fire wood for the old coal stove back in the early 1940s.
