Old Mossy Horns
The ls is a no fit situation. Cut frame for exhaust. Raise motor and cut crossmember to install power steering joint and leave drivers side of engine raised. No room for radiator. Ac compressor fits but no rotation on tensioner bracket because of frame and crossmember. Have to choose on remaining space whether to have ac components or Install ecu and pressure vessel. That's the short list. The shop did NOT plan this out when they convinced us an ls was the way to go. Nor did they think through all the existing cuts, chops , welds they made to get the ls shoved in. My job now is to unf__k this ls powered gokart.Very nice progress, keep it up. Id reconsider using to ls as its the most popular swap in the world and a ton of info on it.
Sharps40. THANK YOU for this thread. Awesome work you are doing.
Answer if you want, What do you estimate your total investment is? I know you can not figure your labor and the screw job you got when the shop changed owners, but just wondering, ballpark?
Thanks again as the is fantastic!
Yep, there is at least a couple of ways to accomplish the goal, but a knockout is a very valid course to take to leave a smoothe cut.I don't know if you have an electricians knockout set. You can cut a larger hole with them with an existing hole already there also. Perfect round and no buggering. The good thing about them is they require no power tools.
