Why do you need a universal in your steering shaft? Can you mount the rack so the shaft is a straight shot to it?

Hi Rick
Rack is already mounted and there is a slight change in angle.
I have finally solved the problem, by just ordering the joint I needed, rather than
messing with stuff from my collection. Enough time wasted on this already.
Part is awaiting pick up at my US address.
And Martin, that is where I started when I built the "Speed Devil" some 57 years ago!
Fastest downhill racer in the neighbourhood!smiling bouncing smiley
Hoping to keep the CK "Ice Racer" to a similar level of build so that it will be ready before the ice melts off
of Duck Lake or Swan Lake??????
My track record for getting things done on schedule really sucks!sad smiley
Brian
PS
I am finally back in the shop again today working on the Miller........until someone distracts me with Beer!smileys with beer

Beer distraction is on hold mr woods. Apart from the honey do list, changing both the engines in the 52 pickup and 46 sedan and looking for another house we’ve been car hunting (picking that up today) and we’re then heading up to Grand Prairie for a week on Wednesday afternoon to visit my son.
It’s playtime on the cyclekart on the first days AM back from that trip though, finally

Would love to drive it before the snow flies!eye rolling smiley

I did try to work on the tail section this weekend, and did get a couple of hours in before Farming set in again.
Both here and at he next door neighbours for grape harvest.
Rick' s progress on his 35 Miller has kept me inspired (and enviouseye rolling smiley) lately....but the new toy (1962 MGA )
has kept me a little busy this past 3 weeks since we got home.
Good Roads

We got home last night from our last Teardrop Gathering of the season down on Whidbey Island (LastGasp Gathering).
And to day I am expecting a visit from one of our B.C. Chapter members, who I am sure is planning on giving me a kick
in the ass on my CycleKart progress.
But, we are home for the winter now, and the farm chores are so close to being finished, that good thing may start happening.
I am looking forward to getting back at it once aagin.
This has been a build of "spirts" and "dry spells".eye rolling smiley
IT WILL GET DONE!

Next step for me is to revamp my engine cover design to one very similar to yours.
I have been wrestling with a vertical line I did not care for, but think the new design will solve that
problem by eliminating the line.
Miller tails were so beautiful, but hard to keep with rear mounted engine that needs constant access
and cooling.eye rolling smiley

Justin, while looking at Google maps this morning, something which I do often
to get a feel for what the area is like that members of a forum live in. And, I was
skimming just above the sand up the west coast along Rocky Point Beach and
noticed mile after mile of what looks like downed trees? Is that from logging
on the island?
Brian, reading your intentions toward getting back to the Miller this winter,
might just be the push I need to get me off my ars and back to the shop.
Sometimes I need some sort of motivation to get me started. I'm like an
old froze up motor, a little shove might break me loose and get me
spinning again.

So Brian, are you saying that I inspired you to change the tail section of your kart, or are you blaming me for causing you extra work? spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Hey Denny, its years worth of drift wood from all over the puget sound. The Island used to be old growth forest, but was logged in the 1940s I believe. Theres only one area thats still old growth, and thats deception pass state park.
