Certainly, if one or two events could be scheduled "on the way" to Tieton (from the eastern time zone), that would make the whole trip much more appealing.

As it is, I am planning to make the trip next year, I hope. It will have to be combined with a pre-booked sightseeing and camping tour for the whole family. It's a long way to go for just 2 days of CKing, good as that is.

I just hope they keep holding Tieton for 5 more years!

In reply to # 38123 by Denny Graham Ah ha!!!! Must have been a steering day for everybody. I just 'skated' in from the barn
and am ready for my nightly beer.
Got the Ross gear all re-assembled, installed, got the upper mast jacket support welded
in and the tie rod made up....that do feel good the first time you roll it across the shop
steering it from the cockpit.
Master cylinder tomorrow.

Denny,

Can you explain your steering shaft? It is not the usual 5/8" solid steel shaft that most people use.

Thanks,
Vince.

That's the plan for us this year - make a vacation out of it We're stopping in Wisconsin to visit family, then on to Tieton, sight seeing along the way. Afterwards, we'll stop in Las Vegas to see my parents. We'll probably stop in Dallas and New Orleans on the way home. We're hoping to do it in three weeks.

It would be great if something was arranged in Minnesota, North Dakota or Montana about a week before Tieton. Then afterwards something in the southern states, like an Arizona meet with Dennis Thomas or the Vintage Kart Co. guys. Then Texas after that, possibly Georgia, Pennsylvania/New York and then home!

What do you suppose the chances are of getting that figured out?

Brian, my wife and I have passports, but my grand daughter doesn't. Does an 11 year old need one?
What do you mean, how are we travelling?

I've been posting way to much about my steering fiasco lately Vince, i think the guys
are probably sick of hearing about it. But....not to be to boring....one more time. It's
a modified Ross S10 series steering gear that was used by several of the major
manufacturers of the early garden tractors. I wanted the look of the original car
so that meant a steering gear that made use of a drag link.
This was a pain in the ars and eat up way to much time, but I've got it working
like I'd planned. Now.....I'll have to wait till I get it out in the pasture to see if it
will perform like expected.
Next one will definitely have rack & pinion and floor mounted pedals.

Brian, we're staying in hotels. We got rid of our camping equipment years ago, and I'm too old to sleep on the ground anyway.
Give me a nice comfy bed, tv, and a hot shower, with free breakfast. That's how we travel these days.

Well lots of prospective new members, lots of people looking but....not
much goin' on lately. Must be the weather. So I though I'd bore those
of you that aren't hibernating with a few more monotonous details.
Now there is nothing earth shaking going on round here either, but...I am
getting some of those little tasks taken care of.
So, when you go against convention, dang near everything that goes
on the machine has to be custom made to fit. The up side to building
a kart to the basic Stevens formula is......the simplicity of it or as is so
often referenced, sticking to the KISS principle. ..
That lack of convention holds true of even what is normally obtained
at the local hardware store.
I chose to try over head swing pedals on the Riley, and after they were made
and in place, I needed a clevis to connect up the link to the master cylinder.
None to be found that were small enough and light enough for the purpose.
So........(lots of so'ing goin' on today) so, I made a couple clevis's to fit my
application and of course they took up the whole afternoon yesterday and
I was out at sun at the lathe.
Sure....I could have whittled these out with a hack saw and bastard file and
clamped them up in the bench vice to drill and tap them, but because of my
machinist background, I had to do all the shaping in the mill and the lathe.
Which entailed making a couple of special setups.
A couple of pix of the.

They are beautiful Denny!
And once again your CycleKart gave you an opportunity for you to use some of the great
equipment you have, and keep you mind and hands busy!
We see the same thing with Chuck's build......his access to the latest machining equipment
and technology, has allowed him to keep busy all winter producing amazing little pieces
that satisfy his need to be creative.
All part of the FUN!
For me last night, while in "Dream Land", my mind was working on the Aluminium body
for my Ice Racer.
I hope to have the Chassis finished today!

PS
And Yes, lots joining, and lots reading..........but only a couple of us posting these days!
Time to get back to work!

Great work Denny, better than the bent steel ones you can buy. I'm not far off starting my build, so I'll be posting then. No point yet, clearing out one shed, and filling another isn't exactly riveting, so I'm keeping quiet until I've got the workspace insulated and lined.
