New to karting and have lots of questions. Lets start by keeping things on the kart and off the track. Can you tell me what the torque should be on the various hardware on the kart. In particular:
Disc brake nut/bolts
Wheel hub bolts (nuts that hold rear wheels)
Everything connected to the Axle
Any other important nut that should have a specific torque value.
Torque values for various bolt sizes are based on diameter and grade. Find your local source for bolts, not the local hardware store, but a machine shop supply house, and ask them if they have achart that gives these values. Most manufacturers do, and they're free.
Failing that, get the latest edition of Machinery's Handbook,(Not Cheap), in there you'll find the information you're looking for.
