"Just wanted to let you know I got the starter in plenty of time for
Christmas and the boys were so happy Christmas Day. They
installed it yesterday and all is fine. I will be sure to use
your site again for any go-kart needs and definitely recommend you to
anyone else. Thanks again, and have a Happy New Year!!"

The market is being flooded with
counterfeit Chinese parts.
Chinese copies of authentic parts
(including Comet, as well as Chinese-built karts, such as Hammerhead
and American Sportworks / American Landmaster) are being sold as the
original part number, but they are NOT the original part. They
are typically of inferior quality.
We sell very few after-market parts, and
we clearly identify them as such in our online store. Most are
made in the U. S.
We DO NOT sell

How do I identify the
torque converter belt I need? If you have the
old belt, you can generally find the number on it. If
you do not have the old belt, get as much information as you
can -- kart manufacturer, kart model, brand of torque
converter, engine horsepower -- and send us that to us in an
e-mail. NOTE: Comet belts are identified by
six numbers, followed by an "A" or a "C." There is no
difference in the "A" and "C" belts.
How do I identify
Standard centrifugal clutches are
identified by the crankshaft size (5/8", 3/4", or 1") and by
the distance between the teeth (pitch) on the sprocket (3/8"
or 1/2"). #35 clutches are 3/8" pitch, #41 are 1/2"
There are several specialty clutches. The
greaseable clutch was used on Brister's Design & Mfg.
karts (Mean Machine and The Go-Kart Factory) and later model
Brister's Thunder Karts, Murray, and Yellow Jacket** karts.
This clutch is identified by a
grease fitting on the end of the crankshaft.
You must use the special "GF" clutch for the grease mechanism
Belt clutches are used by Carter (do not confuse with a
torque converter, below).
How do I identify torque
Torque converters are actually comprised of
different parts, including the DRIVER UNIT, DRIVEN UNIT,
JACKSHAFT, and BELT. There are many different types of
torque converters, and many different belts, so you will need
to be very specific when ordering torque converter parts.
We are a distributor for Comet torque converters, and carry
the replacement parts for Max Torque, as well.
