I was given a "Go-Kart" its an old Carter brothers dlx150 but the engine is not the same that came with this Kart. I am trying to ID it so i can look at getting some parts for it. the pictures attached are of the motor and the only ID marks on it. I am thinking its some sort of 200cc from the 1980's does anyone have a better Idea? I am really trying to get a rebuild kit for the carburetor. on the carburetor is  Keihin 63 AA YKT

Wow cool mod to a go kart.

It looks like an old Honda atc 200 engine. Maybe 82-85 on the year.

Thank you so much this helped out greatly! now if i can find the other stuff I need to finish it off. I miss the days where you could walk into a auto store or tractor store and say I need something like this. and they would go match it up to something that may work. Now every time I go into a store like this they say I need a specific make and model in order to help you. Sad Times!

I know the feeling. But keep in mind that the Honda dealers can help you out with old parts when in need but eBay has most of the stuff your looking for.  Also my response was just a guess.  I could be wrong but I bet I’m in the ball park. 

What’s on the list of things to do ?

carb is almost done. just realized that the idle jet is plugged. (dang that hole is to small to get anything through it.) The main problem I am having is coming up with a shifter for it. The people that had it before me rigged in a lever type shifter that connected to the engine with tie rod type ends. it worked as long as you are the only one in the Kart. as soon as you get 2 adults in it you can shift up in gear but not down. so i was trying to see if something like this https://www.jegs.com/i/B-M/130/80831/10002/-1spacer.png

but no one will go look in their inventory to see if they have something like it I could look at. Don't want to spend 70 bucks on a thing that wont work.

last thing is I am missing the gear between the starter and (insert or gear name inside the case here) the started is frozen want to get it out to repair or replace it but i cant get the dang thing out. it looks like you have to crack the case to pull it out. this is last because it has the good old trusty pull start lol. it does fire up on the first pull still if i can get this carb worked out.

Take a piece of a bicycle brake cable and separate the strands and use one of the strands. It works great.  Or go on amazon and they have a small kit that has all sorts of small cleaning tips for that work.  Just look up a carburetor cleaning tool.  

As far as the shifter goes I would have a welder make up some linkage and do some custom work.   BUT YOU HAVE TO DISCONNECT ALL ELECTRICAL ITEMS ON THE ENGINE BEFORE YOU WELD ON THE FRAME! you will do damage to the stator coil and rectifier.  

The starter will come out it’s going to take some finesse.   Look on YouTube and search starter removal on an atc 200 Honda and see what comes up.

Your welcome. That part your pointing to is your cam chain tensioner. If it’s in the way of the statue then you  can remove it and put it back. However.... once it’s out do not rotate the engine because that tensioner keeps pressure (tension) on your timing chain.  Rotating the engine while the tensioner is out can allow the chain to jump and throw the timing off. So pull the tensioner out do what you have to do and put it back in.

Yes thanks for the tip. I didnt know what that was that was in the way so wasnt going to play with it. Now trying to find a replacement is not being easy.

So today has been a good day. I found a really cool guy at the local honda dealer. Yea i know right,  WHAT?? So he looked up all the 200 atc's 1982-86 that had starters looked up the part number and then hr knew someone that remakes them. The picture looked different to me but he said its just a generic picture and that he would guarantee its the right one or he'll refund the money to me. With that info i was able to find a 1984 honda atc 200es wiring diagram and it matches. So starter ordered and reworking harnes now to clean up the engine area up. I hate dangling wires. Wish me luck! 

Oh byw what is this for? Forgot to ask

Should be just a breather hose for the head assembly. Some of them ran to the air box but I don’t know if you still have that in place due to the type of set up on that kart.

      Problem: The ATV starts and runs at idle perfectly. But as soon as I open the throttle, the engine starts to slow down until it stops. On the attached video you can hear the sound of how it works: see video below
      Prehistory: there is a Polaris Sportsman 500 1998, which for about 1.5 years stood in repair, including also replacing CDI with one taken from the same ATV. Finally, the vehicles were on wheels, traveled several kilometers and overheated - forgot to fill the antifreeze Came back home in small moves. The next trip started well, but after 10 km there was a feeling of a small drop in power (even as the vehicle got warm completely) but still drives. Next trip - the situation is repeated. The next test of ATV through time and a huge loss of power from the very beginning. The engine sneezes, does not want to go more than 5 mph.

      What has been done: the carburetor has been replaced with a new one (inexpensive, $ 40), a new spark plug, a new ignition coil, the engine head has been removed, the piston is in good condition, valves were corrected - but the problem was definitely not in them.

      Ignition control unit is suspected. Who faced similar? Please help in solving the problem.
      Thanks in advance.

Please understand i have not touched it yet but if his description is accurate im looking for suggestions on freeing it up before  having to tear it down. I'm hoping to get some great info from the pros on Quadcrazy.

      I've got a Polaris and a Honda that I use regularly on my ranch so they see a lot of abuse.  Fortunately, there is still a Honda dealer nearby but the nearest Polaris dealer is over 1.5 hours away.  They charge way too much money ($1800 for battery, alternator, wire harness and fluids change) so I am starting to learn how to do my own repairs.  The Internet is a wonderful and scary place when it comes to shopping.  Where can I go for a fair deal? Is there a list of preferred vendors that advertise on the forum? 
      Thanks,
      Greg
