ESSENTIAL EQUIPMENT FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF THE CRANKSHAFT

Overhauling activities regarding the crankshaft, and consequently of the connecting rod, are very particular, as well as delicate (read the article that indicatively describes how a crankshaft is dismantled and reassembled). They act at the “heart” of the engine, where precision is to the hundredth of a millimetre. This is why it is very important to carry out the activities with the utmost care and attention, but, above all, using special and professional tools. This is the most expensive equipment kart drivers can buy if they want to manage the complete maintenance of their karts.

1 CRANKSHAFT DISMANTLING TOOL

This tool allows you to have an optimal base on which to proceed with dismantling using a hydraulic press. Once the shaft is positioned inside the tool, the plate is inserted between the shaft elbow and the connecting rod, passing the connecting rod pin through the slot of the plate. Warning: there are different versions depending on the type of engine (KZ, 100 cc single speed, etc.).
