Brake Stuck
TJ (Covina, CA) 11/19/2014 6:13 AM
If it is "jammed" he may need push down on the brake arm. This will move the cam and in turn push the shoes away from the backing plate and should free the brake from being stuck.

Brake is Jammed
Paul L. (Hillsborough, NJ ) 11/19/2014 6:07 AM
Got the kart together and running but the brake is now jammed so that the axle no longer turns freely except with a lot of force. We tried to adjust the drum but it is jammed tight by the brake pads which are still engaged even though the brake lever isn't pressed. We think the brake assembly may be defective. How can we fix it?

We really enjoyed this kart
Rob Doogan (Medford, CT) 9/8/2011 7:39 AM
I built this kit with my grandon. It took us about 6 days to build it. My grandson had as much fun building it as he does riding. It's a great kit. It took a few trys to get the steering right becase we put the spindles on backwards. We got the 6.5 engine and it really scoots
