Modified KTM 500cc motorcycle engine in a Grass Kart (New Zealands off road go-karting class) was making too much horsepower for the bits attached to it. Bent the engine mount when under power as the chain was under a lot of tension, this caused the chain to slip on the rear sprocket and do this.

It’s actually eaten away at the metal the main body is made of... But jets were locked in due to the threads above being eaten away and float valve pin broke in two when removing the float, half being stuck in the intake hole...it’s a goner

...It twisted off before the c clip. We put it in the air and pulled it right out. Don’t know how they drove this thing without realizing the ass end was wider than it should have been.

I put the plastic in for my protection, still feel itchy all over. I’m hoping it’s just psychological.

They wanted to know if we could just change the cabin filter... The cabin filter was just as bad. Recirc door was broken so it was stuck sucking dirt from outside.

...No there are no bags, or hydraulics. Or really any suspension at all. Every thing has been cut or welded and is pretty much rigid. Yes it’s his daily and only. Constantly has to repair broken or shaved off parts, but doesn’t seem to care. Has cut holes in his frame so his front axle can sit lower. Hitting his oil filter and ripping it open all the time. Claims he’s fixed it. He carry’s around a fire extinguisher in his trunk because it sparks going down the road. Hitting road reflectors sounds like a brick wall. All his words.

2015 Chevy 2500 Dmax, this thing got killed by the belt or fan and flung to hang on top of the power steering pump, had to have been there about 5-6 days and smelled SO bad. I reached down to pull it out and I pulled on its arm and it just ripped off leaving an exposed bone. Almost barfed trying to reach down and pull it out because the smell of rigor mortis squirrel was so awful. Of course my dog wanted to eat it.

His name is Thor and he’s the best dog ever

Rat decided to ONLY chew this ECT connector up. It is buried under the intake manifold and 4 fuel rails.
