    Remove a Generator Head & can Engine be used in Go Karts?
    sixtyfiveford



    Published on May 12, 2017
    Can you use a dead generators engine for a Go Kart or other purpose, find out what you're up against. Also how to remove the generator Rotor.

    I used a 1/2-13 tap and bolt to remove the rotor. If you don't have taps your can buy a basic sae/metric kit like this one http://amzn.to/2r2X9fm for pretty cheap or just a single tap http://amzn.to/2pHVnw2 .

    I used a Craftsman Strap wrench to hold the rotor from spinning http://amzn.to/2r2ug2Y
