On the plus side parts are readily available. For my Kombi, a 1976 2 liter model, I have been able to buy every part I have needed apart from the carby spray nozzles, and even then I was able to get by with parts of a different model VW.

rebuild a car engine The beauty of water gas is that it has a combustion co-efficient five times superior to that of refined petroleum and diesel. In effect, with even the most basic water car engine, that equates to something like 50% savings on spending at the gas pump. So it is no wonder that getting on for half a million Americans have already fitted an HHO kit to their vehicles.

The engine drive line calculation is pretty important if you want a go kart that is actually going to move. The size of the drive components are taken into account and then calculated to see how well the go kart will actually perform with the engine size, weight and ratios.

build a car engine The cat-back is a most common exhaust system. It comprises the bent tubing, clamps and the muffler. The size of your tubing really does matter. The more the outflow out of the exhaust fumes, the better the performance. When you tune the engine of your vehicle and improve its performance, you should use bigger pipes as well to make it easy for the exhaust systems to move from the engine. A wider diameter of the pipes enable resistance free emission of gases hence the performance. The tubing with less bends are also preferable so that there will be less disturbance in the gases flowing out.

The strength of the frame can be an illusive thing unless you know a bit about strength of materials and actually how to calculate the cracking stress and bending deflections. Usually what we do is: “If in doubt make it stout.” That is a nice adage but it can be detrimental to a go kart design. You can end up throwing a lot of steel at a section of the go kart and actually not get any headway. So analyzing the frame prior to actually putting it together is a good idea. The last thing you want is a frame that snaps in half, or cracks in the middle.

overhaul a care engine Buy the Haynes Manual for your car – These manuals are car specific and have detailed information as well as pictures to help you. This will be one of the most valuable tools you have the deeper you delve into the project.

Because of these reasons, people are now building their own water powered car. They do not have to build the entire car or buy a new car. They just have to make an HHO generator that converts the engines to run on water.
