Mine was made by FW Mini-Cars

I was able to pick up new brake, clutch, wheels, and sprocket, plus a seat at Northern Tool http://www.northerntool.com/ but any go-kart type place could have stuff...

you need a low back seat. I have a higher back one and I can't get the body on... I had to make custom brackets for the seats...

I just bought a Brat Go Kart and they shipped it with the oil still in it. Needless to say, it's everywhere but where it should be. I can't find any maintenance info or what type of gas and oil to use. I'm dying to fire this thing up! Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

If you have the original Briggs & Stratton engine I just found the FSM for that and I'd be happy to shoot you the link to it.
