    yeah i have some. (Used but seem good) but i have an add up on my local cl for kitty parts and get asked all the time for a piston and rings or just rings.. i dont want to part with mine, even though i have 3 sets .. if i could find where to get some i could even out the supply and demand,, and yeah i seen the one on e bay.. these little pistons, i cant believe are going for so much $ i just rebuilt my lil ones kitty. i bought a half a sled with about 5 boxes of parts for 90$ so far i got 2 complete running motors. sold alot of stuff on e bay already. i cant believe how much some of this stuff went for. if u have 1 local like a 72 or 73 and u can get it for cheap jump on it. u can part it out and do pretty well. that or if u got a little one re do it, there pretty neat, i have xtra parts if u need. thanks for the tip though. im gonna try and give him a call and see. ill also give u a buzz a little later. i had to ground my boy last night from the cmp. he gets slick and uses the kindle so i had to disconect the router.. ((i wonder where he gets it from)) lol

    i bypassed govenor and i cant get enough fuel from carb. i adjusted float have larger fuel line larger pet weiner but carb still starts to dry up.. i can use a tecumsah carb from a snow blower but it doesnt look right. im trying to keep it as original as i can. would a mini fuel pump work? or would that flood the bowl of the carb? i know ive seen mini fuel pumps somewhere but im not sure where.. than i could hide the pump under the tank and run it from the lights or something.

    i don't believe a fuel pump will work on a carb originally designed to be gravity fed

    i researched a little more and these are used for mikunis i think, with a a float bowl for a kitty cat its a ben a while i could be wrong but i think it said the fuel pump itself has like a pressure thing to stop from flooding it. i will have to find it all again and update..

    that thing went for over 160$$ wow. and those things are tiny. like a weed wacker.. hmm. i want to talk to ken and see if he could bore 1 of my cylinders out and find a little larger piston and rings to fit,,, that would work. than im sure i could find a carb that would work. hmm im thnkn $$$ for the both of us. and maybe the fastest kitty ever.. i like this idea.. ive got a stock kitty 72 (with original motor) with a few mods secret ones and soon as it snows here a litle, i will atach my gps to it and see how fast i can get it too go, u have to remember top speed is about 7 mph.(with governor.) i took mine of of course. just need more fuel to it. im sure its much faster than lots of kittys around..

    I know this is an old thread. But I have rings for the 72-73 kitty engine. They were costly but I'd be wiling to sell a couple sets.
