The 5hp to 6.5hp Manco Dingo Go Karts have an Asymmetric 30 Series Comet Torque Converters with a 3/4" top width belt on the 5hp and 6hp Dingo Go Karts built from 1995 through 2003. They use Manco Belt #5959, they're flat on one side and angled on the other. Dingo Karts built prior to 1995 were equipped with Comet Asymmetric CAT99 Series Torque Converters that used a 5/8" top width belt, Comet Belt #200393A. The Comet CAT99 components are obsolete but we still sell the old style 5/8" top width CAT99 Belts. A torque converter is required on these kart because the rear tires are taller than 15". A centrifugal clutch that uses a chain only would burn up in just a couple of hours so keep a torque converter going.
This page can be used to order parts even if your Manco Dingo doesn't have the Full "Overhead Cage" shown here. The early model Dingo Karts with Briggs and Stratton Engines only had an "Engine Cage". It covered just the engine area, not the Person.
The late model Dingo Karts used Mechanical Disc Brakes, Brake Caliper #115613 (Manco Part #9597). Some of the Older Dingo Karts produced prior to 1995 were equipped with a 4" Brake Band Part #04-9195 (Manco Part #1492), instead of the mechanical disc brakes shown here. Brake Bands are shaped like a horseshoe and wrap around a drum that slides directly on the axle.
If your Dingo is equipped with the discontinued two piece, cast aluminum rims on the front end, Visit the Tri Star Rims Page to order two piece aluminum alloy rims with 5/8" bearings.
Paint Colors: Dingo Karts came in several different colors. Black, yellow and purple were the most popular. The Manco Products Name, Model Number; 285 or 286 and or Serial Number is located on a silver sticker on the floorpan, under the steering wheel area, in front of the seat.
Chain Sizes: The early model 5hp & 6hp Dingo Karts were equipped with the small #35 chain and used a 12 tooth jackshaft sprocket on the drive system. The late model Dingo Karts produced after 1994 used the big #420 Chain and a 9 tooth jackshaft sprocket with a built-in key, Part #8720.
The late model Dingo Models were equipped with a 7/8" Hex Shaped Axle. The early model karts used a 1" Standard Round Axle that stepped down to 3/4, threaded on both ends, 1/4" keyway.
5hp to 6.5hp Dingo Go Karts with Tecumseh or Robin
Subaru Engines use Asymmetric Comet 30 Series Parts.
Late 1990's Model 286-182E Dingo, the E means Electric Start and Dingo Model 286-182Y, the Y means Yellow. These Manco Dingo Karts had Gold Plastic Wheel Covers and Premium Decor. Manco also built a Purple Model 286-182P. Most of the mid to late 90's Dingo Go Karts were equipped with an American, Tecumseh Powersport Engine. All the 5hp, 5.5hp, 6hp and 6.5hp Dingo Go Karts have an American, Asymmetric Comet 30 Series Torque Converter Drive System that uses a belt and a chain. A torque converter is required because of the large 8" Rims on the back. If you're having problems with the drive system, we have all the parts to repair or replace the 3/4" Bore Comet Driver Clutch on the engine crankshaft (Comet #219552A) and the 5/8" Bore Comet Driven Pulley (Comet #219456A) in the back, that slides on the 5/8" jackshaft.
