Kart Engines Producers Since 1978

Tal-Ko have been primarily manufacturing the TKM brand of high performance kart engines since 1978.

Before that we manufactured many engine component parts for other engine brands and it was only a matter of time before we naturally progressed into full blown committed manufacture and race development of our very own TKM engine range.

Tal-Ko are the only U/K kart engine manufacturer and our engines have won multiple championship titles not only in the U/K but also around the world.

With this page we would like to list the numerous models of engines produced by Tal-Ko over the past years and also supply information to help customers and drivers to identify these engines to help with rebuilding and with racing in the Vintage & Historic karting classes.

In the eighties we purchased the succesfull Hewland Arrow kart engine which included all the existing stocks of parts and engines together with all tooling and manufacturing and selling rights. We produced at Tal-Ko a further 200 new engines rebadged under the ARROW name.

Back in 2010 we purchased the WTP 80 water cooled engine from Italy after the WTP company hit financial problems.

Again all the WTP existing spare parts, engines, tooling and manufacturing and selling rights were included in this outright purchase and we are now producing and selling this excellent designed motor.
