All the karts I make use a simple pitman drop-arm to move the track rods 
from right to left and thus steer the kart.


I don't have the measurements for a typical bell crank steering system.

The materials I typicaly use is "Plain Carbon Steel" (mild steel). While 
it may be a bit heavier, it is easy to weld together.

Best of luck,
