How do you install a lawn mower motor on to your go - kart frame?

Lawn mower engines have a vertical crankshaft and are unsuitable for go carts, you need to change the drive angle to horizontal to make the thing work and this requires a set of gears like a car rear end. Get yourself an engine out of a gas edger or small dirt bike and all you will need is a chain clutch and gear for the rear axle, I prefer the dirt bike engine as it already has a clutch and transmission so set up is easy and you will go much faster.
