Convert That Lawn Mower Engine To a Go Kart
With No Strange Mountings or Internal Engine Modifications Required!
The vertical engine has gotten a bad wrap these days because of its "supposedly" unfriendly geometry. Being vertical, the drive shaft obviously sticks down and is not the easiest to convert to be a horizontal engine.
Most vertical engines get abandoned. They get put aside because they are consdered “not as valuable” as their horizontal brothers. The vertical engine is relegated as the “ugly duckling” of the engine world, when it comes to go karts.
