go kart frames

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Where can I get information about building a lawnmower engine powered go kart and designs for frames.

-- Kris Hindhaugh (NEIL@NHINDHAUGH.FSNET.CO.UK), April 01, 2001


My son built a go-kart frame in his high school shop. It's hanging on the wall of the garage. Did you just want info to build it yourself, or are you looking to buy one?

I would like to see his plans so i could build one myself. I have a lawnmower engine and i want to build one.

Please respond a.s.a.p!

-- Jason Smith (Jay28_86@yahoo.com), May 01, 2001.

I would also be interested in seeing the plans for the go-kart frame. I want to build a go-kart and am currently looking at different frames. I hope someone can help me. Thanks

-- Ariel Gugliotti (arielgugliotti@hotmail.com), May 07, 2001.

Wait just a second! You guys, ostensibly fans of "Junkyard Wars", want PLANS?! Just bodge one together. Come on!

I stumbled onto this site by accident, although I've seen and enjoy the show from time to time. But all you guys here seem so lacking in creativity and imagination - the single most interesting aspect of this TV show.

If you don't want to bodge, do what engineers do. Design it yourself. Experiment. Learn by trial and error. After all, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge wasn't built in a day...

-- Robert Fincher (BearClaw2000f@webtv.net), July 25, 2001.

I know a good site to buy ALL the parts but they don't come soo cheap but at a high quality including diagrams, it's www.cvmkarts.com/manco.html i too am building a Go-Kart and am almost done I just the pedals and I need to put the engine on ... Oh...... and if anyone knows how the pedals relating with the engine works please tell me. thanks engines from 6.5hp - 20hp are good

-- Nick v (nickyv88@hotmail.com), July 26, 2001.

YOU are all cock suckers except the guy that wants 2 put a cb750cc engine in a kart

i mean lawn mowers ? ? ? what da fuck is that shit u might aswell put a wippersnipper motor in 1 4 fux sake

but i need plans as well 2 put a honda cb1100cc 5speed in 1 now thats a real kart im expecting 200 - 250 k's

-- AzzA (fat_fukkaz@hotmail.com), July 29, 2001.

Alright there's free plans at www.MXK.com and they offer cheap frames. As for the 1100cc oh hell yah thats a bad ass idea. The 750cc is also a good choice but I prefer the 900cc Honda engine out of a crotch rocket. 120 easily in a go kart but the frame needs to be modified for the extra torque. Larger axle larger gears. Have fun. PS better put some big ass slicks on that fucker.

-- Smith (smith@sendit.sendit.NoDak.edu), July 29, 2001.

I have a racing go kart frame built too low to the ground, I would like to trade for and off road frame to use on dirt and grass.

-- Matthew Myrick (smyrick@schoollink.net), August 05, 2001.

Why are you wasting time building while you can use that time to percolate plans to attain a go kart for free. Example go to your local cart track and steal one. Tear the useless sh*t of and supe it up. Steal a lawnmower/tractor and tear the useless sh*it off and supe it up ( try to convert it to a low rider hehe). Steal a golf cart...actually forget it...electric engine.

Steal a car. Steal a plane. Steal an ak-74 and don't go down without a fight. If you survive defect to East Germany. Steal an Mil Hind-D. A nice piece of Eastern Bloc Technology. Start world war 3. Home for dinner by 5 pm.

-- FIGARO FIGARO (andsy_vlaskovic@hotmail.com), August 07, 2001.

I would also like plans for the lawnmower engine go kart. Thank you

-- Dustan Rhoten (lildrho@yahoo.com), August 11, 2001.

If you could I would appreciate some kind of plans for a go kart frame.. Ive been designing some but they are too complicated. I like complicated plans, but I cant build them. Im putting a relatively large engine in the back and I need front room for a large battery and water tank... if you have any such plans that are close to that I would appreciate seeing them.. thank u...

-- Scott Taylor (drknesstilldeath@aol.com), August 19, 2001.

Could Someone send me the plans for a lawn mower go kart Thanks

-- Brendan M (ashbren@home.com), August 27, 2001.

Your all a bunch of useless cocksuckers. Get a fucking life. I can't believe out of all the info on the damn net there are no plans for a fucking go cart. Bullshit.

-- snoop dog (snoop_dog40@hotmail.com), September 03, 2001.

A few friends and I built a Pretty sweet go cart. As long as you have a little idea of what it is your doing it's not hard. I think using an engine with a vertical shaft would be a lot easier than using a lawn mower engine. We got a 6.5 hp engine for 75 dollars at home depot. We think the guy liked us. However it was from a pressure water, and we sold the pump part off on ebay for 90 dollars. So if your thinking of builing one id try for a vertical shaft.

-- Aaron Matts (amathes@hotmail.com), September 04, 2001.

I have designed some plans using square tubing, which is very easy to work with. The kart is ALOT stronger than commercial go-karts, you don't want it to break while you're having fun... the kart is designed for a horizontal shaft 5hp briggs. The plans also come with complete bill of materials. Check them out at http://www.wallenderengineering.com Or if you don't have the money to spend for really good plans these people have free plans http://mxk.com/1ykplans/ykmenu.htm If you have questions regarding karts email me and I will try to answer them for you. Happy Karting... remember to wear a helmet.

-- Bill Wallender (gears_23@yahoo.com), September 04, 2001.

Hey guys i hate to break it to you buts it way to hard to even bother using a lawm mower engine on a go kart due to many things that cause conflict just go to a small engines store and pick up a old snow blower engine and use that it will work great once you have that your on you way

Seriously, just weld a heap of square tubing together in a fashion that best suits your purpose.

As for 190mph being a real go kart... eh eh eh how about putting a bridge port 13B rotary in one.. 280hp+ go figure

-- steve (steve2091890@yahoo.com.removethisbithere), November 14, 2001.

ok ok, you guys are just pathetic! I have a couple of ways u can "get hold of a frame" A.) drag ur sorry azz to the nearest junkyard B.) use the big lump on top of your shoulders C.) go to on of the ABOVE sites that those peeps were generous enough to give you! jeez

I am currently working on my junkyard project. Hayabusa (uncles old bike) motor, my frame has already cracked & split 2x :) hehe. But unlike the rest of these loners I AM continuing on with EXPERIMENTATION! comeon peeps its NOT hard, if you don't have the imagination or drive to design one yourself or to go to the junk heap, than give up gokarts and go to something a little less "creative" like snap together models or knitting or something a little less strenuous on ur little minds!

guess what , these guys are right. ive been looking for frames for about 20 minits and the ones thell give you look like pieces of shit, and im not willing to pay for someone to do the fun part for me. just build something like this that fits your axel and steering parts | |----------------------| | |______| |______| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |______| |______| | | | | | |----------------------| |

I currently have a 5HP lawnmower engine which I'm designing a frame for. The only thing I'm concerned about is that the engine has a vertical shaft. Does anyone have any suggestion on how to link this to my rear wheels and how to control the throttle from idle to full speed. thx

-- serious dumb kunt (dumb_kunt@hotmail.com), November 28, 2001.

Hey All, I have been making some plans of my own for a go kart. I was wondering if any of you knew how to place a 200 hp engine on a go- kart, i have aquired one from a neighbor and was wondering if any of you knew about how to place this motor on a frame? I need to get the weight positioned correctly so it wont flip. And who ever was calling people fags, well it is possible to make a go-kart go 198 mph, um...this dude i know made his go about 150, but anywayz i want to build mine for offroading and i can't quite figure some of these minor things out. Any help, including some equations for weight distribution, and pictures of somebody who has used a car engine would be great! Thanx, Dan ;)

-- Dan (dacubsrule@email.com), November 29, 2001.

Ok y in the hell do you biuld go-karts once you put a moter that bigger than a lawn mower in it its not a go-kart. go-karts are for kids not grown men. call it a off road buggy, any thing but a "go-kart"

here some help for the reall men

think of junkyard wars and mad max, get the pic ok thats what reall men build to play around on, other than there girl friends. hehe lol lmao

out you guys have fun and build the un-normal ok

-- lets leave it at Chris (oparatior@techgod.org), November 30, 2001.

My sujestion to you Kris is to NOT build a go-kart powered off of a lawn mower engine. My two reasons are: 1. You would have to totaly re-build the engine to run on its side witch would be quite costly and 2. If not putting it on its side get a buch of tourqe converters and gears to allow u to run it standing up with the sping power bar on the side, again quite costly. I my self bought a used 8HP snow blower engine. It works quite well but I had to fiddle around with the engine for a bit to get it to work the way I like it. But for frames I would recomend looking up a go-kart store. They usually will give you lots of information on your project and would be hapy to SELL you plans for a frame. Cant get any thing for free any more. I hope I was some help. Please e-mail me and tell me if this helped any. Talk to you later.

-- Christopher Turcot (chris_is_the_bomb69@hotmail.com), December 19, 2001.

ANOTHER THING!! Why would you put a 200HP on ur go-kart? Serriosly your gonna kill yourself on it. How big is it? If you want my help e-mail me all the info on the engine and frame if you have one built already. I would not recomend puting a 200 on the kart. Serriosly man your gonna get spees around 500-600 KM/H. I am dead serrios on that. At those speeds its gonna flip or break or somthing. But any ways e-mail me wit all the info on it. Thank you

-- Christopher Turcot (chris_is_the_bomb69@hotmail.com), December 19, 2001.

OMFG!!! I have just read some more of these e-mails. Some of you guys are so stupid. Yes lets put a 3HP engine on your cart. Even better lets put a 2HP WEED WACKER engine on it. For gods sake guys. Go buy a real engine for your cart. Somthing over 7HP. If you put something less on that it is gonna suck and when ur driving it your gonna notice that turtles and snails are passing you. Get some real egnines crist.

-- reid (phat_dadi@hotmail.com), February 03, 2002.

Hey Kris, um lawnmower go karts are VERY hard to built cus they are verticle shaft engines and then the belts twist... the best would be to get a 5 horse or bigger horizontal engine, cus u can mount a centrifugal clutch, a belt and straight to the tire or axel, its way easier man, ne way email me !

THANKS WE LIKE YOUR SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-- Matthew F (Sonnyboy200@aol.com), February 07, 2002.

Ok, one tip to you all go kart enthusiasts, um like u need NOT a big engine to go fast theres a trick to make your engine go fast.On the throttle control, theres a GOVERNOR, now if u take the governor off, theres usually a spring and a piece of metal, this is what prevents your engine from hitting the higest possible speed.So once u take that off, re-attach the throttle cable and start it up.Also one BIG tip, if u have choke on your engine remove it, and one LAST thing, take off your shitty muffler and attach a lead pipe, about 6 inches long.IVE done all of these mods on ONE engine and it increased speed up to 5MPH! Try it, it really works, also i got easy go kart plans, so email me if u want some!!! they work for lawnmower engines and horizontal ones too!!!!

-- John (crosman13@hotmail.com), February 07, 2002.

Gidday Do you have any other tips on gokarts and where can I go on the net to find a good go kart plan? Cheers Daniel

-- Daniel (v8dan@zfree.co.nz), February 09, 2002.

Hey Man, Sure, well my scanner is broken, but I have a wonderful book that shows how to build a go kart, in 2 weeks.So Ill send u the plans later but meanwhile ill give u an idea of whta ure looking at as a frame , the engine, the tires and shit.Ok well first off, the floor is consisted of angle iron and a piece of ply wood, ok the angle iron is cut and bolted in a rectangle shape, to fit your length and your width and leaving room for the engine, then the ply wood is cut proper size , just to fit in the angle iron and then its bolted on.Ok, next u should buy a steel rod, or an axel(the steel rod they sell in hardware stores are cheaper than the axels that u would buy at a go kart store, like a rod is $18 and an axel is $65) then get 2 wheels to fit it, like wheel barrol tires, or dollie tires.Then buy 4 cotter pins and a large pulley.Get four bolts and a drill, drill four holes in the RIM of your tire and drill four holes on your pulley, now get 4 spacers(like small pieces of pipe, all mUST be equal length, now put all the bolts through the pulley and then slide the spacers on and then throught the hole of the tire rim and secure it by screwing on 4 nuts on the other side of the rim.OK, now slide bothe of the tires on, leaving at least 1 inch of the axel on the out side of the rim, then drill 2 holes on each side of the rim(u drill in to the axel)and then stick the cotter pins in and your tires are secure>by the way, dont give upo, it took me 1 whole hour to drill 4 holes, this is STEEL ,man, use a good drill and get ready to sweat.Ok enought of that, next, get two U bolts and mount the axel to the plywood frame(there are 2 screws on the top of each u bolt, drill holes 2 holes in the plywood and put the u bolt over the axel and then into the 2 holes u drilled and bolt them on the top of the plywood)ok, next, choose the engine that u want, IT MUST BE HORIZONTAL SHAFT!!!! Ok , like anywhere from 3.0 hp up to 8 is good, I reccomend 5 cus it will go fast(30)mph and give u good power, 3 is for small kids and 8 is for large teens.Ok next Buy a centrifugal clutch, (a engine shop should sell em or a karting or a hardware)the clutch should be a pulley drive, u can buy em on line too, ne way make sure its a belt kinda clutch and that it fits the shaft of your engine, the clutch is easy to install, all u do is get a little hex key and put it on your shaft and then slide the clutch on.Ok next mount it on your frame,(the motor) and position it above the wheel that u mounted the pulley on.Then buy a belt, (its like a car belt)and place it on both pulleys, the good thing about a centrifugal clutch is that it needs no cable, (it works by when u accelerate the clutch engages and when u de cellarate it disengages.Ok now get another set of wheels(2) for the front steering part, ok now u can build your own steering (out of angle iron) but its hard(EMAIL ME IF U WANT THE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO BUILD A STEERING UNIT)FOR U BEGGINERS, I reccomend taking a pedal cart ripping off a stering unit and mounting it on your frame., probably with pipe strapping.Ok make sure u take off the hard plastic wheels off the steering unit on the pedal cart and put your own inflatable tires on.Now get a cable and make a throttle out of that and for the brakes, take a pipe and put a T fitting on one end and bolt it on by the tire, so that when u pull up on the pipe the T fitting rubbs on the tire.GO luck and have fune, I REPEAT< ILL HAVE PROFESSIONAL PLANS AND PICTURES ONCE MY SCANNER GETS WORKING.!!!So email me crosman13@hotmail.com ttyl

-- John JAckson (crosman13@hotmail.com), February 09, 2002.

Using a chainsaw engine is much better than a lawn mower engine cause a lawn mower essentially just cuts air an grass which doesnt take much power but a chainsaw engine cuts through wood which takes much more power so they are much stronger

Hey this is to all the retards out there. Notice when ever you guys say "Oh 200cc is weak i got a 500cc engine!" Like you guys are making up for somthing you dont have (dick). For the chainsaw idea, it would work great on a scooter, but not on a gokart. A lawnmower engine has lots of surface to push agains't. A chainsaw has like 3 inches of space toput power on. USE THE TRANY OFF OF A RIDEING LAWNMOWER. Jeeze theres so much internet out there, take some time and look.

what you do is try and find a cheap metal frame because thats better than making one yourself that would take ages! then get a fan belt or chain and attatch that obviously to the lawnmower engine and the back wheel of your frame,but im not the king at this stuff myself so log your ass onto www.offroadkartplans.com or just contact redwood karts ltd on no: 01253 713266

Hey all, I built a wooden go-kart frame in a day, and I have a 31cc engine wich is powerful enough to make it go, the only prob is that I don't have any way to get the power from the engine to the back wheels.

dont forget that if you plan on driving this over almost any bumps/jump or speed go carts will always need tinkering even if you build a tank like go cart you need to tinker so be ready to spend time working on them. cartshop whitney point ny

-- no way no (no@stny.rr.com), May 27, 2002.

I want the plans of the go kart. I would really appreciate it. I had a friend that tried to make a go kart with a lawn mower engine, he said that since the shafts are not the same that it would be cheaper and easier to buy an engine. I would keep the engine in the lawn mower and change to smaller pullies, lower the mower and put smaller wheels. Taking off the deck would also be a good idea.

Please email me about the Go Kart plans, and if you want more info on lawn mower go kart.

Want to make ur tiny little lawn mower engine be bad ass?? Here's a site that give a general idea of how to make a Super charger out of a smog pump...You have to know soemthing about engines to put it on and use it though, ohterwise ur waisting ur time...

P.S. These little "Super Charger's" can also be put on motorcycles, and cars. have fun, and haul ass!..........Oh, no wait...there's more... For all of you JACK ASSES who keep yelling at these little kids shut the hell up. 6 hp horizontil shat Briggs and Strat motor can pull me around at about 45. That's more than fast enough for a tiny go kart with no suspension. Ur absolutly STUPID to put something bigger than 20 hp in a go kart. If you want to have something that will really haul ass than get out of carting and into rails and buggies. I'm sick of all ur lame crap while picking on people looking for a cheap fun ride. Go karts are an execlent place to start off when younger before moving up to the real time bad asses.

I posted on here a long time ago wanting plans, but my friend and I ended up bodging one together. Check it out here. You can also look at our other stuff, and we are currently building one out of a lawnmower that looks a lot better. The pics and stuff for that one will be up soon.

-- Greg Vetterick (gddegake@pcpartner.net), June 27, 2002.

Guys.... you want to build a gokart? damn... quit with the ass scratching, and BUILD a gokart. WTF do you need plans for? go look at a picture of a gokart, and simplify it.. geez. And the only way for a lawnmower engine to work, is IF it's a 2 stroke, but don't bolt it right in... you need to turn the carb 90. If enough of you need information to do this, e-mail me and I'll put up a 'how to' website. I also sell the adaptors for Lawnboys for $20 (CAN) each. Use the MKX plans but sit on the floor and measure things out. Also, if you can find an old snowmobile or whatever, cannibalize it. My buddy and I are using the steering support hoop off of a snowmobile, as well as a 250cc engine, and drivetrain, and a custom axle made from that off of a Pinto or whatever. The tires are off of a ride-on lawnmower. Use your imagination. I've got a converted Lawnboy engine forsale, if you want a simple fart-around-the-house kart. It's 121cc, and is VERY similar to the racing engines of the mid-1960's.

#1 - Yes you can use a lawn mower engine. #2 - Yes you can use a chain saw engine. If you want to go, but not too fast, then anything in the 1.5 HP to 3 HP range is fine. Shit, mopeds use a 50cc engine that gives approx 1.5 braking HP and does 25 MPH down hill with pissa gas milage. It's all a matter of you're looking to do. These assholes with the 500cc and bigger motors are just gonna wind up with tar burns. If you choose to go that fast, stay off my street. In order to use a verticle shaft engine you'll need to convert the energy into something more convenient. The use of a transaxle from a rider lawn mower is a good option. Twisting a v-belt 90 degrees is not. Try multi-jack shafts. Let the motor drive one shaft twisted 45 degrees and then drive another shaft with that twisted 45 degrees. Here's another idea, mount a tire to the shaft of the engine and have it contact another tire shifted 90 degrees. There are shit loads of ways to do it. One guy does mention that there is more work to make a verticle shaft engine cart and it really is easier to just a horizontal if ya can. Chain saw engines are usually smaller than the clunky 3.5 HP L.M. jobs, but they rev quick being a 2 stroke. This buys you some breathing room. A chain saw engine can easily be mounted to bicycle. The chain sprockets are nearly the same. Running out space here. Just put your mind to it. It aint that hard. When I finish my latest jet powered kart project I'll post a link.

I would say use a Briggs & Stratton engine if you can get hold of one. Also, getting that type of engine from a scrapyard or something would also be a great idea, as if it had problems, you could strip it down and rebuild it. I'm looking for a go-kart frame myself, and i have a Briggs & Stratton engine and took it to pieces. I have steel tube to build a frame but i need plans to work from. Please reply if you have any ideas. Thx

-- Blake Wright (engindr@aol.com), July 31, 2002.

in order to use a lawn engine to power a go-kart you have to put a pully on the engine (this one will be horizontal) then another pully on the rear axle (this one will be vertical). then when you are putting the belt on the pullys there will be a 90 degree turn so they belt isnt a loop is is more of an eight..

-- homer (the_trickyone@hotmail.com), August 02, 2002.

hello all. i resently have worked on a gocart made from a lawnmower engine. the trick is you need a gear box. try this. on many selfpropeled lawn mower there is a small gearbox or "transmision" as the manufactures call it. go to you nagbor hood dumb and grab and old self propelled lawnmower. (thats what i did and it cost nothing) now you want to make sure you get one with a metal gearbow. the newer lawnmowers have plastic one. they are not strong enuf. once you get a metal one you will have to do some renforcement to it. you will have to weld the top roder on even if it looks solid. also most gearboxs from lawnmowers have the gear held on to the axel with a pin and there is bar that you can use to put it in nutral. FORGET ALL THAT!!! it is not nearly storng enuf for a gocart. you need to weld the gear stright to the axel. trust me its the only way it will work. for the clutch use a centrifical clutch. the cost 30$ new but you can buy them cheaper on ebay. weld a cog onto the gear roder that comes out of the gear box and put the cluch on the botem of the lawnmower engine. run a chain from the clutch to the gear box and there you go. you will proble have to do some changes to the lawnmower carb. if you would like instruction on how to do this please e-mail me and ill try and get back to you with pictures. sorry but i have no picture of a reiforced gear box because i resently got a generator engine and now i am using that. sorry agian but i can still help so email me with questions.

i read all the responds to how to build it, and what motor to run. 750cc, 1000cc, and them doing 60-120 wow, but i would have to say, i started building my in shop class in high school, and i got most of the alum tubes free, and i made a solid frame, and roll cage around it all too. for an engine i use a 1990 ski doo 583 rotax, liquid cooled. i used the same clutch and stuff from the sled, and ran a chain to my back axle, which is off an atv. i took the front suspension off of another atv, so it has four wheel suspension all the way around. thing does about 120, and it stays pretty cool in the summer. anyone want pics, email me for them.

Hey guys (and girls), I am interested in building a go kart this december jus to thrash around my streets and yard. I live on 10 acres but can only use a little of it as for livestock and rock and stuff. So I was wondering wot type of engine i should use in a kart. I don't want to have gears or anything and I was reading that alot of ppl use lawn mower engines, but are they very powerful??? It isn't going to be a big off road kart, jus one high enough off the ground so it can go overthe grass and things. Please help me as I have always had a love for go karts but neva had a chance to have one, except for now. As plans would be appreciated, jus so I could get ideas. Thanx everyone. warren

Stop this lawnmower,crap, ive tried it and the beelts keep breaking or if they stay on they slip so your kart dont move.Trade the bastard in for a horizontal engine.U no u can take any 5 horsepower motor,and with mods make it run 25 horses.Like go to a kart shop, and ask them to soupe it up to as much as u want, yeah it costs money, but it beats a stock 25 hp engine.also if u want plans, my scanner dont work so i might scan it wen i get it working.Other than that, use common sence.take 4 pieces of angle iron and bolt it up and put a 3/4 piece of ply wood in it.I have built motor bikes, go peds and karts, from scratch, no plans , just my imagination.Then take your head and put it to work. email me 4 questions

This is a respon to -- Daniel (danielframe@attbi.com), October 12, 2002 .Listen, i have had alot of go karts and mini bikes, and have experienced this problem be for.Now there could be a few things, your carburator, needs a rebuild or a cleanup, you have a poor vent on your the cap on your gas tank, or your valves leak, like they dont seat properly, a 5 briggs has 2 valves, now, u'll no if they are leaking, by accelerating to the higest point going down hill and jaming on the breaks.If the engine coughs, like making a shotgun type sound, u no they leak, so i recomend checki0ng it out.At first clean out your carb, cus like if its dirty it will give little acceleration, because of hardly any fuel.Also get someone(if u dont no how) to adjust the rich and lean mixture on your carb, so that it will idle properly.90% of engines dont idlee because, they run too lean or rich or that the idle screw is in not screwed in too far.

Lawnmower engines are a poor choice in go-kart engines. They are set up with a vertival crank-shaft, and meant to run with it that way. A conversion would be difficult and time consuming. Just use a horizontal shaft engine, i.e. a snowbloweror roto-tiller engine, something of that nature.

1. 2 cycle engines do high revs, so have to be geared down. but would work. mounting them sucks! 2. ryobi weedeaters can have a cultivator transmission. use that for gear box. i made one on a pedal cart. works well for little kids. 3. lawnmower engines are d*mn near impossible for carts. u need to use a rider transmission. mounting them sucks! 4. idea for turbo, use a gas leaf blower. but controlling air flow correctly next to impossible. 5. i would like to see/try the pvc pipe cart frame. hope it doesnt fall apart! 6. building frames mostly takes tools, parts and know how. its easier to buy a used frame. 7. it really isnt worth messin with a lawnmower engine to put on a cart. if it was easy i would have done it a long time ago. 8. shipping on frames is so high, youd be better of buying local. 9. i built 15 frames from scratch and 25 used ones were rebuilt. sold all of them. 10. the baddest of all carts only needs a racing 125 motorcycle engine. good luck and dont flip out. robert.

To all of you that are looking for parts or frames for a go-kart. Please look at www.northerntool.com for answers. I have found many parts in their published catalogue. I dont know if they have all the parts online or not, but the printed catalogue has everything including a book on how to build a cart (the book is $10.00) I also dont think that this is for the racing cart person, these are just fun carts for off road or neighborhood use.

-- James (bassplayindrumer@netscape.net), November 16, 2002.

ok i have 6 go karts all of them i made and i am only 14. all you have to do is find some one with an old lawn mower they dont want any more and fix all the problems with it . and when it runs right and moves most importantly you just go to a local hardware store and get a bigger belt and a bigger pulley for the pulley the is on the engine drive shaft. or a smaller pully on the transmission with a smaller belt. and you probably want to take the deck off also. but after that you are done basically. but if you want it to have a sleek look and be really low to the ground this isnt for you, but you can buy smaller tires which would give you great excelleration. this plan has worked very well for me and it is very cheap so i hope this helps you all

-- Doug (douglas.miron@sympatico.ca), November 24, 2002.

why use a lawnmower? of all of the engines out there - a lawnmower! use a small bike engine (aprilia RS 125 or 250 if you want speed) or if you want serious speed like myself (i am only 18) use a big bike moter like a fireblade or a hyabusa, you looking at 1/4 mile in sub 9's!!!

I've just built two frames with roll cages. I started by drawing it out on a large piece of cardboard and then kinda used that as a template. They look like little sprint cars. I am starting a third now. There are plenty of online companys that offer frame kits and plans.I got my parts for spindles, axles , wheels etc.off the internet. American Karting spaecialties.

Hey all, I just stumbled onto this site. I'm building a 2 seat off- road buggy utilizing a two cylinder 4 stroke 200cc Honda motorcycle engine. It is still in the works but I have been documenting all my design work and parts locating on my home site. Anyone interested my URL is http://users.cwnet.com/jhenry/buggy/kart.html Anyone doing the same please drop me a line with your web address and I'll post it to my links page.

-- Jerry Henry (jhenry@cwnet.com), December 21, 2002.

come on, a go cart is so simple. you dont need plans, take a welder and some tuben and start bodgen. And if any of you are like me, over 150 pounds, a lawnmower engine will not go very fast. find an old four strok dirt bike engine. if you dont screw up the gears and chain a shit you will go 60mph.EVEN THE BIG GUYS.

-- colin williams (www.Ilovepaintball@juno.com), December 22, 2002.

A "Go-Kart" is a very specific and deceptively precise racing machine. They were used in the late 50's - early '60's, and the general requirements are:

1. TWO-cycle engine. (McCullough chainsaw engines were the most popular, but beginners sometimes used Clinton lawnmower engines)

2. No suspensions (except the flex of the very specific welded chrome molybdenum tubing frames that were the only thing that held up) no transmissions, and clutches were wasteful of power. We started the machine by picking up the back end and running, then slamming it down and jumping in. The drive was always a solid chrome moly steel axle hung in High-quality Timken roller bearings bolted to vertical carriers welded to the frame, with a keyed large sprocket on the axle and a small one on the engine shaft. The chain was motorcycle roller chain, #38. We used special clean-burning white oil mixed with the gas. There was a fuel class also (nitromethane mix) but you had to modify the engine and carbs heavily. Most racing engines were heavily modded anyway, even in standard gas classes.

3. About 2 1/2" ground clearance. Kept them from rolling in tight turns, which due to precise frame geometry, they handled VERY well.

4. Light steel or cast magnesium (better) wheels with pneumatic tires - usually very wide "slicks" were best for asphalt tracks, and narrower slicks on the front wheels became popular (reduced weight.)

5. Road tracks with turns - no stock-car type oval tracks. This was more like European road racing.

6. 2-cycle engines have breathtaking acceleration. ON e I once rode with FOUR Macs on it did over 75mph - and 2" off the ground, with the vibration (and noise!) of the four engines - mufflers eat power so no one used them for racing - all I could see was a blur - and the acceleration actually drew my mouth and face back like an astronaut! BUt four engines are almost impossible to synchronize and keep them that way with all that vibration. A real tuning nightmare.

Some links to show you what a racing kart looks like - the "Go-Kart 800" made in Azusa CA, came first as a kit. UNless you repainted it it was candy-apple red laquer. A gorgeous machine - and this company coined and trademarked the term Go-Kart. Other brands were referred to as "karts." THere were at least two magazines devoted to karting and its technology and many companies built and sold racing parts. All hardware, by the way, was aircraft grade stainless. It had the definitive triangle design stamped on it.





Have fun kids! Remember, you can't build a safe racing machine (these things are FAST!) with nuts, bolts, and standard steel, or eyeball the geometry. You will get badly injured. We also wore certified helmets - Bell, McHal, etc.

-- Nitul Mujli (Dodger838@hotmail.com), December 29, 2002.

anybody here interested in buying my go kart frame? I'm selling it for $350. It is basically an off road style kart set up for dual a- arm front suspension that you can buy on ebay for cheap. It has a rear suspension system and the shocks are included for the rear. It also has a heavy duty roll cage. The whole kart is made out of 1" heavy duty piping and wire feed welds on every joint. This kart would be awesome with a dirtbike or snowmobile motor. I'm also including a 1 inch axle with srocket and heavy duty industrial bearings. Hubs are also included. Email for pics

Hi everyone I would like to build my own go-cart my dad was going to help me when i was younger but he passed away and i would like to do that father and son dream by my self now. so i would like it if someone could tell me how to do it. with the plans i need and maybe some pictures that would be a big help thanks i am now 23 years old.

-- Dennis M G (hotbuns6450@yahoo.com), December 31, 2002.

for all of you looking for frames find some old bed frames (angle iron) and bolt it together put cross members on angles from the main corners to make it strong or insert plywood in the center. you can even build one from a old ariens type riding mowers, the low type , not tractors, and lower the wheel base, and they already have the steering on them. good luck.

-- andy greenhough (randeyandy66@aol.com), January 05, 2003.

Look all you guys need to do is imagine. im 15 and i know how to build one. just find a lawnmower with rear engine and vertical shaft engine. on some of the lawnmower there should be some kind of transmission box that has vertical belt shaft on it. then you need to buy a belt clutch and put it on your motor. off of the trans mission it runs onto a chain drive onto the rear. this will allow you need to do is take off the rear and weld a frame together. you can even use the existing frame from the lawn mower and lower it. you can get bigger tires and whatnot. if the lawn mower does not go fast just change the ratio.all you need to have is the pully from the engine biggger or equal to the size of the one on the transmission. than make the sproket from the trans to the rear axle bigger than the rear sproket. i did this for my garden tractor. it can go about 35mph!. it scares the people in my development. if you want to see what it is supposed to look like than email me. you can also do it with a from mounted motor like i did.

-- Tim Bonis (junkymonkey302@yahoo.com), January 08, 2003.

your waisting your time building a go kart out of a vertical shaft motor, if you use the gear box to power it, it will run no faster than the riding mower, besides get a horizontal shaft engine or better yet its cheaper to just buy one already built.

-- SHORTY (ivegotskillz@nvme.com), February 05, 2003.

Come on pplz. It is easy to mount a 5hp briggs vertical shafted lawnmower motor on a horizontal kart. 3 steps. 1. Manufacture a vertical plate with all holes slotted to adjust chain tension that mounts horizontal on the kart. 2. swap the carb out with one off of a horizontal shafted motor. 3. change the oil slinger that connects to the connecting rod of the piston of the crank. this allows for a vertical safted motor to be mounted horizontally, and you can you use a centrifugal clutch w/chain drive.

OK, first of all, you seem as though you might know how the internet works. There's this little place called Google.com . You type in keywords for what you want, it then crunches massive numbers and eventually spits out a list of possible websites with what you're looking for. By typing "Go Kart Plans" I was able to retrieve a plethera of sites that sell or have free plans. Even pictures, for those who don't really want the plans, but a starting point. As far as power goes, I wouldn't recommend building your first kart with a huge engine. Not only will it be dangerous, but it will break parts more and cost more to repair/operate. My first kart was a prebuilt Manco Products kart from kartworld.com. It had an 8hp motor with a centrifugal clutch. It did about 50MPH, and quickly (verified by local police on a closed course. Ahh the beauty of being a politicians son). The next step if you want more power/speed is to get a torque converter kit, which varies the "gear-ratio" using a two pulley clutch system. The ones currently available adjust automatically from a neck jerking 19:1 ratio, down to an eye watering 6:1 ratio. It works just like a snowmobiles drivetrain. My advice, buy a plan for a 5-10hp engine, build it, and tweak the hell out of it. If you don't want plans, get an erector set or legs, and build something like a go kart. Draft the plastic away into metal. One good rule is to build the kart magnitudes stronger than it needs to be, then when you happen upon an old twin or 4cyl motorcycle engine, you can really juice the thing up. I'm currently planning a Kawasaki 600cc (ZX-6 Ninja) engined shifter kart. Balls to the walls, and happy crashing. -WingZer0 P.S. Feel Free to Email. Leave out the "NO5PAM-" of course.

Hi guys

Most important thing to know: Dont let somebody else ride your kart!!

Recently I bought an old 250cc racing kart frame for R1000 ($130), huge bargain. I fitted a 40hp 250cc motorbike engine and 10" tyres to give some ground clearance (about 13cm).

The kart was potent, massive accell (hard not to spin) and a top of around 140kph.

3h after having the kart running properly, I gave my friend a chance to ride in the park out side our house. 10sec later he drove it solid into a tree at 50kph: ripped a front wheel off and bent the frame.

Currently repairing it, also designing a 3-seater with 1000cc motor!!

-- TSC (tsccopeland@yahoo.com), April 16, 2003.

To all those who have vertically shafted engines. I also have one. I have built several go-karts in the past.....all of them have had the shaft coming out the side. Well my most recent kart was built from an old power wheels metal frame and an old mower engine that I got for free. I have mounted the engine on its side. I had to modify the carburator/gas tank set up so that it was sitting correctly. This is a fairly simple process with most 3.5 horse Briggs and Stratton engine. It seems to run fine. I will just have to see how long it lasts. I am not sure if the piston is getting enough lubrication. But so far so good. And what have you got to loose......if you burn up the motor it's not like you were going to use it for anything else anyway.

Good luck

I am currently building my go cart i have the frame just about finished and i am working on the mounting brakets for my yahmaha YZ80 that i am puting on it i was wouldering if any body know where i can find an axel strong enough to run that engine. and the is no need for people to buy a frame they are not that hard to make you can make your own plans and then just take your time welding and then if you brake it you know how to fix it.

I'm looking to freestyle build a go kart for myself and I was wondering if anyone has some tips, tricks, or suggestions that might help me out. What do you do for axel(s),brakes,steering,wheels,etc? I recently saw a kit you could buy on the internet that had all that stuff but I forgot the link...bummer. I'm thinking of using 1 inch steel piping for the frame, I'm trying to purchase as much of this stuff through non-go kart parts dealers. If anyone knows the best places to buy that could help me out a lot...

dude, you can build a go-cart out of a lawnmower engine. even though it's got a vertica shaft, all you do is run a belt from that to the wheels. i'm tryin to build one as a little summer project (me and some of my friends) and i'm havin some trouble getting plans and such. any help would be much appreciated. (also a cheap frame). thanx

-- Mike (Jump_Man_MJ@Hotmail.com), June 27, 2003.

If you want to use a lawnmower engine on a Go Kart that has a vertical output shaft you can remount it horizontally. But...you must rotate the carb to make it lie horizontal* as it was before and the engine must be a 2 stroke. (*I have done this by making an aluminium adapter block.) You can not rotate four stroke engines due to there internal lubrication...it will leak oil and seize (whereas a two stroke has the oil in the gas)

-- james (itsjamesn@hotmail.com), August 11, 2003.

guys....you drive me crazy......all you guys that wanna build a go- kart with a lawnmower engine, dont waste money on a good frame....just make a frame outta wood and screw the lawnmower engine onto it. put a pulley on the shaft of your engine (which should be sticking out the bottom of your engine). Oh ya, did I mention you have to make a big whole in the wooden frame where the shaft of you engine will go?. Then put a pulley on you back axle. Now put a belt on the cranksahft pulley and on the rear axel pulley. connect any cable to your throtle at the carburator of your engine and hoook that cable up to your throtle pedal in the front of your frame. the steering is a simple 2by4 wooden block pivoting on a bold and washers. there you go..........now you got your steering. Hook up a cable to one end of your front axel (the by4 wooden block) and to the other end. make sure that cable passes through a steering column wich you can make with wood easiliy. that should be a hint and a help for all ya guys out there ........this is a website that will show you how to make ONLY the frame.......engine isnt included in the plans......... http://www.things2make.com/Things2make_files/Instructions%20over% 205/Gokart.htm

-- Jason Bradbury (ozrider_482@hotmail.com), October 25, 2003.

your gonna have a few problems when you start trying to put a lwanmower on a go-kart because your pully thing is at the bottom of the motor so how you gonna get the chain o belt to the shaft so oyu can go a better thig to use would be a motor that come off a tiller because the pullly is on the side of the engine and you can turn it so oyu can hook it to he shaft but either way you got to buy a centrifical clutch like on a chainsaw you might could try usin one off of a chainsaw but i dont think it would work its made different i think bu good luck with your go-kart im building me one right now but im using a 250 blaster engine

-- Josh Jones (hondaquadracer96@aol.com), October 26, 2003.

LOL if some of yall knew any thing you would know how to mount a lawnmower engin on a go-kart. first you take a go-kart frame then mount the engine above and in front of the rear axle then you get a steal pole then mount a pully and a sproket on the pole then you get a rear axle that has wheels then with one wheel off mount a nother sprocket on the axle then you mount the rubber belt on the pullys and there it is a lawn mower engine on a go-kart. ha ha ha and all this from a 16 year old guy that has never built a go-kart before ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

-- Killer (a1killer@msn.com), November 01, 2003.

HA HA HA. Mr KILLER.I would not like to ride in your go kart it would go no were.You need a chain and sproket.Not a pully, So next time you want to be as smart as you are. think about what you are saying first. (smart ass).Regards everyone.

-- Tom Lorenz (tom.lorenz@motorola.com), November 05, 2003.

I am currently planning a full-bodied go-kart with a early roadster design to it. I plan on using a early cb750cc engine from an old Honda. Here's the prob: I like the hotrod look with no body panels from the firewall forward; just the frame, engine and radiator. I originally wanted to turn the engine sideways(crankshaft parallel w/ frame rails). I would run a chain from the output crank on the trans. directly to a sprocket right next to it which is connected to the driveshaft. I cant find a differential...maybe from a garden tractor? The axle has to be 1 1/4" O.D to fit the Jr. Dragster slicks found on Jegs.com...Any suggestions?

HAHAH me and my bud are buildin go karts right now... pretty much we decided to say the hell with plans and pretty much fudge it... we started today and the frame is comin out pretty well... all i really got for advice is to make it strong and dont use an old 5 hp lawn mower engine... deff not worth your time and effort to be putting around the yard... were using old 440 ski-doo snowmobile engines taht are putting out around 40 hp... not a 600 but this is gonna tear some ass...

Hey, for all of you people who want to build karts.... We do it all from scratch, but we are also working on starting a business building and selling them. Any questions or interested in buying a kart, let me know. Right now we have; 3 with snowmobile motors all of them go 40 -70 mph and are all built for off road use. We also have a small one with a lawnmower motor(for the little ones)

i need plans or sujestions because im going to drop a 800cc snowmobile engine into a go cart frame ... let me know what you think

-- (benjamin.flood@comcast.net), January 06, 2004.

Our team has bought a full on chassis from Dream Karts International. It only cost us 1300. You may think that we have spent a lot of cash, but when i dropped a 2003 Fireblade engine into it, i needed quality gear, with strength (and i am still going to re-inforce it). I am going to be running roughly 165bhp through the rear wheels for track days and 190bhp (with 25bhp shot of Nitrous) for quarter mile sprints with a six speed sequential box. We are expecting 9/10 second quarter mile and top speed, well, you guess is as good as mine. The spring will tell all. Cant wait for the first top tests. Rock on.

I was looking for a go-kart, must run, for 200 dollars and under. Single seater. I live in Oshawa Ontario and am willing to travel to get the cart. If someone has a cart or just a cart frame that is in good condition and is looking to sell it I am the guy who needs it the most. It is for a Gr. 11 automotive class for my final project. Please dont just not respond! ALSO if you have a better kart in better condition but dont want to seel for so low tell me any ways and we can negoiate a price.

Thanks Mike

-- alex orr (darkcrow@37.com), February 16, 2004.

ya what dustin said works and dont be a dumbass and use a lawn mower engine its useless just go buy one from kartworld.com or somethin

-- Mitch West (donkyface1312@aol.com), February 18, 2004.

Just go to http://www.go-carts-go.com/go-karts-plans.htm this site kicks ass and has a few free go cart plans. PS for all the people wha plann to make a cart out of a lawn mower forget it. It is possible but the belt slips and turns out to be more work than it is worth. A simple Briggs and Stratton Tiller motor (horoazontal shaft) with about 5hp works much better and you can get one for around 100$$$$$. And for all the people who are saying "I only have a 5 or 6 hp motor" you had must realize that a 5 horse has 206cc which is quite a bit considering most dirtbikes have between 50 and 250

-- Rob Hall (Maximum360@hotmail.com), February 22, 2004.

I JUST NEED ANY HOME MADE GO KART PARTS OH AND IF U WANT INFO JUST GO TO _lang=EN&lah=57b0fd7c4ac12ad414c05744372342c8&lat=1077661057&hm___act ion=http%3a%2f%2fhome%2ewol%2eco%2eza%2f%7e20338526%2f and it should geu there but relly used gokart parts any 1 just e-mail me i will pay cash

-- David Lennox (mocho_man20@hotmail.com), February 24, 2004.

How does one say this, but you are all a bunch of twiglets! One does not care for lawn mower engines, or puny little 740cc motorcycle engines. I am presently commisioning a Go Kart, powered by a Rolls Royce Avon MK 203 Turbojet Engine, delivering 10,000 lbs of raw thrust! I will post comments on my success in the not so distant future! Have a nice day!

-- Victor Benson-Raleigh (lord_benson@the.manor.com), March 01, 2004.

You're the stupid one, my husband and I converted a Craftsman 11HP Briggs and Stratton Lawnmower to Go-Kart with EASE! All it takes is a lil creativity...

-- Carrie (carriegirl99@yahoo.com), June 28, 2004.

Yes, yes. One really really must reflect at this point, upon the wise words of our eluquent learned friend, who on tne first of march of this year 2004 shared with us all that pearl of wisdom,

"this whole site is so stupid everyone asks for go cart plans for there 5 horse lawn mower engine like a thousand times but if you are patient assholes you would read it somebody posted it like 5 times"

Let as all now join plans and be as one.


-- A.R.Soles (pugwash@maximumedge.com), August 04, 2004.

If you are building a home made go cart you will need a go kart frame, go-cart frames are the foundation of your go kart, everything else is built around them. There are 2 types of go-carts frames to choose from, unwelded frames either purchased or home made, or purchased welded frames. If you have a mig welder or access to one then you can make your own go kart frames or buy one to weld yourself. For more advice visit Go Carts Guide

As most people do not have a mig welder or access to one i suggest you buy an already welded frame kit and start your project from that. It will give you just as much satisfaction using a go kart frame kit or buying cheap go kart frames and will save you time.

-- rob lear (gocartsg@go-carts-guide.com), December 12, 2004.

I am looking to build a go cart if you could email me the plans for the frame that would be great. Is it a 2 seater? thats what we need and how big of an engine would we need?

-- Drew Bruggeman (drewiscool64@hotmail.com), January 08, 2005.
