I need some plans of a go kart powered by a tractor engine

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Can somebody tell me how to build a go kart with a 12.5 H.P. Briggs and Stratton engine. I also needs some tips on the layout and setup of a transmission system, steering system, clutch and some kind of braking system.

Thank you this will be greatly appreciated
