I posted this same answer to another question. But they make and sell go karts for small children that have horizontal engines on them I couldn't see how it was done by my guess would be running a belt face clutch, a belt pulley on a open posi traction rearend(the whole axle turns, not just a shaft inside a tube). That way the belt can run twisted so to speak. Just look at an old yazoo mower. It has a vertical engine on it and the belt looks almost like a figure eight to run the horizontal blade. But it works( I know I have and old Yazoo in my back yard.) Hope this helps some

IT'S SIMPLE AND IT'S LEGAL!!!!!!! I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it a little while back, I was browsing through news groups just as you are right now and came across a article similar to this saying that you could make thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of $6. 00!! So, I thought yeah right. This must be a scam, but like most of us, I as curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you send one dollar to each of the six names and addresses stated in the article. You then delete the first address and change the numbers. ( 2 becomes 1, 3 becomes 2, etc.) place your own name and address on the bottom of the list at number 6 and post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. (there are thousands) No catch that was it. Therefore, after talking to a few people and thinking it over I decided to try it. What do I have to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00 right? Then I invested the measly six dollars. WELL GUESS WHAT!!! Within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail!!! I was shocked. I thought it was going to stop but it just kept coming. In my first week, I made $25.00. By the end of the second week, I had $900.00. In the end of the third week, I made $5,000.00!!! It's still growing right now. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over $38,000.00! Moreover, it's still coming in rapidly. This is certainly worth $6.00 and 6 stamps. I have spent more than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most importantly why it works...Also make sure that you print a copy of this article NOW so you can get the information off of it as you need it. I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you will start making more money than you possibly thought just by doing something so easy!! SUGGESTION: READ THIS ENTIRE MESSAGE CAREFULLY (Print it out or down load it) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in! It's easy. It's legal. And your investment is only $6.00 (plus postage) IMPORTANT: This is not a rip off; it is not indecent; it is not illegal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!!!!! If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive extraordinary dividends. PLEASE NOTE: please follow these directions exactly and $50,000 or more can be yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions. You will now become a part of the mail order business. In this business, your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in the business of developing a mailing list. Many large corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality list. However, the money made from the mailing list is secondary to the income, which is made from people like you and me asking to be included to that list. Here are the four steps to success: STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper write the following on each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 us 1dollar bills and place ONE inside EACH of the six pieces of paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope to prevent thievery. Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them. MAKE SURE THERE ARE ENOUGH STAMPS ON YOUR ENVELOPES. You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating the above phrase your name and address and a $1.00 bill. What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it! Like most of us, I was a little skeptical and a little worried about the legal aspects of it all. So, I checked it out with the U.S. Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed legal!!!!! Mail the six envelopes to the following addresses. One to each address #1) B.M.Nsubuga 4380 Main St. Amherst,NY.14226 #2) Matt Snodgrass 2115 S.Osage Bartlesville,Ok.74003 #3) Mike Gordon 204 South Maple St.Linchester,KY.40391 #4) Jeff Waldrop 39-A Lucy Rd. Laurel,MS.39443 #5) Chris McCreary ,21 Batchelor tr. Edgewood N.M. 87015 #6)Alex Pagel 3720 High Gables West Cumming GA 30041 STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc.. .) and add YOUR name as number 6 on the list. STEP 3: Change anything you need to but try to keep this article as original as possible. Now post your amended article to at least 200 news groups. ( I think there are 24,000 groups) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you post , the more money you make!** EVERYBODY AROUND THE WORLD CAN DO THIS BUT REMEMBER TO PUT ENOUGH STAMPS ON YOUR ENVELOPES!!!!**

To attach a horizontal engine to its wheels, purchase the following items: 1)From the web site (http://www.psep.biz/store/go_cart_max- torque_clutches.htm) measure and purchase a clutch that matces your drive shaft size. 2)Now purchase a drive chain that will fit the teeth number (10 or 12) of the sprocket that is on your clutch. 3)On your 1" or whatever wheel shaft, you will need a rotery plate sprocket assembally that will fit not only your shaft size, but make sure the sprocket teeth match the chain teeth number (10 or 12). All of the above parts can be found on that website mentioned. As for a engine 9.0HP and greater, you will need to use a torque converter (about $150.00+)
