MMK, I am sure this has been answered a lot, but if I were you (which I have done this for a friend) I wouldn't use a lawn mower engine. Youll never find a Go-Ped over ~2HP. At fully running speed (if you are fast and weigh a lot) you'll never put out more than 1.2 HP or so. You should use a 2.2HP weed wacker engine that burns oil. Use the red weed wachers that burn oil because 9 times out of 10 its doing it out the carb and all you have to do is reseal/rebuild/replace the carborator which is very easy.

I used a 5hp B&S from a go-cart on a modified razor scooter. Had it up to 60 but backed off. It has ALOT more to go.
