    Hello everyone! :grin5:
    I've run into a little snag with my first build.
    I'm using an old Tecumseh 3.5HP four-stroke that I stripped from a well-antiquated snowblower, and assuming I can weld straight, I can work with the clutch and everything related to the engine itself.

    But now, my actual question.
    Is there a jackshaft kit that I could modify, or even fabricate, to be able to use this hulking mass of engine with it mounted above my rear tire?

    Ebay is your friend.

    The vendors have go-kart jackshafts, sprockets, pulleys, chains, etc. that'd work for you.
