Vertical Engine Drive
Do you have a riding lawn mower sitting in the back yard?
Have you ever said to yourself: I am going to make a go kart out of that someday!
But when you dive into the whole go kart idea you discover that the vertical engine layout is a bit more complicated than you wanted it to be.
In order to actually get the engine to work on a go kart you have to do at least three different things:
1. Flip the engine on its side
2. Try to find an expensive right angle gear box
3. Try to manipulate the heavy transmission to work on a go kart
4. Try to belt drive it some how.
There are other options, such as drive shafts, chain drives, and such but they are all complex and expensive.
So what do you do? You let the lawn mower sit, until you come up with some other idea.
My question is why wait?
There are only so many days left in the summer and then winter comes, what are we waiting for? It will only be a matter of time before it gets tossed in the junk pile any way.
What you need is a bolt on solution. A system where all you do is bolt on your engine and hook up the chain to the clutch. Just like on a real gokart.
This is no gimmick, no cheap fix, what we have here is a bolt on solution, that applies to many different vertical engines that exist out there.
Lets go through the steps again:
1. Unbolt your engine from your riding lawn mower
2. Attach the associated drive connections to the vertical engine shaft
3. Mount the vertical drive unit into the go kart
4. Bolt the engine into the vertical drive unit
5. Attach the clutch to the output shaft
6. Hook up the chain to the go kart drive system
7. Start engine
8. Drive go kart.
Wow, that was actually not that hard. Simply unbolt and re-bolt.
What we are offering is a simple bolt on solution, no thinking required on your end. Just bolt and go.
With the costs of Horizontal engines being so high today, why not use that vertical engine sitting on the lawnmower in the back yard.
People actually throw those style engines out all the time, because they are so difficult to use.
Not any more!
Horizontal engines are really hard to come by, and when you do get your hands on them they are beat up, or really expensive, like 400 to 500 bucks. Especially for any thing over 5 hp.
Just think, all you have to do is unbolt that good running engine and bolt her right onto the go kart. There is a little set up for mounting the vertical engine drive unit, but other than that it just bolts right on.
Instead of spending 500 bucks on a horizontal engine, you can spend a fraction of that and get a vertical engine drive unit and save hundreds of dollars.
The nice thing about his vertical engine drives system is that it uses common components and is easy to maintenance. Periodic maintenance is a breeze with this unit, all the vitals are within reach. No fumbling under to get at things.
Also, with the vertical engine drive unit, you are not flipping the engine on its side, using some finicky transmission, or right angle gear box. You are running the engine the way it was intended to be run, vertical.
No special carburetors, special oiling systems, special clutches. You don’t have to worry about your engine overheating, and you don’t have to go out and buy some carburetor that might not even work for your engine.
Just bolt and go.
If you are new at go karting and really don’t have the proper mechanical intuition to trouble shoot finicky systems, consider this vertical engine drive system.
It has a full money back guarantee. If it doesn’t work the way you wanted it too, just send it back, and we will give you a full refund.
This vertical engine drives system was designed by and engineer, and put through a full gammit of research and development tests.
This is not slouch of a product. This was designed by go karters, for go karters. With the end user in mind it has been designed to bolt right into your go kart.
Go Karts vary in their designs, but for the most part this vertical engine drives system is easily integrated into most go karts.
Beats spending hundreds of dollars on horizontal engine, and not really getting the power you wanted any way.
Remember all it takes is the engine off of your lawnmower, the vertical engine drives system and a go kart to be driving it today.
