I dont have any SolidWorks models of kart engines myself. I suggest you go 
to: www.3dcontentcentral.com and search for an engine there. I had a quick 
look and there are some general engines there, however Im not sure how 
much detail there is.

As for general information regarding horse power, cc and number of 
cylinders on a kart engine, I suggest you have a read of:

Typically racing kart engines are two-stroke, single cylinder, 100cc with 
a very high Kilowatt/Horsepower rating. These engines can operate at 
speeds of 20,000rpm!

For engines used on karts in karting arenas, such as:
these tend to be typically single cylinder, four-stroke, 160cc with 5hp 
with between 3500 and 5000rpm.

If you have any specific questions, just email me.

Best of Luck,
