Thanks for your good comments on the kartbuilding.net website. I hope it 
helps you with your kartbuilding.

Regarding the Engine mounting see:
They are two PDFs of the Engine Mounting on the Racing Kart at:

More information on an Engine Mounting for another kart can be seen on:
This above page breaks the Mounting down into two parts, the "baseplate" 
and the "cradle". The baseplate is welded/bolted to the chassis and the 
cradle can slide forward/backwards in this baseplate. This makes adjust 
the tension on the chain easy.

Regarding transmission, I recommend using a simple chain and sprocket 
drive. Of course it depends on the type of engine you have. Take a look at 
the photo gallery showing lots of details:

Best of luck,
