Hi Sue,

Thanks for the email. Sorry for the slow reply.
Of course you will be able to make a kart which will work. In fact I have 
recently completed a set of kart plans to work with a lawnmower engine. 
Also included are details on getting the parts you need, from skips etc :)


I hope these plans help. While they might not look very cool and snazzy, 
it will work, and you all will have loads of fun building and racing it.

Best of luck,
