Well, whatever engine you can get your hands on first :-)
Most engines can be adpated to power a go-kart. Keep away from lawnmower
engines with vertical drive shafts as they are difficult to adapt.
If you want to keep it simple, look for a "general purpose engine" ( see:
) I then suggest you look to get a "centrifugal clutch" which will allow
you to keep the engine running while you start and stop the kart. See:
Best of luck,
