Hi Ty,

Gearboxes and right-angle gears are difficult to find. When I did come
across them - they were very heavy.

You have a few options for using a Lawnmower Engine:

1. Using a V-belt
See: http://kartbuilding.net/Lawnmower_Powered_Wooden_Go-Kart_Plans/

2. Getting a gearbox or rear axle differential from a ride-on (tractor)
See: http://kartbuilding.net/drive/Gearbox.htm and

Best of luck,
