Nathan113... I have often wondered how to use the common lawn mower engine for something like you are trying to do. One thing that I thought of is how Honda has a shaft drive on some of their motorcycles. I come from a farming background and there are alot of farm machinery parts that use gears to transfer power 90 degrees from one shaft to the next. Combines and planters both have them also balers, etc. They use beveled gears usually to do this, and have some pretty good bearings that they mount them with. I'll think about this some more and post again if i can come up with more. I admire your determination. Keep thinking outside the box.
