    Post a pic, inspectorcritic. It will be lot easier to help you. If the Tecumseh motor is too big to be street legal in CO, you may be better off spending your money elsewhere.

    You got it 49 but the part by the shaft is missing anf I don't understand how a vertical shaft is going to turn a drive wheel horzontal and the shaft is a 5 inch ,5/16 bolt how is the linkage sit up for a friction propulsion and where can i buy parts and where is there a diagram so know what to order?
    Thanks for any help.

    It's a 2 stroke. It doesn't care if it's a vertical or horizontal shaft. It'll still run.

    Need some pictures of this thing!

    It is a diaphragm carb!

    The most important thing is lubrication. A lot of guys try side mounting a vertical drive lawnmower engine and burn it out quickly because it doesn't lubricate that way. You can do that with some modifications, but it's beyond most people's reach. The carb can be easily turned if it were a float type.
