I have a extra 15.5 hp ohv Tecumseh engine and a spare transaxle. I also have a 2 seater go kart that the engine needs a clutch, chain, and carb. I wanna put that motor and transaxle under that go-kart. Do yall think its possible.

You'd have to run a clutch, and add a extension to the shift, that's basically all....oh!!!! And a lot of brackets

Indeed that is cold. I think the coldest its been here in the last 25 years it -19c or -2.2f. Cornwall is almost an island and we have the sea on 3 sides so the water keeps the temperature up.
