So I was toying with the idea of taking a 5.5 HP (173cc) OHV Vertical Shaft predator Gas Engine and putting it on a lawn mule. What do you guys think? Anyone have any experience with this? I remember I had a racing mower with a 6.5 vertical engine years ago that powered me around. This mower would be for just stock speeds. It had a 10hp in it.

It would work, depends on your pulley ratio's.  I have a mower with a 6.5hp pressure sprayer engine on it and it does fine!  It still has original pulley sizes.
