Old gen fits, its a low horsepower engine :)

they seem to get installed in some cheap junk, but the warranty on the engine is often 5 times longer than the rest of the gokart/compressor/cheese grater.

Funny this post should appear. Yesterday, my daughter called and asked me, "Can you hear that motor? It's a Subaru." I question marked... HUH???
(Shocked that she used the proper name, she always refers to my cars as Gooberus... geesh... no respect!)

So the story goes, she was tilling her large garden with her Mantis tiller and a neighbor came by and said, "Using THAT thing's like rowing upstream with a teaspoon." He shook his head, laughed, walked away and came back with a Subaru Robin tiller. She said running it was like trying to hold back a horse. (She's only 5'2"). A new believer maybe?

I Would not hesitate to do this if I had the extra money. I have access to a mig and oxycetalene torch.. The fiberglass stuff I don't mess with though. I would make mine a "brat" go cart!

I've seen them in some cheap junk too but I've also seen them on some high end stuff. Snapper uses them for their top of the line comercial walk-behind mowers which sells for about $300-$400 more then the same mower with a brigs.

Me too! I wonder if one would fit in the back of a brat? I also wonder what the going rate for a Fuji Rabbit scooter is.....
