Need an idea for a motor! Answered

I live on the texas coast in mostly swamp and tourists. In my trials and trades I have came across a 82 450 honda engine. I have several ideas but need more input. So far a paddlewheel boat has the lead. Also have several other lawnmower engines and weedeater motors. The mower beds and bodys really catch the rust here and seem to melt in front of your eyes. hope for some ideas on screaming death machines.

The problem with most lawn mower engines is that the blade, itself, acts as the motor's flywheel. To use the motor for something else, the gas tank would have to be relocated so that the motor can be set on it's side. A flywheel has to be devised and an extended shaft to drive any mechanism.

. Slap that baby in a go-kart and you'd have a "screaming death machine" for sure.
