Don't try to move the engine over. Instead, stack some washers between the wheel hub and the sprocket to space the sprocket out farther. That way the clutch can be closer to the engine.

GPS used to have 150cc gas tanks with fuel guages in the cap, but I just checked, and they're sold out. :(
If it were me, I would just check the fuel level every once in a while. Fuel guages will be...

Why do you want a motorcycle carb on a vertical engine?? Racing lawn mower?
Either way you will need to rip out the governor since the old carb is going bye-bye.

I find it easier to take apart/reassemble the chain with the clutch sprocket outboard. Plus I think it just looks aesthetically "right". Just my opinion.
Of course, if you decide to run it inboard...

I find it kind of interesting how the electric karts at K1 Speed can really WAIL! They are LOUD! They are fast, though. Sometimes I wonder what their battery chemistry is, given that they get run...

Ehh, 1 1/2" is not a big deal.
As mentioned above the seat is adjustable, I forgot that at first.
The message is the same: It's small!

That's kind of the problem...
Practically no one makes 1 1/8" clutches, so it's down to hyper expensive torque converters, a snap-yer-neck electric clutch, or putting the clutch on a jackshaft.

Dang, I can't imagine why that thing would still be stuck. Keep applying PB Blaster into that key slot, and keep on with the heat and puller. That's all I can say.

Well then, if it's AC, you have two choices.
1. - Have a ridiculously long extension cable trailing you

As far as why it only lifts the left, I dunno. Probably is set up for an oval.

NonononoNONONONO! NO!
Electric motors generate MAXIMUM torque right off the bat! So no, a clutch will not make an electric kart wheelie.
And anyway, you'd lose at least 1800 RPM of power when you...

The fact that it will run, then you can kill it, then it won't start is VERY odd. It sounds like some kind of issue with spark.

I think you have a set screw somewhere that you overlooked. Look for an allen head set screw. There may be more than one.
