Default Help On Carter 2236 Jackshaft Housing Fix

Now before anyone gets the wrong idea I have done research and know this part is basically impossible to get. Sadly this is my first gokart project and it seems to be a bad place to start but I have it so time to fix it. I have seen a suggestion on using "Pillow Blocks". Is this the best solution and will I have constant issues? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. If pictures would help I can get some that I have found of the jackshaft housing.

I guess My statement wasnt too specific... I meant pics of your setup on the kart....
Im not sure what your asking??

As for use of Pillow blocks, they can be useful. They are kinda finicky to setup, but you need the space to work with them, aswell as make sure your TC spacing is correct... Overall easier than trying to find/make another housing like above, if yours is worn out...

I don't have the engine on it right this moment so I will have to get it set on there. I just know it's quite but further than I see on other karts. Just to note I am completely missing the jackshaft housing but you can see where it mounts.

I have the same problem with the same kart. I've attempted pillow blocks but there is just way to much movement.

I immediately got the wrong idea from the first post, telling me not to get the wrong idea.
Seemed to be missing subject and verb.

Anyhow, BMI seems to have the raw materials, plus a few prefabricated setups, even used parts like this that could be adapted:
