So your making your own oil sump and splasher ?
Yeah it's not as simple as sealing the leaks and making a bracket so it stands on it's arse.
If it was, there wouldn't be 746254960263758 threads on "is it possible to put a lawnmower engine on a go kart?"
Those vertical shaft opposed twins were plagued with oiling problems as they were. Turn it sideways and run it with no governor, and I don't see this going very well. It might work out for you though. This design was always much better in a horizontal configuration. If you can get the sump and dippers right, this could be a good strong engine. Gotta love a 180° v-twin
It would be cool to run a couple ~12hp downdraft carbs mounted on short runners straight above the intake ports.

been thinking on my v-twin and wonder if on something like this. will the mounting holes hold up to being mounted side ways with the torque. i did find an outlet next to my oil filter for a pressure gauge.
there is a guy on youtube that did a v-twin and used a exhaust pipe elbow to mount his carburetor.
