Post Briggs & Stratton Motors

Ok, I got really tired with screwing with my FE290 motor and worring about it exploding. I just decided to go ahead and get a Briggs motor. This guy is selling a 6.5HP OHV Briggs & Stratton motor, he said he hit around 30MPH.

Its off a Go Cart. Would this work? Here are some pictures?

< JUNK, NM FOUND ME A HP V-TWIN

I'm looking for a Briggs motor now, I was stupid that I didn't get one that was listed for $ 200.00, same ones you get from Carts Parts PLus. ANy Ideas?

the mph depends on how you gear your cart but 6.5 is small

Which one is better out of these two? I was thinking to get a Briggs & Stratton V-Twin 18HP Vanguard, but my local Briggs reseller told me that the Honda GX670 V-Twin is better in power and quality.

$ 150.00, heres the problem:

"This is a used 16hp briggs engine that needs to be rebuilt. It turns over but has low compression and smokes badly." From Buyer:

So, NoNo what could be done here or anyone. Thanks

Where can I get performance parts for the Briggs & Stratton 16HP V-Twin Motor? I know CartPartsPlus only does performance parts for the 18HP. Where
can I get the parts...

I just bought it today like 2 hours ago, and yea its nice. I just need to clean it, take it apart to see whats the problem, and buy some parts for it. Along with some performance parts. The owner actaully had a 2000 Club Car DS with the same motor, and it sounded sick. It was fast too, he said the average he hit on the CC was 29MPH just stock. I wish I could have taken pictures of it, but oh well.
