Is the lawnmower engine vertical or horizontal shaft? it's easy with a horizontal engine, but vertical, i have no clue, sorry.

Unfortunately most lawn mower engines are vertical shaft whether from a riding or push mower. They make it more difficult since you have to convert the vertical rotation of the engines shaft to the horizontal rotation of the axel. Finding a horizontal engine (one with the shaft out the side) will make things much easier.
