With the ex hire go karts that we bought the engine mounting seems a whole lot better than anything I have seen before.
Pictured are the alloy clamp bars which bolt to the bottom of the motor. Note how these are scalloped to match the tubes.
Running lengthwise in the kart are two tubes 32 mm diameter on which these sit. Under the tubes is welded a piece of flat bar with a slotted hole. (Make it 2 shorter ones if you wish.) Also pictured
Welded in an appropriate place is a 3/8" nut to allow for a pusher bolt which bears against the clamp bar for chain adjustment.
So the way to adjust the chain is simply back off the 2 bolts which run through the slots, wind up the "pusher" lock that off and retighten.
If you have positioned the two tubes properly, ie parallel and running parallel to the center line, it is really easy.
To take the motor off the kart is 2 bolts and the ancillaries.

Sort of, except that it seems that the adjustment is not done in the same very simple and keeping alignment way. I think that what is shown here is the adaptor for a minibike to allow a TAV to be fitted.. With those slots you could maladjust just as easily as have it perfect every time.
