ok.....let me get this right....u wanna take a vertical shafted motor & position it in a horitanzal position......

I would say no to that....no can do....cause ur oiler system is located in different positions on each shaft type...& also the mounting base is different on both types engined....


also ....the carb is set up for each specific style too..


u could do one ....but I bet the engine will not run....won't get gas.... & if it did.....prolly will self destruct in just a minute do to lack of oil

I do not know about splash lube engines, but on a Kohler Magnum Twin or an Onan Twin I know you can. But it is ALOT of work, oil pump, intake, etc...

This has been discussed before in this forum, they say it can be done but you need the necessary horizontal components and some tinkering with the vertical block in most cases.
