Remember that a lawn tractor trans doesn't have syncros. You aren't going to be able to run it through the gears.

Put an early Yamaha golf-cart engine in it. They get forward and reverse by running the engine both directions. Similar to the newer snowmobiles. I have one of these golf-carts and it works pretty slick. The grand-kids drive it without any problems. They are the model G1.
