Default Re: engine sits tilted

I have a few bikes where the engine fit perfectly. The rest were an easy cheap fix.

Never mount on tape or rubber. If anything a very hard rubber works, or I used lead sheet in the past with excellent results.

There is also a cheap, easy way to fill any gap in an improper frame to engine fit- get some two part epoxy putty, the thick-like-clay stuff, and put it in the gap when you mount the engine. Use Saran wrap on both sides, so you can remove it easily later if need be. Mount the engine and tighten it 90% of the way, once the epoxy sets, snug down the hardware.
