Default Making a Harbor Freight engine look vintage/antique?

I’m sure most are familiar with Harbor Freight’s affordable 2.5 & 6.5hp engines, but I’m curious if anyone has ever “antiqued” one?

My biggest question would be “Can you rotate the engine so the cylinder is vertical without effecting performance or durability?

I realize you would have to make a new intake manifold to keep the crab level.

BTW: I tried searching and didn’t find anything, but admittedly I’m not skilled with the feature.

Looking forward to seeing your mod's or hearing your ideas!
