Default Re: Making a Harbor Freight engine look vintage/antique?

I see. If you spin the engine around so that the cylinder leans forward, the crank turns the wrong direction.
Maybe you could mount the engine tilted forward as 45 degrees, so that the cylinder is vertical. That could adversely affect the oiling of the engine.
The HF builds I have seen, rack mount and frame mount, have been level with the cylinder tilted rearward.
