Default Re: Backward engine.

Like I was saying the more I thought about it the dumber it sounded. But my thought was this: I am making a long wheel base recumbent, I was thinking of turning the engine around and running the chain forward that hooked to a jack shaft that would be integrated with the front cranks then back to the drive sprocket so that the cranks and the engine hit the drive sprocket on the same drive chain so I could shift, as you can tell from my description is convoluted and overly complicated and like I said it got dumber and dumber the more I thought about it.
