Default Re: Motor Rear Mount Thruster Fixie Progress

xeta, i had my engine almost exactly like you have yours.
i did it for the same reason. everybody said to keep it level.
i had so many problems till i got rid of all that & put it on the bike the way it was designed.
my carb is tilted but i have no issues.
what i did was take hours & hours to get both chains & a good tension.
also i cut one of the aluminium blocks in half w/a dremel to get the distance i needed.

if you take the time to get both chains tensioned w/o an idler pulley, & you also get a good chain & mount the engine mounted securely, you will not have half the problems most people have @ first.
