Unhappy Lady In Need of Advice

Hi Friends!

I am in a very difficult situation. My boyfriend and I decided to try and sell motor bikes, maybe one or two a month for some extra spending cash. We ordered an engine from China and he put it together. Everyone seems to love it. My problem is I can't seem to get my boyfriend to want to research or ask questions or take any part in learning what it takes to keep these engines running. I guess I am an old school gal. I like to research and learn all I can about a product. My boyfriend on the other hand is still relying on the methods he used to build go-carts from when he was 8 years old. He is now 44!!! I guess with him being an auto mechanic for almost 25 years has something to do with it also. I just can't get him to want to learn anything until something goes wrong. My question is, should I leave him alone and let him do his thing? I really want to sell these bikes but I don't want anything to go wrong or put anyone in danger. I have been thinking of hiring a semi retired person or student to put the engines together for me but I don't want to cause any problems within our relationship. Oh what is a girl to do??? Am I over reacting? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I hope I did not offend anyone by asking this question, but I am stomped!

Thanks in Advance
