My mounting plate is all the way down to the chainguard,leaving me with 11 & 1//2 inches for the motor height before it hits the bottom of the top bars.Is there that much differance in the height of these 2 motors. I want to use the plate because I am going to incorporate the brackets for the jackshaft into it.I like the look of the motor sitting low and It seems to me that it would have a bettet center of gravity sitting as low as possible. Does this make any scense to you?
Yes, sure does. The engine is a Greyhound/HF 79cc and is mounted about as low as possible. The cylinder head on the pred and greyhounds sweep back and are not vertical. Kinda squat and long appearing.
worst apocalypse ever
