Default Re: RALEIGH GRUV anyone put a china engine on?

If Joe says it's going to be tight it will be. What I would do is loose the stock studs and replace them with good ol' USA steel. I use Hex bolts and steel plate
Using a vice bend the steel to the angle of the motor then to the frame. Drill the steel to match the engine holes. Use Muffler clamps to secure to the frame. I use stainless. I keep a constant check on my bike everytime I ride it. Those stock studs seem to break.
I have NOT had that happen. Every motor I mount gets new studs before it touches the frame.
