Re: A Warning to those looking in getting a Chinese engine kit
Thanks for all of your replys. I should get a tension wrench. I suck at mechanics and I am really discouraged. I didn't touch the thing for a week or so and then the past 2 days I worked on it and I cant figure what the clinking sound is. I'm 95% sure it has to do with the tension on the head studs.
I spent $170 for the kit. $20 for the sprocket being fitted to my rear hub. $80 for another chain/tires/tubes and help getting it together. $20-$30 on other parts and supplies. So in actuality I spent about $250 for the engine and parts directly related to them.
I installed it with the guy I live with.
My bike guy mentioned how most people who buy these things enjoy working on it probably more than riding it relating to a fellow he knows.
Anyways I don't know what to do about the tinkering sound. I wouldn't be so upset if I had another bike to ride. I recently removed the head completely. I wish I new someone locally. Anyone in Northern Colorado in the Fort Collins, Greeley, Loveland area want to help a brother out?
