Default Issues with my first installation

Well, first i tried to mount the engine directly but the gear changer was causing it to slant so every time i tried to pedal the chain would get stuck, however i didn't realize that it was the slant of the engine so i removed a chain link and made it VERY tight. The chain then broke and i had to find the small pieces of the master link on the ground. So then i decided to try a different method by raising the engine higher and raise the front mount plate above the frame and drilling a hole through the frame then adding a bolt through the hole however now the chain would get stuck and the engine would start shaking, then the chain would jump off the tire sprocket and get stuck in between the spokes and the chain.

Also i cant accelerate the engine, twisting the handle does nothing, am i twisting hard enough, it only moves about < than a inch. I don't want to break it since i am putting a bit of force.

So all of this has stressed me quiet a bit, please help me out i just want to be able to my bike
