He has the good stuff " Sprocket adapter ". I read the motor mount is 7/8 offset for the size of the rear tire, but will wait for the engine to arrive before making the mount. just need to figure out the tooth count due to the smaller tire.

That is exactly why I made my own mount. I did not want to drill 3/8" holes through the frame. I made mine so it bolted around the frame with 2 1/2" U clamps.
