Default Re: Have engine-need bike

I guess I'm confused now. I thought your kit came with a wide 3 piece crank. All of the 4 stroke kits I've seen came with the wide crank as part of the kit. I've seen some kits with 1 piece cranks and some with 3 piece. Do you mean your kit just has the crank arms and not the square shaft spindle part? If so here is a link to a conversion kit that includes that part.

Most (practically all) of the bikes I looked at have the one piece cranks on them and that renders the three piece crank set that came with the kit useless. I know my terminology is not the best, and I'm probably not explaining myself in the most accurate way as well.
At any rate, I need the square shaft type bike to bolt my crank set onto.
The Ashtabula type one piece crank will not work for my 4 stroke engine.

You hit the nail on the head. My kit does not contain the square bottom bracket shaft.
The kits supplies the two cranks and the sprocket for a square shaft. The cruisers I've seen have the one piece crank/bottom assembly, which I cannot use.
The site you supplied me will certainly help me though.
