Thanks Tom, The vertical mount would be a challenge in this bike frame to begin with. So I’m still contemplating that idea.#294 If you go vertical, you will have to pull the side cover to drill and tap 1/2"NPT the blank oil filler port.
Curt is right about the need to keep the block from turning. Fortunately there is a bit of casting that can accomplish it.
#293 I dislike universal engine mounts. Better to fabricate a designed of the purpose mount.
There are a bunch of welded in engine mounts in various builds on this and the other forum. Curt for a old fAArt has a link to just about everything. Must be the long winters he endures that give him time to collate all his links. Me?Lol no doubt. I could probably fabricate something similar
I’ve seen some on this website that were welded. I would prefer aluminum but I could go with steel.There are a bunch of welded in engine mounts in various builds on this and the other forum.

I got three 3x5 ring bound note pads pretty well packed. Nothing collated. My secretary quit cuz I wouldn't give her a raise.
Or was that a rise? Fickle they are.
Not sure I can ID your new parts but would Love to see it.Non topic but what the hey. Our Township does garbage collection and some recycling. Very cost effective. I used to pay trash collector company $80 per month. Using Rubicon Township, never more than $8. Usually less.
Local metal junk man keeps a trailer there. He used to hang around his trailer to thwart our recycling his trailer contents.
Dude, once as I rolled away two bicycles I later returned said " You are stealing from me!" Township must have told him beggars cannot be choosers. He quit harassing us.
Today i scored a box of Harley cast offs. The most identifiable was the triple tree handle bar riser. Solid aluminum
Bunch of in the bag S n S parts and wiring kits, SS trim strips. A steel fixture likely for fork leg mod's.
I'll lay it out on the drive for Danny or who ever to ID when I get round tuit.
Still flipping hot, no rain. Spring was cold and no rain. Already have seen places corn plants are past stress, and browning.
I own a lawn and landscaping business. Worked and lived in the big city for 25 years. Started off working in a computer parts warehouse. Got promoted to computer operator & then spent about 13 years as a C++ programmer.What are you doing for a living, that rain holds you back?
We are now in drought mode. High ground corn is dying. Second crop hay is still iffy even on middle ground.
Last three months, less than three inches of rain. Most of my family is Dairy.
Be 80 in Oct. so memory is also so slow now, but there use to be a lot of venders that made mounts, that have disappeared. Wolf is gone, Phantom, and a lot of others that made parts. What I don't understand is CNC you put the metal in and push buttons? Out of stock, program is always there.That sucks Curt! Photobucket was so easy, saving to hard drive was an option, and I did too. Gone, junk.
I'm 70, my cancer challenged wife is 74. I only said what I said because you have links to what us newbie's want links to.
And you do. There is a Brother Hood here. Each according to their means.
Lol Tom, I just got in to raising chickens in the last year. Started out with 10, three roosters. Found a home for the roosters and added 6 more hens from a friend who was dying. 13 hens have been reduced to five. A hawk got one, and the coyotes have gotten real brave around here. I’m armed and the last coyote I saw was back stepping into the woods as I came out of the garage with an ar-15. Right now I owe the coyotes!!!!(After 10 years of living in the country I would never go back. I really enjoy my privacy here. Hunting a few hundred yards away, bonfires as Big I want to build them and outdoor pissing lol.)
Raised amongst dairy farm relatives, actually Farmed out by my parents. When I was 13 my dad's mother broke her hip.
Soon as school was over, they loaded me on a train for LaCrosse,WI where older cousins picked me up and delivered me to grandpa. Spent the whole summer that year cultivating tobacco, milking 8 cows, mowing hay.
Grandpa by the had traded for a WD Allis Chalmers which did not have live PTO. Didn't matter, his mower was a horse drawn vintage machine. levers for sickle bar pitch, foot lever to raise and lower the sickle bar. I rode on it. If ya ever seen Amish mowing hay. Think of me behind a WD. Grand dad blew a head gasket in 1967. I miss him still.
My city raised wife has never gotten used to all together.
Since I sold my partnership in a 36 unit apartment complex in 1992 and bought a house on a acre sandwiched by grain fields and cow pastures.
And then in 2006 to two acres in Rubicon. Only thing different is Mona won't have chickens now.
In Illinois, I raised mixed flocks. Not a good idea, they go about their business but they don't speak the same language. That would be a great Doctoral Thesis.
Last two years flocks were our favorite. Bantam Speckled Sussex.

I sold alot of eggs, and lost my a$$ on bantams. They eat almost as much as a full sized bird, while producing a bantam sized egg. They are Asian with feathered feet. As apposed to the Mediterranean fowl.
We’ve got copperheads here too.Only snakes here a Garter Snakes. Son in NC, yard is crawling with Copper Heads. Ground regularly mowing.
Varmint control around here is .22 only, except the time I rolled a boar coon with a .410 in the driveway.
Giving eggs away you can't eat is a given. The girls don't keep track of their out put. Keep them with clean food and very clean water. You will not fail. Scrubbing and cleaning and repeat. In your summer temps no choice,
Do know what a chicken tractor is? Google.

Llamas work too I hear, but like camel's, eye to eye they will spit.
