hello all i am new to the forums, i would like to first say hi to everyone.

i had originally purchased a next avalon bicycle from walmart to install the engine kit on. but i ended up returning the bike because the engine would fit but i couldn't get the carburetor to go on. Then i find this forum and see some pictures of bike with carburetors adapted using hoses and other methods. So my question is is there a particular way the carb needs to be mounted could i cut the manifold and attach the carb using flexible tubing off to the side, and have it still run properly?
