    Hey everyone, I've been going through the forums for a couple weeks now reading and gaining knowledge. I've Acquired a bike and engine, although I think
    the engine is too big.. Here is what I found about the engine.. http://www.orientpowerchina.com/productshow.asp?ArticleID=89 Came off the 3000psi model.. I stuck it in the frame and it will fit but it sticks out the sides far and the crank will spin the opposite of the way I need it to go. Here's a couple pictures, maybe you guys have some idea's? Thanks!!

    Welcome to the forum. Looks like you have a tiger by the tail. You might want to check out our DIY section for non-kit builds. Plenty of help available there.
    Good luck, ride safe.

    Here are my guidelines for building: predominant riding terrain, read local legal requirements, primary rider's physique and budget. Do your research; stay within these guidelines and you'll have a bike you can enjoy riding.
