    It all depends on how well you have trained your wife, I trained my wife over 2 decades ago to always put a tool back where she got it as soon as she was done with it or face the wrath, which meant drop what she was doing and go buy me new one right now! Hehehe ;-}

    My Sister likes Tools as a gift, I don't. Unless it is a specific tool I asked for don't buy tools for me.

    Sorry but I don't see my wife, or any woman, as a person that requires "training". I have a lot more respect for her and a screwdriver is a simple tool that I can afford to replace very easily. I see my wife as a precious individual who wouldn't be replacable.

    ok i figured out i will need the dust cover for hub so that everything mounts right as far as sprocket and rag(btw only the inner rag joint was used) There was no room to use the outer rag joint.

    Now i am having serious trouble with my u bolt engine mounts. If any ideas of how to fix this please share

    As you can see it came with an adaptor which is wider for bigger/wider frames. However the engine double ended/threaded bolts are in the way quite a bit so i can only mount engine at a slant which im not sure is very safe...?

    that's a good thing since the sprocket will jerk just a bit forward and backward as the engine fires - touching those spokes will rub thru them after a while

    use the rubbers and you'll get a nice, smooth cush-drive effect back there

    all bolts should be centered thru the nine small triangles formed by the spokes

    with all nine bolts in, first tighten just the three that are in the centers of the three mounting plates and get the up/down to be centered, once there, you can pull in the wobble with the bolts

    tip: when doing up/down, if you put an old drill bit between 2 sprocket teeth so it sticks up a bit higher than the tooth tips, you can then smack it with a hammer to push it into place

    I find about 5 links of chain set in the sprocket works a bit better for 'tapping down' the vertical adjustment as it may take a couple of turn spots but good tip, you never want to pound on a sprocket tooth directly.

    As for 'training' a wife I should have said something like learning 'marriage compromise', that is is simply learning what is important to the other and respecting it but 'training the wife' just sounded much funnier ;-}

    Okay I got the chain situated, next problem is very confusing and aggravating . My brother went and turned the screw on the speed carb all the way to the right. The motorized bicycle was starting to get going(sluggish,and not yet idling)when going down hills. The engine would stay running a bit and then die when the bike came to a stop. Now thanks to my kid brother the motorized bicycle doesn't stay running how it was, it does not idle what so ever. All wires are intact and engine is turning(I def can hear it)but I still cant get the damn thing runnin(thanks lil brother. Also what is the best setting for the needle in carb? Is there a nominal setting for the clutch cable? I have it set like this: I push the clutch arm on eng. to the right ,to where I start to feel it cant go any further without pushing,then I clamp the cable down. So I wish I could get the screw on carb back to factory settings......

    That screw on the carb you speak of is only an idle adjustment, it will have nothing to do with whether or not the engine will run or how it runs, all it determines is if the round slide in carb is lifter enough for it to idle when the twist throttle is released.

    if the engine will not run, you have another issue which could be carb problem but will not be an issue with the idle screw.

    I set the needle clip second groove from the top on mine and that seems to be a good spot and will for sure allow the engine to run if all else is right.

    If you could post some pics of what you have so we can see the engine up farely close and the carb and the wiring, it's possible that someone here may be able to spot a possible issue.
