    Hello from Austin, TX. I just received a ThatsDax F50 a few days ago and I am planning to install it on a Moon Dog that I picked up at the Salvation Army Store.
    Currently I am in the process of sorting out how to mount the engine to the oversize tube. The engine arrived with slight damage but not bad enough that I cannot live with it.

    Go to an auto store and use a muffler mounting bracket (the correct size for your oversized down tube and lock it down to a very thick piece of metal ( 8 gauge up to 1/4" plate) and tie the two motor mount studs into that plate. Your motor will be rock solid and this will make everything better!

    It all starts with rock solid motor mounts.
