Well 1st thing is your going to need a engine mounting plate, here is 1, but idk if this company is reputable or not.

I was just trying to see how I was possibly going to get this engine to work on my trike. I'm thinking of getting a metal plate welded to the brake hub and then bolt the 44 tooth sprocket to the plate. But I still don't know how I would run the chain from my Comet torque converter because of all the bars underneath where the basket once mounted. Anyone have any ideas? I want to use the things that I have because I bought them already before I even figured everything out. I've attached some pictures.

Do you have room to point your torque convertor to the front, & drop your chain straight down to your chain ring shown below the trike.
