    I stripped out my backside motor mount and have drilled out out and recapped it twice and it stripped again, I tried jb welding the bolts in and the jb weld is coming out. I have everything I need but I need a new motor. Is there anywhere I can buy just the motor? I have found a build your own one but I don't know enough about engines to build one. Can someone post a link for a pre-built engine?

    I've had good luck shortening head studs & threading them all the way down & into the rear mount holes - be sure they'll fit past the seat post tho as some frames are a bit wider.

    I do this after a failure back there because that metal on the motor has often been hammered pretty badly and is now too weak for normal sized studs.
