    First off welcome to the group. Glad your here.

    Is it going to be a 4 stroke or 2 stroke? because 4 stroke needs to stay horizontal (level) or the oil will
    flood through the crank/piston into the carb. The 2 stroke is more forgiving. The furthest angle I have
    ever had a bicycle 2 stroke tilted and still ran good is at the 10:00 or 2:00 position (ruffly)
    Then there's my 2 stroke chainsaw which runs great at 360 deg.

    Other member may have gone more than that. I cant speak for them. Hopefully someone else will chime in.
