make sure you make room for the intake/carb combo.Ok, here we go. First allow me to express my gratitude for each of your thoughts. Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellers they are established.
Now then, I spent a little time in the CAD lab. Here is what I’m thinking. The first pic- the engine is resting, rather precariously, on two hunks of aluminum tube. Just over one inch square tube- this puts the plate just below the bottom bracket (that’s what that is right?) thinking I don’t want over heat and possibly warp that. Third shot, basically the space that will be filled- two pieces of 1/8 on either side of the seat tube across that distance should do nicely. I have plans fo that space I shall discuss next slide. last photo is cad madel mock-up of the engine- there is some, not much, room to move forward and aft.
most of those have a michanical fuel pump, and the stock carb with filter sticks out around 4-6" (depending if its the pressure washer model or the regular one)
for the cvt, the countershaft sticks out behind as weel, so keep that in mind.
id use the cvt, its just eaiser to use, plus you dont need a jackshaft. (becuase a cvt is one)
the build looks great right now! cant wait untill the finished product!
