    Grubee GT5 66cc Slat Head motor.

    Any reason I can't rotate the head 180 degrees so the plug slants forward and not backwards?

    I don't think I'll need it on this build other than for aesthetics, I have plenty of room, but I would like to know if that would be a problem.
    While I'm asking, what is the head nuts torque too.

    This will be my Ultimate Build.
    2009 Giant Suede GX 3-speed with a Jackshaft shifting kit.
    Front shocks, seat shock, quality road tires, heavy duty everything.
    It should be one helluva ride ;-}
