Once I had the motor mounted I wanted to see it slightly mocked up, so I put the tank on and…THE MOTOR IS IN THE WAY! UGH! The tank sat about 6″ off the frame, at about a 45 degree angle up, being pushed away by the tall engine. I totally didn’t even think about that as an issue! Stupid…So I did this.
I’m not proud of it! But I think I have a plan. You’ll see tomorrow. As for now, here is the tank sitting on it now all cut up underneath.
Very compact! Tomorrow’s goals = fix gas tank, and tear down the motor!
