OK, chassis put together and engine hung on string.
This looks like the engine will be too low,
I was going to make some mounting plates for either side but this may not be a goer now.
I decided to order a different engine and see where to go....
The second engine has arrived, it's a Tomos one from the late 80s, and an interesting challenge at that.
An afternoon was spent with a basic frame lying on the floor with a straight(ish) edge.
As can be seen the sachs is shorter, but the Tomos flatter,
Hmm. Ground clearence may not be too much of a problem.
I need to make some plates up, but which engine?
Could be the Sachs when the new cylinder head arrives...
