Piston facing rear pros n cons
« on: July 14, 2019, 06:10:57 AM »
What are the pros n cons of the head towards the back? If i turn the engine around i would have more room for the starring going over the top and then put the battery up front.

You will,be much better off with engine facing forward,assuming you have a vertical engine  you will flood the#2 cylinder with oil and over time you will have issues
