Step 1: Mounting the Peg Onto the Engine
Well ok the first thing u want to do is jam the flywheel with a screw driver this allows you to work without the engine spinning freely. Well for my friction shaft i used a normal bicycle peg i would recommend using a 3 inch peg because i used a 4 and that was way too long. The engine i was using has a 5/16 keyed shaft. This was extremely difficult to work with considering it was only 1 inch long and u have 2 fit alot of stuff on it. The pattern i used to lock every thing in place was in this order a skateboard bearing, bike peg, lock washer, nut. This pattern seemed to work very well.
Step 2: Mounting the Engine on the Bike
well there are thousands of ways of doing this but the approach i took was pipe clamps and nuts and bolts. First of all because i dont have a welder yet and i dont want to ruin my bike. Well since backpack leaf blowers have anti-vibrational spring i used those with a nut and bolt and those thing that go around a handle bar that u have ur bike reflector on except metal. on other areas i just used pipe clamps because i can adjust those easily. For the friction to be applyed to the tire with force i used a very small spring on the mount closest to the shaft for the most leverage. Do remember that this bike cannot idle so you must start it and then run with it and jump on :) Spacecadet505 does not take any responsibility in injury by the machine or human error or anything else:)
