    Next place the engine in the centre of the frame. Adjustment of the angle should be made in a way that the exhaust pipes should be pointing towards the ground. Use the hardware provided in the kit to fix the engine to the frame tubes. Use a socket wrench to tighten loose nuts. Depending on the type of kit you are using, you may be required to drill holes in the frame of the kit using a drill. Consider buying a drill from your local hardware store if you do not have one already. Drill holes are required to mount the motor and if the locations are not marked already, measure the dimensions of the motor and mark the locations using a drill.
