nice engine, but does it bother anyone else as much as it bothers me that it's running backwards? i know it functions the same but it looks so strange!

Cross head engine can run both directions. Makes for good conversation at the shows. If you look close the spark plug wire is not on it also. Runs nice on hot tube and both directions.

yes, this is true, but it sure looks weird. and i can see it putting an upward pressure on the cross head rather than downward, which might stress the upper guides? don't know if they were designed to be run like that..?
