What Snopro said...:)

I figured as much, I had a similar experience long ago after doing an axle flip on the front of my 55 pickup to lower it and the drag link was angled up severely. To add to the folly, I test drove it...

I think the engine is not backwards, notice the pushrods are on the right side like a Harley or Indian. Since their trannys are separate from the engine, they probably just mounted it in front, so...
