I used the stock mounts and changed the flywheel on my non-pull engine so it would work with a box.

What do you mean rear cover has no support for crankshaft?
If you mean that when removing the pullstart mechanism the crank pin extensión where the mechanism engaged now stays free, that is normal, all non pullstart engines operate like that, the crank supports itself on the front and rear bearings.

About new motor mounts I don´t have an answer because i use the ones that came with the kit.

Someone should machine down the stock RTR mounts so they are lower. That would make it accessible to a bump box without going dremel mode on the chassis. Just an idea but this is what I would try first. Knock a little metal off both sides of the motor mounts (top and bottom) and go from there.

Not sure if this is what you're referring to, but hope it helps.
