Is there any possibility of the float being stuck open in the carb? Simplest reason I can think of why fuel spits out of it. If you can post a few pics of the linkage to the carb maybe we can spot...

The 301 and 420 predator engines are directly comparable to a gx270 and a gx390, both of which are big block engines, if you fit the 301, you could fit the 420. The 670cc is an entirely different...

There should be some offset to the wheels, if the "axle" is long enough add maybe an inch of spacer, could use washers, and make sure you can get the nut back on. Just because the rim is 5" wide...

Unless they are hex hubs to match the axle those can both be ordered on Amazon, see if they have round centers on the sprockets themselves.

Might try a very slight zigzag bend in it, just enough to unbind it on the frame. I think all the linkages on mine have a bend or two in them but it's also a different type of brake. If it proves...

Mine all had band style brakes when I got them, so just throwing this idea out, can the caliper be flipped over and mounted? Looks backward somehow to me, and it might give you some slack in the...
