Default Good Ground Run, No Takeoff

Today was a beautiful day. Not a cloud in the sky. Temp 80*, humidity 37%, light breeze. So I cut my runway and got my airplane ready to fly. Preflight OK, engine started running good. Pointed airplane down the runway, held up elevator, tail dragger, added power all good. Ground run straight reduced the up elevator. Airplane did not seem to be gaining airspeed. Kept on the ground to end of runway. Added up elevator for takeoff and plane just stayed on ground, kicked up some dirt and came to a stop still on its gear. I was not sure what happened until I saw the engine and engine mount. The engine was pointing down.
