Default RE: fuel tank position

First , I assume you are talking about a nitro engine , correct ? If yes , then I would suggest , since you have not done the mount yet , it make the fuel tank as even as possible with the motor. If you choose to mount the fuel tank lower than the engine , you should be prepared and ready , to possible use a pump , to pump the fuel up rather than depend on the back-pressure created in the exhaust , which might not be enough to get the fuel up to the engine . If you are talking about a gas engine ( still 2 stroke , but the ones like on a weedeater ) , then no , the height is not going to be a problem.
Hope this helped and welcome to the board .
