I was hoping I would be able to rotate the engine in
the mount but it didn't work out because the muffler didn't clear the
fuselage side. I had to rotate the mount.
I was going to knock out the original blind nuts, drill out
the holes, plug them with dowels and then fuel proof them.
Instead of doing all that I counter-sunk the holes and threaded flat-head screws into the existing blind nuts. I applied
silicone to fuel proof the wood exposed by the counter-sink.
The fuel line exits didn't need to change but the throttle linkage
location did. I plugged that hole with silicone.
I can't believe
I'm already rebuilding my rebuild and it isn't even rebuilt yet.
