Engine Bolted On, Cowling On

Sometimes on your project you work and work and work, and not much seems to happen.  Other times, like last night, you work a bit and BANG!  Big leap forward.

We started the night with the motor mount bolted on the firewall.  Our Lord mounts for the engine arrived from Aircraft Spruce so we had what we needed to hang the engine.IMG_8799

The great part about a group build is you don’t need an engine hoist, just muscle it into place. IMG_8836 IMG_8819
