Engine mount

A fellow plane builder welded together the additional engine mount brackets that will be attached to fuselage longerons if I decide to use Viking 130 engine.

The idea is taken from Viking video about 130 installation on RV-12


Viking uses AN bolts to attach the brackets to the longerons. I will use 5 cherrymax rivets on each brackets.

For now I have just drilled the rivet holes and the engine mount attach holes. The brackets will be installed later when I get the engine

Spent 2 hours
