Drifter engine mount


Recommended Posts

Any chance one of you Drifter drivers could post a close up photo of the top engine mount to to top tube attachment please. I'm doing some check fitting of parts after totally rebuilding the fuselage. I noticed a lot of tension between the aft A-frame and the engine mount on disassembly, and I think that it may have been incorrectly fitted when it was converted from A503 to A582 years ago.

 

Thanks

Couple of photo's that may help coming below... BUT call Kiwi...

 

There IS normally a bit of tension in the system .. front and rear a-frames. More when the engine is on.

Thankyou, exactly what I wanted to see, apparently it was assembled correctly and is supposed to be under tension.
