    Well I am excited, I finally got my hands on a wooden plane, and yes it will be a fuel plane not electric.

    If you look at the markings on the firewall they are already offset to the right…..all you need do is centre the engine mount on those lines.

    Regarding the tank, I would look for another rather than carve up your model. Dubro tanks are very good and tend to be wider and flatter than normal. I have a few of these so measure your cavity (?) and I’ll measure the ones I have.

    Thanks for the reply Ian,

    So you think I would have to not center the Engine? I mean keep the engine center to the firewall hole?

    Yes….ignore where the hole is, its not important, its only for you to feed the fuel lines through. Centre your mount using the lines marked on the firewall, it will give you the correct offset so your cowl lines up correctly.

    Finally got to the flying field to run-in the engine before I connect her to the Tiger moth.

    Chris. Some pictures of the engine installation on my Bolero to help you….. note the position of the blue fuel filter and the throttle hook up.

    View from below showing the exhaust pressurisation line running back to the tank. The two pipes are the fill line (the one with the blanking screw) and the crankcase pressurisation line which both stick out of the cowl.

    Finally the fuel tank installation with the fill and pressurisation lines running into the top and the feed line from the centre. Tank is mounted on a foam pad to reduce foaming of the fuel due to engine vibration. In this model I’ve held it in place using a Velcro strap but you can use foam, elastic bands or build a box to hold it, depends on the layout of the fuselage. Note also the black wire push rod for the throttle….
