 "Cloudster" Construction Project Session #22

Speed 400 Cloudster Project
This afternoon and evening I completed the motor mount. This entailed measuring and cutting the 1/64" plywood motor tube to length, completing the rear mounting ring including trimming the ring's outside and drilling the four 2-56 mounting holes, gluing the rear mounting ring to the motor tube, and adding three of the four side support gussets as shown below.
This is a close up view of the rear mounting ring from the back of the mount.
This picture shows the Speed 400 motor mounted in the motor tube with spinner/adapter attached and the assembly laid on the plans to check the location of the rear face of the spinner. Notice that the top of the rear mounting ring has to be trimmed down later to fit inside of the cowl contour and the fourth support gusset added at the top.....................Tandy.
