"Cloudster" Construction Project Session #22
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.
