The Series 20 McCoy 60 engine that I ordered from Woody Bartelt was just delivered in today's mail. I could not be more pleased with the engine shown below. Its serial number is B37.

I have been trying to come up an integrated arrangement for the plywood firewall, engine mount, fuel tank, and two wheel fixed landing gear installation. Once I get my arms around this problem, I can then proceed on with the SP project.
