Default Engine mount work

I know it's not backward but I thought I'd show y'all anyway.
I've been working on my engine mount drawings. I've had to make some careful considerations here as I'll be putting 500lbs and 220HP forward of the firewall where on the standard version 300lb and 100-130HP sits.
All Up I think it's looking pretty good.

Well the mount as drawn is based on a drawing avaliable on the Northwest Aero site for a Ford V6 installation. I used that because it gave me a good idea of the width of the redrive from which to start. Ideally I'd like a beter set of drawings to work from than this and the PSRU installation guide .pdf but I'll work with what I have.
I had to verify that the existing mounting reinforcements for the KR2S would handle the extra forces involved and they do, but I'll look into what I can do to reinforce them anyway. Whether I do or not, that depends on the rest of the structure, but that can 'o' worms is a little further down the track.

Default Engine Mount - CG Products

I received my engine mount for my Conical IO-320 the other day fro CG Proucts, (ie:The CozyGirrrls).

Gotta say, it looks good. There was some question as to whether there would be interference with the fuel pump. To avoid that, Chrissi asked me to take some high resolution orthagonal pictures of my engine and email them to her. She was able to put the pictures into some fancy engineering software, and create a "Virtual" engine with which she fitted "Virtual" tubing around everything. The result: Fits like a glove. (I should copywrite that. )

The Girrrls construct the jig, design, layout, and cut the tubing, and have a certified welder do the sticky stuff.

IMH (layman's)O, Top notch.
