Engine installed 4 June

Managed to borrow a nice chunky engine hoist (thank you Mike Fleming .. a star  !!) .. spent careful time placing heavy duty strops under the engine in the crate so that no key part would be crushed or bent as the lift took the strain. Three of us (Will, Keith and I) managed to get the engine swung into position – eventually remembering the lower rubbers have a metal spacer washer on first !

Engine in

Fits onto the TLAC supplied cradle very neatly.

I can’t quite locate the stainless exhaust onto the stubs and dont want to push and pull the exhaust outlets without skill associated with that sort of day job !  Hopefully I have a friend at Channel Island Aero Services that will cast his expert eye over this.

Have temporary full length thread bolts for now but Paul at TLAC is sourcing proper engine bolts with thread only as the bolt leaves the male/female bungs and facing mounting washer.
