Engine Mount

Kelly and I attached the engine mount.  The engine mount attaches the engine to the fuselage and is also the attachment point for the nose gear.  Attaching the engine mount involves enlarging the 6 holes that attach it to the fuselage–they were 3/16″, but need to be 3/8″.  We enlarged the first one, then bolted on the mount and used it as a guide to drill the rest.  The pre-drilled 3/16″ holes were close to where they needed to be, but not perfect, which is why we needed to use the mount as a guide.  When we were done with the drilling, we deburred the holes, put in the bolts, and tightened the nuts.  Here’s Kelly finishing it up.
