Upon removing the engine with engine mount and firewall, I discovered I had not epoxied the engine mount to the firewall. Only thing holding it together was 2 drywall screws. Amazing as this engine mount and firewall has had a few flights logged. The engine was powerful enough to bend the screws.

Easy fix. Drill out the screw holes and glue in hardwood dowels. Dado the firewall for the engine mount. GLUE THE MOUNT and drill and add the screws. It should work.
