Default Mount spacing

I havent decided on an engine yet for my P-51 Mustang. Its the Top Flite 1/.7th GE kit. I orignially had picked out a DLE20 for it, but after flying it on another plane, the sound just doesnt suit the plane. I am going to go with a 4 stroke instead, but dont have one for it yet. I do have a Magnum 91 thats for my Chipmunk, and was wondering if I could use that to set the mount up on the FW.

How close is the spacing between that engine and something in the 120 range? Is there a large difference in widths? If I were to borrow an OS 120, and find a Magnum or other 120, would they be pretty close in width where it would work? How is it done on an ARF where the mount is already drilled on the FW?

No such information on line for Magnum though, only manuals and parts lists that I can find.

Excellent, I can compare the spacing to the Magnum I have now.
