Default U-Can-Do 3D/"#36 holes"

I'm about to start assembling my U-Can-Do 3D (Great Planes), and I'm presently studying the manual. Prior to mounting the engine, I'm told, you should "drill #36 holes" through the engine mount. As I haven't got the faintest idea what "#36 holes" are, I wonder if somebody could enlighten me on the subject. Thanks!

I believe they are talking about a standard hole size.

check out this link:

You will see that #36 equates to .1065. Unless I thought that 7/64 inch (.1094) would be close enough, I'd head for the "Big Tool Store" (substitute your local mega tool supplier).

Glad to help, as you can see, 2.7 mm is the closest metric (.1063).

Yep --- and a 2.5mm drill bit is the closest I can get hold of (unless I stumble across some *really* specialized tool supplier somewhere).
