Its not that hard to move it. Just pull out the mount put dowels in the previous holes and epoxy them in and sand them flat. Then mount the engine where it is suppossed to go.

RE: mistake mounting engine
It wouldn't make any difference, but it might look better with the crankshaft in the proper position.
Do what Gringo suggested.

RE: mistake mounting engine
Thanks for all the help.Took Gringos' advice and moved the engine down. Got the coupe balanced and ready for first flight if the rain and wind will stop. Don't have a lot of time to fly this time of the year. Maybe this weekend. Again thanks for the help.
