But, wanted to see if someone could give me your distance from firewall to engine mount flange and firewall to hub.

Also, any cooling issues on the XYZ, and how much weight (if any) did you add to the nose (understand this depends on a lot of variables...just looking for a ballpark)?

Any help would be much appreciated.[/QUOTE

pm me and ill give you my email i will pull my cowl of and show you how to mount your motor the spacer that's required and a better way to mount your cowl allowing air for cooling. Has your xyz got the normal plugs or the smaller ones? the smaller ones are better for clearance.

hey stickmode,

thats how i did my spacing early on in the thread for the XYZ mounting

cant recall the dimension I built up to but I would suspect I posted the dimensions and also the amount of nose weight I had to use in the thread very early on. I think around page 15?? Iím away on holidays so donít have the ability to easily check for you.

no cooling issues whatsoever with my XZY and we get pretty damn warm in Brissy. Stock size plugs on mine but did a little bit of gentle ,panel beating to the caps and they do skit leaning on the cowl. Mine had been flying for about 4 years now and no bro letís with cracking or anything like that.
