Default RE: Saito Carb

Glad to share. I used a DuBro antivibe mount. In order to maintain the proper prop hub position, I had to recess the firewall to use that mount. If I had it to do over, I'd probably have used a different mount. The metal Saito mounts are nice, if a bit pricey, and the Dave Brown mounts are what I have used on other planes. They have a round mount flange, and you have to make sure you get the 4-stroke version, the arms are longer. Here are some pics of my installation, and a pic of the DB mount. The part # on the package has "FS" in it to denote 4-stroke:

My exhaust is the older style, if you can find one, it looks better than the newer cast muffler. One of the 90 degree"buttons" would work even better than the elbow, because I had to heat and bend the elbow to get the exhaust to exit the bottom of the cowl. Here's a picture of that, too (can order it through Horizon).
