Default Mounting an engine inverted.

keep the center of the tank a little """BELOW""" the needle of the carb. The majority of the tank should be below the carb!! This is going to be tough with that plane because the tank is designed to go in a spot that is too high for that engine.
If the tank is too high, you will need to use either an on board glow system or a cline regulator if you want a nice reliable idle.

remember this........The higher the tank, the more the fuel will siphon into the carb while the engine is trying to idle....with the engine inverted the excess fuel has nowhere to go except into the combustion chamber
