Default Motor Mount That Fits a DLE 20RA Engine

Any recommendations for a motor mount that is suited for a DLE 20RA Engine. I tried a DU-BRO No. 688 but the beams are to short. The muffler hits the mounting bolts in the rear. Help!

The Hanger 9 HAN2033 aluminum mount works. There are also several plastic mounts that work.

Plus 1 for the HH aluminum mounts. They are a perfect match for the DLE 20.

wish the DLE 20RA manual wouldn't list the dubro mount as acceptable. I got the engine and mount from Tower last month. needless to say, it doesn't fit. I ended up getting some 1/2 " aluminum square stock from work and made spacers to fit between the engine lugs and the mount beams. I used 5 #8 cap screws per side to bolt it all together from the engine, to the spacer, to the beam. it works, but it was a pain.

My Vallyview 21cc took a mount 4" long engine mount, from firewall to end of mount............anything shorter might not work, gas engine with rear carbs and carb blocks due get a little long. My engine is just far enough off fire wall to allow the choke plate to operate.

Thanks for the info roscoerc. I used the mounts that came with my Horizon Super cub, that I didn't use on it, was a good fit and made of Aluminum. How do you like when you talk to a hobbico Tech. they tell you you must of mounted the mounts backwards. Get him a job at Hobby King! Thanks again for the info.
