Default Moki 1.80 with radial engine mount

I have a Moki 1.8 with the radial engine mount. It has two mounting holes on the bottom of the mount and one at the top. How do I mount this engine? Where is the crank centerline? Can somebody give me some step by step instructions? I've done alot of building but this is the first radial engine mount.

Thanks,


Jerry

I like the radial mount. You can rotate this mount on the back of the engine so that the two holes are in any position. I have my Moki 180 set up so that the motor is at 90%, to the firewall, and the two holes are down at the bottom of the fire wall. The crank is right through the middle of the mount. You can see on this photo of my Ultimate the hole on the right hand side of the cowl for the glow ignighter.

Hope this all helps. By the way I use a Cline regulator and O% nitro.

jlchapman,
your mount is installed in the only position it that doesn't work. Remove the backplate screws and rotate the mount 180 degrees (or as suggested by tonyc ... put it where you want it) but don't put the single mounting hole behind the cylinder.
cheers'

I am just about ready to mount a Mokie 210 on the Hanger Sundowner, I am looking for a metal beam mount. I really don't want to use a back plate type because being this is a racer it may have a ground hit and I am worried about hurting the engine crank case...
Can you help me find one.
Thanks

A high speed crash will tend to rip off the muffler, damage the carb, and bend the shaft.
