Default mounting my G-26

I have a Zenoah G-26 that I want to put on my Wild stik 1.20 the engine sticks out in a couple places in the back preventing me from mounting it directly to the flat surface of the firewall and i wondered if anyone had done this before. i wasent sure if it was better to bring the engine out with some spacers or if i should carve into the firewall a little bit. i also wondered how high up i should mount the engine. Thanks.

I would suggest using some beveled washers to set right and down thrust in the motor. This will space the back of the engine out enough to clear, or at least it did on my triplane.

The choice is yours really. If the engine is in the right place and you don't want to move it out, then cut into the FW. If you can easily move the engine forward, take that route.
