It might be a little harder with an electric motor as when it attached to a K&B .21 it had included nylon blocks that mounted to the engine tabs.
I've still got some of those around that I never used. You're probably going to have to fabricate a mount for the cover.

I'll have to make a mount out of some kind of material,either wood, plastic or aluminum or just run without the cover,but the cover makes it look more like a real motor.

It will look better on an electric motor than it did on a K&B as by the time you got done drilling holes for the flywheel, carb and head it was pretty much Swiss-cheesed. It was more for shelf queen time than being used in racing.
