Default Finding an engine mount for the RCV-130. Any recommendation?

I took my RCV-130 to the LHS today to find an engine mount. Despite a wide array of choices,
it was apparent that none of them would fit the unusually wide bolt-up pattern of the RCV-130.

Can anybody make a recommendation for a good engine mount? Thanks

Have you looked into the two piece mounts, the ones that look like T's. They should work just fine because you can mount them as wide as you want. I have a pair that measure 104mm from the firewall to the end of the mount. If you are interested, I can give them to you.

It's not the width that I'm stuggling width, but rather the length. The forward holes are rather far forward, such that the carb interfers with many mounts (including the T style you indicated). I bought something today that I will experiment with. I'll post photos when i get a chance

Great Planes adjustable 1.20 - 1.80 mount from Tower hobbies.
Perfect for length, and adjustable for width.

I buy many of these and the next size down and use them on all my engines.
