1. Attach the motor to the motor mount using the 4, M3-.5 X 8 fasteners. Screw the fasteners in until they contact the motor mount then back them out a quarter turn. Ensure that the collar on the motor is centered in the clearance hole in the motor mount. Now tighten the fasteners. Once the motor is secured to the mount, spin the motor to make sure that there are no interferences.

2. Install the motor and mount on the plane using the #4 X 1/2” fasteners. I like how the fasteners have more engagement than the stock fasteners, but you can reuse the stock fasteners if you like.
CAUTION: You are installing fasteners into plastic. Do not over tighten the fasteners and don not use Loctite on these fasteners!

3. Route the wires through the firewall.

4. Install the cowl and check for interferences.

5. Install the spinner prop adapter, spinner base and prop and you are all set!

6. As with any change to your plane, before flying ensure that the center of gravity is correct!
