    :I_agree:. Nice "Comfy" fit always beats a "Tight" fit...….:D.

    The canisters and mounts are here so I did some test fitting. Now I need to make a bracket to hold the mounts.

    After much testing and trial fitting, I finally have a mount for the canisters. I used what Krill calls Alutex, which is a fiberglass and liteply sandwich. You'll notice I used blind nuts spun on upside down while test fitting. That made it simple to spin them on and off for the 20 plus times I had the piece in and out.;) It will get Nyloks on final assembly.

    I still need to add a strengthener along the width of the back edge to keep it from flexing too much.

    Hey guys, the engine is in! 3w110ib2 ... anyone experience with it? and maybe tips for drilling holes? since this is my first composite aircraft ... once I have installed the engine, I will continue with the inside of the fuselage and also post pictures again. Thanks in advance for any tips!

    I had a nib 3W-110 and sold it. :mad::(

    Problem is my 106 keeps running year after year after year and I couldn't justify swapping them out.

    I would recommend a larger prop due to 3W's torque/compression vs DA/DLE. I believe 3W's need 20 gallons of fuel to get broken in properly.

    It's been awhile but most certainly agree @dhal22 . If I remember correctly it took my 150 about 15 gallons using Dino oil before switching to a synthetic.

    Well it's been quite some time since I've posted in this thread, and I've gotten quite a bit farther along so I'll try to get caught up here in the next day or so.

    Okay, I'm going to post some pictures to catch up to where I am now.

    The Canister mount is finished, reinforced, and glued together with Hysol.

    I cut holes in the top of the engine dome to access the batteries and ignition. The ignition is mounted to a piece of plywood and bolted in between the holes.
