Looking good indeed.

The center hub looks like its a little low at the moment? not central...

But I hate it when people are critical about things when they have not done it themselfs. ;-)

SW :D

I would presume that the reduction will be above the crank so as to put the prop centrally in the cage.

Si, I take it you did not read the bit about having to get the prop back before mounting the engine? :D

I did yes, but just looked and thought the mounts were going to be long... but Pete B has hit the nail on the head I think.

pete has indeed hit the nail simon, the engine is not bolted in yet,i need the reduction plate and prop before i can center the engine,thats the bottom pulley in the pic the center of the top pulley should be in the middle of the cage when i fit it.theres not a lot of room in the dk frame for the prop.so it needs to be spot on.ive aloud for rubber spacers to raise the engine even though i didnt get any vibration in the other frame and that was with no rubber mounts. whats all this talk about rubber///// its going to look tasty in this frame...

this is how it will sit in the frame,i have some strong exhaust strap that i will bed the engine on,it will take the vibration its 25m thick i think it will work.will have exhaust cut and silencer on 2morro,looking good,,,i dont know about the welds might crack,im cracked/////

I dont think your tank is wide enough :roll:

It should stop a lot of air reaching the prop?

I think the rubber mounts are there to take the vibration stresses away from the metal joints, to prevent (cracking welds) and so on.

SW :D

Check that the rubber mounts do not allow the prop to hit the cage due to torque from the engine. A problem Parajets have suffered with in the past.

Looking good, well done.

I have an old solo 210 engine from a microlite I still have which I am considering doing something with.

Rich if you ever consider getting rid of the solo engine, let me know.
