Default Mounting the EFii coil pack

Can any fellow Efii users send me some pics of how you mounted the coil pack? The packs are mounted on the Efii bracket and I am thinking the best place is on top of the upper cross bar on the engine mount. I have found a couple of pics of others who have placed it in this location but I can't find any pics of how they attached it.
I'm open to other suggestions as well.

Thanks
-Mike

They do, but I'm with the poster... I haven't found any clear pictures of how people are actually attaching the mount onto the engine mount!

I know some folks have used U-bolts (is that what they're called?) and I believe I've seen zipties as well. I can't quite square it away in my head with the locations of the holes in the mounting plate.

I don't have any clear pics of the attachment, but I used U bolts. 130hrs and it hasn't budged. The holes line up perfectly. Just experiment a little. I know others have used adel clamps. I think I was the second one to use this mounting location. I copied another guy

Default Adel clamps with centre brace

While not an EFII coil pack,I also wanted my coils mounted up high on the centre brace.

I made my own bracket,write up here,
http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...d.php?t=140051

I used the 4 x adel clamps, two at each end . I also added a centre brace to the diagonal cross brace using a 30 mm stand off. This centre brace stopped any fore/aft rocking moment. So you end up with a solid mount that is not touching the engine mount.





For SDS CPI users, I converted my design to CAD and Ross now sells these via his web site when you order through him,

Default Mounting efii coil pack

Thanks! This is exactly what I needed to see. I really like the back brace to the angle. Stabilizing the rocking motion was one of of my concerns with mounting it in this location
