Default Hung the Engine!

Yesterday I hit a huge milestone! I managed to hang an airplane engine! It was more difficult than I thought it would be, but after some caressing and encouragement, it installed perfectly.



I have a full write up with more pictures on my website and instagram. This community has been critical in answering all my questions before I even ask them. VAF has been invaluable!

Bret, I was actually struggling with those bottom two washers! I read the instructions probably a dozen times before installing, and when I got to the bottom mounts I, of course, installed without the washers...luckily it all worked out and things fit perfectly!
