Hanging the engine
I had intended to delay attaching the tail cone as late as possible but I'd like to hang the engine sooner to let it settle as much as I can before fitting the cowl sometime downstream. It occurred to me, though, that it might not be stable on the tricycle gear with all that weight up front and nothing behind the main gear. So, has anyone mounted the engine before attaching the tail cone and, if so, was it a good idea?
