Since you've decided to reveal some of your speed secrets, would you mind saying if the engine mounts to the top or the bottom?

  Removed 3 paint jobs from the previous repairs. Now the fun part begins. Flying over 110 mph really takes its toll on these models.

Is that a metal plate with the LG so, engine mounts to plate then plate mounts to top?
The metal plate is for the LG thatís mounted to the wood brace that bolts in over the bellcrank with 4 bolts. The engine bolts to the wood beams in the upper half.

I hope I don't have to pit next to you because, my plane will look 10 times worse than it already is.
