I have started building a new engine mount, firewall, and cowling.
I will be moving the thrustline up 8.5 degrees to + 2.5 nose up from -6.5 nose down, which it was before I started. I will also be moving the engine rearward 4.5" , this plus the removal of the starter/flywheel and a catto prop will put my empty cg at 16" or around what a 95hp supercub is.
Just some background info. I have an O-360 cub and the starting cg was 12.4 and the empty weight was 1237 when I started . It is now 1105 and the cg will be 16.0
As you can see below I had to move the horizontal tube connecting the top two engine mounts, and the firewall will have a large box to except the rear accessories.
