I'm at the point of fixing the spider tube to the tank. The spider tube also carries the engine mount + engine and is bolted to the outer tube. On top is an oval hole for exiting the filler and vent tubes.

When using a TeeDee, the fuel feed tube exits through the hole in the engine mount and behind the engine. The Conquest, however needs to be mounted with the backplate against the motor mount ring. This means no space anymore for the fuel tube.

The only thing I can come up with is to drill a hole in the side to get this tube out. I looked at pictures on the web but cannot find any similar case. If some of you have another idea...

I started assembling parts. First, I attached the spider tube to the tank with a smear of silicon and tape. The silicon tubes must have no kinks. The feed tube has a loop that sits in the hollow backplate of the engine. Next, the motor mount was fixed. As the engine has to be mounted against the motor mount base, the holes have to be made countersunk with a drill. Because the screws go deeper in the spider tube, I filed off the points to protect the silicon tubes. Then the clear centerbody was checked for a good fit and fixed with 3 small screws.

The .09 engine mount appears to be too weak for a .15 engine.
There is simply not enough meat on the beam to radial mount interface.

Brad, The engine mount is not for the 09. That one is narrower and fits into the stator tube. The motor mount I have is for the .11 - .15 engines. The whole kit was assembled like that. I don't have any specific 09 parts. By the way, the engine is also supported by the stator.

That's where I filed away the edge to make room for the crankcase.

I hope to bring this to a good end. The most difficult part is yet to come: the stator. That piece was already assembled by the previous owner. I have to reposition the 2 upper blades and cut off the tube. The whole unit is too big in diameter to fit into the outer tube. I'll have to take some material off the blades and still make sure that it's still centered!

The stator is modified. I widened the gap and repositioned the 2 upper blades. The major part of the tube was cut off.

Now this is not the end (as Churchill said).



When holding the stator on the engine, the gap between the back of the stator tube end the engine bearers should be 1/8". I have to make notches in the stator hole to slide it further back on the engine.

Today, I ground some notches in the stator tube as indicated in the instructions. This to go around the crankcase webs of the engine.

I still have to remove some material in way of the bosses that sit against the engine mount braces.
