ffkiwi,

The engine mounts for the reed engines being either 4 holes or 2 holes really depend on the engine.
The 4 hole mount was for the 049 engines. The 2 hole mount was for the 06/08 engines.
I have lifted photos from a site that has the reed mounts.

The four hole mount is for the 049 engine.

The one red mount is for a 06 reed and it has two holes to bolt to the back plate.

Here are photos of my Enya 10 glow.
As you notice the carb is not tilted forward, sot it is around 1970 -1980 version.
Later version had the carburetor tilted forward so a muffler could be installed.

This engine has the copper gasket installed under the cylinder head.

As I thought and guessed in an earlier post-a different mount for the 049....has that one been stripped or were the 049 ones not colour anodised?.....I think if I get one I would anodise it red to match the 06 one..which is quite attractive. I have from time to time considered taking a mould of the 06 one and laying up a carbon-glass replica....I think there is enough material thickness in the original to make a glass-carbon copy feasible....it can join the list of back burner moulding projects of which I have far too many already...it does look from your pics that they are two entirely different units...and not produced from the same basic press form...

I need to find my NIB sample-and see if the leaflet has part numbers printed on it...its tucked away in a larger box of asstd engines somewhere I haven't managed to locate since my last housemove...

ffkiwi,
If you had access to a 3D printer, that would be the best way to make those mounts?
When I worked for Caterpillar, we had a 3d printer that we could make prototype parts with it.
Some parts we use a Romer arm with a Keyence Laser Tracker mounted to it.
First you open up the CAD folder to calibrate the laser and name the file that your going to make.
Then you place your part on the granite table, then you sweep your part with the laser tracker.
Go over to your computer and you will see a 3D view of your part.
You'll have to work with the CAD file to what you want. In this case, I would make the motor mount 1/8" thick (about 3mm).
So it would copy the one side like the other on the 3d printer. Just remember to add the holes in you CAD drawing.
You'll see the drop in the laser scan where the holes should be (from the outside scan).

Gee I miss working on that 3d printer ( my boss misses me doing that stuff -- only sent one person for the training - me).
I retired a year and a half later.
I was given 2 weeks training at Keyence in Itasca, Illinois (10 hour days -- Monday thru Friday)

I had a part time job using that knowledge to make carmates (floor mats) cargo mats and things like that for vehicles.
Covid-19 caused me to be get let go.
It was a good job. Go to the rental car agency, rent a new car (2019 or 2020 model).
Take it back to the factory, laser scan the floor mat area, trunk, fenders, windows, parts of the car to make the products for.
Then take the car back to the rental agency. Usually did two or three cars a day (or pickup trucks SUVs.)

(WeatherTech) Lasered floor mats for a perfect fit!

Useful skillset you have there sosam117......we have a number of 3-D printer guys among our club members (Wellington MAC, NZ)-guess I ought to talk to them about feasibility...the scanning element would be the only aspect that might cause problems...I don't know how many-if any-have access to a 3D scanner...

The .049 mount is easily cut from metal. The .06 mount would need some more time if that shape is important. If plastic is acceptable, printing is the cheap and easy route today. Scanning isn't necessary if you can draw it in CAD.

The laser scanning makes it quick and easy.
If you have a CAD program, it can be done. It will just take a lot longer to do.

Every time Cat. got new equipment, they usually sent someone to get training for that equipment.
Years ago, everyone jumped at the chance to be the person to get trained.
Then Cat. changed their travel policy. If you were not traveling on your scheduled work hours, you didn't get paid.
So, if you work Monday - Friday 7:30am to 3:30pm and traveled to the training site during that time you got paid.
Most of the traveling time was on the weekend (time and a half on Saturday and double time on Sunday).
But that is not your regular scheduled time for work, so you didn't get any pay, you traveled for free (for the company - cost cutting).

I didn't care. It got me out and away from the plant to do something different and a new city to explore (on my own time.)
Cat. paid for the hotel, car (gas), and meals ( and any plane tickets/ train tickets).
In 2008 I spent a month of training at Taylor Hobson ( in Leicester England). They work 36 hours a week there! Done working at noon time on Friday (4 hours of work that day)
So from Friday at noon through the weekend I could do some sight seeing.
In 2012 I had two weeks in Hamburg (Germany for training). Again, I did sight seeing on the weekend.
My co-workers just didn't see that? If I'm not getting paid, I'm not going! Stupid?
Went to different Countries (England, Germany, France, Mexico, Japan, Norway, Chile) on Cat.'s money.
Didn't work the weekend -- no problem -- sight seeing!

I usually rented a car in the country I was in. My boss thought I was crazy?
The funniest time getting my rental was in France. A "just married" couple (from the U.S.) just filled out the paper work to get their rental car, went out to the lot to get the car. In the mean time I was getting my rental car (a Peugeot Turbo diesel -- sweet car!).
the young couple came back in and said we can't drive that car! There is no gear shift where is the P/D/N/L. there this stick on the floor? They couldn't drive a stick shift car! I had a small chuckle. You can get an automatic but have to ask for one.
The French agent muttered (shiftless Americans). I told the agent I'll take a manual transmission car!

After the training from Taylor Hobson, They offered me a job at their company as a service rep. for the U.S.
I was told that I have a good work attitude. I said thanks but maybe in five years? I'd have 30 years with Caterpillar in five years and I can retire with a full pension. They called my when those five years passed and asked if I still want to be the U.S. service rep. (I was surprised?) and I turned them down. I worked 5 more years for Cat. and retired (35 years).

Interesting work history, thanks for sharing, sosam117. You really did some neat stuff with interesting high tech methods.

In 1984, I was appointed by my manager as the CAD/CAM project engineer to develop the MIL-777D piping libraries on our then new 2nd generation Computervision system. I worked in Long Beach Naval Shipyard's Planning Department, Propulsion Piping Branch. I spent 4 years with DOD before returning to McDonnell Douglas.

Then, one could buy a CV system for $120k (inflation, now $300k), which included a color workstation, 3 black and white stations, 36" electrostatic plotter and a DEC VT100 text terminal. Yet this was considered cost effective over the previous McDonnell Douglas McAuto CAD mainframe based system the shipyard previously leased.

I got to go to all of the CAD training. Even could model 3D stuff. Spent a year working in the industrial engineering department working for the Air Force at now closed McClellan AFB in Sacramento, CA, at their air refitting facility (sorry, using Navy terms  tongue ). I was asked to show how they could set up a hangar with an F-111 on display for an official ceremony with seats for 100 important dignitaries. I quickly went to work on their CV system, did an isometric (3D) drawing with hidden line removal showing chairs, stands, an aircraft and walls of the hangar projected. Did it in several days.

My training enabled me to do this, I knew how to quickly create entities and clone them.

To my surprise, my supervisor told me when he came back from his upper manager presentation, comment received was that the only thing I did was play on the CAD system.

Tens of thousand dollars of software (CV was easier to use than Autocad!) plus training, and I get a negative dig for doing an excellent job. (You may wonder why I returned to McDonnell Douglas and stayed until their downturn.) Those Dilbert cartoons are true!

Yep,
I had a 8.5x11 inch picture hanging in my cubical.
It was a photo if Albert Einstein and his quote on it that said "Smart technology breads stupid people".
And another sign that had "Good" "Fast" "Cheap"
If you want it Good, it won't be fast or cheap.
If you want it Fast, it wont be good or cheap.
If you want it Cheap, it won't be good or fast.

If you took the time to read this (good)
You took time to read it (not fast)
Printed out on this piece of colored paper (not cheap)
I have my priorities.
Get it, Got it, GOOD!

I just purchased the two diesels (Ultra 11CXD with mufflers) that Ken Enya had the other day (09/21/20).
From his website.
Just got an update from Ken that it was delayed.
Shipment of my order will be delayed by a month to month and a half.
Looked on his website and now it has it where the Ultra 11CXD engines are "sold out".
I guess I got the last of the diesel engines?

Also ordered two of the glow Ultra 11CX and mufflers, which has the same delay time.
I guess that Ken has to build them? Though it seems he still has these available on his website?

Maybe I'll pick up "two" 15CX engines (before they're gone?)
