the engine mount on my plane suddenly broke when it unexpectedly met the ground. I didn't think the repair would be that difficult. But the type of mount that was in the plane is no longer made. the local hobby shop said the only option was the great planes adjustable mount.
My problem is the adjustable mount is slightly larger than the mount that was in the plane. the footprint to mount to the firewall is close but not exact. also the arms that the engine mounts to are thicker not leaving enough room for the engine to slip into.
what do i do?
