Default LT-40 Motor Mount

I have the motor for the LT-40 conversion to electric. I like the style of motor mount below, but confused on what size to order. I was thinking Medium or large but would like someone to confirm.

This is the motor I have

This is the style of mount I want.

That mount his heavy and clunky - you can extend the firewall easily and make your own and customize it. It is really easy to do!

I used a Heads Up 25 sized motor with that same mount for my Sig Kadet LT-25 kit build that I electrified. So I suspect it will be fine for the LT-40. The specs say the mount adjusts from 2.1" to 3.1", & the motor spec says that it is 1.7" from back of the motor to the hub tip. But what you need to do is check to see what spacing is needed from your LT-40 firewall to the back of the prop. If that distance falls within the 3.8" to 4.8" (& I suspect it will), then you should be fine.
