Question Minor crash Super Cub S (Hobby Zone)

OK I "Cracked the Cowl" BUT :

How do I get the prop spinner off ?

Need to remove prop and then remove Cowl and Glue from the inside, think I will rough up then try JB Quick Weld.

I have pulled just about flipped the Spinner inside out, the manual says to replace motor remove spinner, remove prop remove cowl etc, But HOW??

Thanks

Peel back the 'wings' around the prop and unscrew. That's it. Some are glued. OK to use force.
Small strips of well placed packing or strapping tape will work better and be WAY faster than JB Weld.

Check the shaft for being bent, motor mounts, firewall, etc.
Yes, the motor IS supposed to be pointing to the left and down slightly. You didn't do that.

down and to the left as you face the nose of the plane? rite? (Just wanting to know for myself, as if you were sitting in the cockpit i thought it was down and to the right, so if you were in front of the plane it would be down and to the left.)

Down and to the right, from the 'pilots' point of view.

Be easy with the paint, especially the back. Guys that do a total paint job are often surprised to find out they screwed up the center of gravity and now need more repairs after the post-fix flight.
