Tell me what you think so far.
Looks OK If You are going to use a spinner you will have to adjust for the spinner backing plate and if not you will have to adjust for prop clearance. Either move the motor forward or work with the cowl, which ever is easiest. I suggest about 1/16 inch clearance. Try not to have to use any spacers on the prop adapter. and be sure your prop is balanced. Using spacers opens you up to vibration problems.
