Default Engine Mounted

Not anywhere near as bad as I thought it would be. By myself. I've swapped a few engines in cars so I applied a few tricks.

Nice job Larry... looks like a M1B with dual PMags, same as mine. I'm hoping to have my engine by EOM.

I'm trying to decide where to put my two SS pass throughs for wiring. I'm building a slider and thinking that outside forward 3 ribs is the place to go centered in that bay. Thinking all the engine stuff (CHT, EGT, FF, etc) on the left (pilot) side and then higher voltage on the right.

Yes. IO360M1B with dual P-mags.
Passthrus are pretty much what you are planning. One each side. One high, one low voltage. Note locations for control cables. Especially the throttle cable on the new A model mount. It goes through the recess. Keep the area above the mount clear so the battery will go in. I'm hoping mine goes in. It's really tight behind the engine.
