I decided I wanted an IFO so I came here and did some research and found that the PJS300 was highly recommended for this bird. I got the kit a few days ago and was somewhat perplexed on how to mount the engine. Out of boredom, I decided to raid my wifes little tool box, and guess what I found? A machined aluminum bead reamer! Perfect! All I had to do was make a few cuts: :D

and finally make some adjustments with Kapton tape. Kapton because I have it and I am cool. :D No, really, it is just a tad thicker then scotch tape and I like yellow...

For those of you familar with the IFO, the GWS motor is attached using nylon tie wraps. I will use two tie wraps to attach the aluminum mount to the carbon fiber fuse of the Mini IFO. More pics when the plane is done. :) And maybe pics of my wife when she finds out she no longer has a bead reamer!

Fuel tubing

Fuel tubing from the local auto parts store works well, and you don't have to sleep in the dog house :)
Can't recall the size, but its a tight slip fit, no other retention is needed.
