Thanks for confirming what I was thinking. But I'm still not positive that this had any to begin with though. I might have created up thrust with the crash, then dismantling the motor and mount, I might have inadvertently put it together backwards giving me an artificial down thrust. LOL. But yes, right and down is ideal to cancel out the torque of the prop and to get the plane to fly level. It just seems that my down right thrust is a little excessive. So if someone could do some distance measurements between the lip of the cowl and the front of the dummy radial engine, that would be awesome!
