Maybe you could experiment with yours and let everyone know?
Not to poke the eyes LOL, but if you put wooden washers on two top screws of the motor mount the motor is tilted backwards but the force (pushing) is directed up :-).
Where , normally in pusher planes you want the center of the force ( pushing) in this case motor shaft pointing ( forward) as close to CG of the plane as possible.
So this is why I am a bit confused.
