I've got that motor on mine flipped around on the original motor mount can.
Then I burned a slot thru the housing below the motor and slid an 8" 'zip tie' thru and sinched the whole thing up. Rock solid and if I have to get it out I just snip the zip tie. Don't glue that mount in and don't use an 'inrunner'.
