Airfield tempest engine replacement

I need some help. I crashed my tempest and although I didn't do a lot of damge the engine has become loose. Can anyone tell me how to get to the engine so I can figure out how to fix it? Do I have to cut the cowling to be able to examne the engine?

This is the “Electric Plane Talk” forum. You will have to post your question in the forum for “Engine” powered planes.
Maybe you can find it here.

Just a guess after looking at pictures of the model, but once the spinner and prop is removed will that give you access.

Is it the right model for you ?.

I'm not trying to be nasty or awkward, but I did notice you have crashed a few models and I personally wouldn't have thought the Tempest is ideal as a trainer if you lack experience. They look fantastic, and that's probably a good reason to get one, if you have the experience to fly one.

Just trying to help, please don't take my comments in a bad way.

I was prepared to chastise the OP for calling his motor an engine, then I read this: Difference Between Motor and Engine

Time to stop living in the past.

This is how its cousin the P-51’s motor is mounted. What’s that hole in the top of the fuselage just behind the nose on the Tempest? Can you get a screwdriver in there? It also looks like the front of the spinner will pop off giving access to the prop nut.

according to the descriptions, both terms were used to describe devices that get things done. so they seem to be substitutes even prior to the 19th century. yet, the author writes: "In the early 19th century, the meanings of motor and engine had already begun to converge". a bit late, methinks.

so, if we ignore the 1853 coining of "engine", can we assume that OP is referring to a torture device or trap? where are the Feds when you need 'em?
