Cowl for 4 star 40

Started to build a nose cowl for a four-star 40 (R/C Moedeler, Vol 37 (9), p76). Now that the engine is mounted, and before starting the cowl, I realized I won't be able to reach the mounting nuts after I cover 3 sides of the nose.

Do people mount engines with screws, or is there a tool to hold the nut that comes in from the 'upper' side of the engine?

I have threaded motor mounts, with a tap, in a 40 size plane!

I have used self tapping screws, but don't recommend that, no need too explain I hope!
