P-47 Jug: Motor Mount Alignment
I noticed while doing the Cowl mod how severe the motor mount was out of alignment.
To correct this I made a wider firewall mount for the SK 580 motor mount so I could move the whole assembly 1/4" to the left (facing engine), and still be able to use the 2 screw holes on the right side of the firewall. Because I already had the 2 dg. thrust built into the mount, it was simply a matter of moving the mount to the left.
Once done, the prop shaft now exits the engine compartment dead center.
