Upside down engine mounting is done frequently. Some Cubs mount the engine
to the side so the head gives a semi-realistic look sticking out thru the
cowling. Depends on the size of the plane. Does the kit manufacturer have
a e-mail address or 800 number you can ask them? Give some more detail
about which kit you have to this news group and you should find plenty of
help. My Sig 1/4 scale Cub will have the Zenoah G-23 mounted upside down
too. Good Luck
Lower the tank so the centerline is as close to the carb spraybar as possible.
Don't start it inverted, then turn it over. It's a little dangerous.
When ***, turn the engine over a couple of times to make sure you don't
have a fuel lock in the chamber. Good luck with it ,and write if you have any
"There's a Hun in the sun!"
I've been told (experienced facts) that when idling, glow plug may have
troubles keep it's heat up because fuel does "drops" to glow plug.
Especially when idling longer. One solution for that is onboard glow...
