Hello every one,

Thank you all members for sharing experience …

At what stage the engine is better to be installed

I,m building a kit 750  bought it 2008 and  just finished installing the main landing gear and controls . The engine going to be installed is Rotax912, The questions are.
1- What type and  size of bolts and nuts  to fix the engine mount to the fire wall? there are 6 holes for that
2- Is it good time to install the engine now before joining the wings and tail?
