Default Engine Mount

Hey guys,

Hey buddy of mine has an AS-I with an O-320 using a conical Engine Mount. Long story short, his engine is junk, as built by the sellerís A&P. Heís looking at purchasing a factory new O-360 but the one that is available to him requires a Dynafocal Mount. Are Dynafocal mounts available for the AcroSport or does he have to get one custom made?

Thanks,
Sam

The only way an existing mount has a chance of fitting is if it was a Wag-Aero fuselage and you found a Wag-Aero mount. Best bet is to buy a Dynofocal ring from spruce and build the rest.
