CAE CH-EM70

The CAE CH-EM70 engine mounts do not fit. The engine hits the firewall. In my opinion the engine sits too high.

The plates are fitted on the wrong sides in this photo. The engine should be raised on the RHS to provide clearance for the HQ-WB steering box.

I do not think it will be possible to remove enough of the sump for the minimum clearance of 10mm to be achieved. Note: The mounts are fitted to the wrong sides.
