    Mini Telemaster Motor Mount Problems

    I am presently building the newest Mini Telemaster kit and have purchased the recommended accessories to include the ERCBL 400 motor. The latest drawing with the kit shows several motor mounting details ( which were current for previous kits ) but inadequate ( ? )detail for the ERCBL 400.
    I built the 1/4 X 1/2 motor box per the drawing but cannot figure out how the furnished motor mount with the motor attaches since the 4 legs of the mount are bigger than the motor box interior provides.
    I have left a phone message today for the person who is the designer.

    Please help and thank you...........John Horvath

    John,

    You obviously found a Gotcha for us when going to a new motor.
    Can you cut the arms of the radial mount down and drill new holes into it.
    The radia mount does not really need bolts through all 4 holes.
    I would recommend on bolts through the top and bottom arms.
    Off hand I do not have anything more elegant than that.

    Jay,thank you for the response. After not hearing anything from several messages I left with several diffrerent people, I mounted the firewall and built a SLIGHTLY wider motor box and will mount it to the FRONT of the firewall. It did not appear to me that the motor and prop shaft would extend beyond the cheeks if the motor was recessed BEHIND the firewall. The wider motor box will now accomodate all four mounting arms without any cutting or redrilling.

    Seems to me if this is OK (?) you should be noting this arrarngement with the kit drawings and instructions before another dummy like myself runs into the same problem.

    I was out of town for a week and most of the guys are up
    at the NEAT Show. Sorry we weren't responsive.
    I will call this to the attention of the development engineer.
    Thanks for letting us know.
