Aeromomentum engine mount doesn't fit. Anyone had trouble with the engine mount from aeromomentum fitting on the 701. I ordered and recieved it and it has several issues around the top front gear mount. everything is 20 mm too low. The side tabs hit the bottom of the front brace. No problem I can cut those but now the bars are hitting the front of the brace. to fix this I'll have to cut two relief notches for the bars to pass. Haven't contacted aero yet. it's like they have their plans or jig off by 20 mm. I'll put pics up later.

I had to modify my engine mount because I upgraded to Zenith's new puc nose gear system. I added 6061 aluminum spacers between the mount and firewall. Aeromomintum is supposed to upgrade their future mounts to solve the issue.
