Engine Installation Again

I picked up where I left off yesterday by continuing with engine preparations. I added safety wire to the bottom of the baffles, to hold the front and back curved sections inward. I also added safety wire to the oil filter, tachometer drive cap, and oil pressure relief valve. Then I reinstalled the engine and put cotter pins in the castellated nuts that hold the engine to the mount.
