Jim,
What model do you have? They are all just a little different.

Most were originaly mounted above the wing butt fitting on the forward spar. But, you mostly see them now mounted between the landing gear.

I have a Chief and the mount is from a Luscombe. I will have to remake the mount , it fits between the main gear.

Flyboy did you fly non-stop across the U.S.A. in it?
