Finally after months of researching for the most environmentally friendly engine possible it arrived and installation began! The installation started with the modification of the old iron bars that support the engine. After deciding where the motor should sit lengthwise which took a lot of measuring and calculating before we threaded eight m10 holes for the rubber mounts. The lombardini is significantly smaller than the Md2b and since I got a new shaft we could move the engine 12 cm forward witch opens up new storage possibilities in the engine room.
We were supplied with an engine jigg which simplified the adjustment for the shaft angle. Unfortunately the engine had to go lower than the ajustment nuts on the mount would allow so we had to use washers to get the engine to height. It took a while before our brains got used to the multidimensional logic and a lot of measuring with the thickness gauge was required before the shaft was aligned well enough to get the engine in place. We improvised another lifting rig from the safetyrail and the engine was put to rest on its mount just after dusk.
