J3 Cub Motor install

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Not sure if I'm in the right section for this question but I'm going to install an electric motor on a Great planes J3 cub I bought used here with no cowl which I have on order. This is the kit built 76.5" wing span. My question is what is the spacing between the firewall and the prop back plate. Should be easy enough to determine once I have the cowl but I would like to fly it while I'm waiting for it. If anyone has one of these I would appreciate your help.

Get one of these and it won't matter what the distance is.

It's an adjustable motor mount

Do not be divided from the truth by what you would like to Believe!
