Beech-End Grain Motormount for ZG 20
Beech is 3-times lighter than Aluminium, because the end grain is used, the compression strength is very high. Additionally, wood is restraining the vibrations much better than metal. The Novotex end plate helps to distribute the load from the narrow crankcase seating. I glued the motormount onto the firewall with Araldite 2011 and the Novotex end plate onto the motormount as well. The result is a spacing of about 32 mm and a rigid motormount, with a weight of only 25g. The aluminum backplate of the ZG 20 (it weights 28,5g) has not to be applied anymore.
