Step 1

Fit the Right Engine Compartment Wall to the Rear Frame as shown, aligning the three screw holes:

Once placed, secure the Engine to the Rear Frame from below with three (3) Type B screws:

With the Engine assembly secured, we can rotate the two Rear Exhaust components back into the proper orientation:
