Engine Mount and Installation

 

The JetPROP DLX conversion is essentially a firewall forward conversion (Fig. 4). Prior to mounting the Pratt & Whitney PT6A-35 turbine, the old piston engine is removed and the firewall is rebuilt.

Conversion begins in earnest with the mating of Pratt & Whitney's 750hp PT6A-35 turbine engine to the Malibu/Mirage airframe (Fig. 5).

Another view of the engine and engine mount (Fig. 6). The intake nacelle includes an ice door to prevent damage to the PT6A-35 engine.
