The cowl will cover the range of recommended engines but the cylinder
head will protrude slightly in most cases.
The muffler will be enclosed in the cowl with a 4-stroke engine but
will protrude through the bottom of the cowl with a 2-stroke and
the cowl must be trimmed accordingly.
The firewall is indented to allow for inconspicuous mounting of
the muffler, close to the fuselage.
