Here we marked where the oil access on the top of the motor is on the cowling, and cut a 5″ hole. Then a 5 BID flange is made behind it in the standard way. Later the inside edge will be made straight with a hinge, and then a Hartwell latch door release will be riveted in place. Then the flange is trimmed back, and the area filled in for a smooth transition.
