I decided to use some old scraps of 1/8" x 1" aluminum angle. I thought I would just tap a screw hole in it rather than install a nut plate. In the end I used a nut plate on each.
I then drew the hole locations on the panel so they would be close to the center of the brackets and drilled through the panel and the brackets.
With the cowl back off I could then install nut plates on the back of the brackets.
This time I think the cowl is on to stay.

Installing them is easy. I make a template from a piece of galvanized steel. I have 3/16 holes in the flange so I made the center hole in the template 3/16". The rivet holes are 3/32".

The tube from the gascolator to the primer is also clamped to the engine mount tube.
brazing band saw blades. The company has gone out of business so I will have to use it sparingly.
It doesn't take a lot of flux. I put some on the tube then rotate the Cone on the end of the tube to make sure it gets worked inside of it.
