    you only need a castellated socket,i just made one from a socket I had.

    pretty sure you can buy them on ebay if you don't want to make one.

    assuming this is your first time droppin/fitting the engine on the blade,be very carefull loosening the allen head engine mount bolt,it goes through the frame+engine to the other side,but it also turns the engine spacer mount,which has 2 tabs on it that lock onto the engine bolt (you'll see what I mean when you get to it.anyway,the tabs are very easy to snap if the engine is under any load and then can be a real pain to loosen off.not expensive to buy,just a pain in the arse when you snap them.
