created a new topic ' PA-28 Engine Angle' in the forum. 2 days ago

I have a PA-28-180 and it appears the engine angle is a little more down than expected. It has new engine mounts. The distance from he spinner to the bottom of the cowl is about 3/8" closer than the top. I measured the angle of the engine with respect to the airframe horizontal line (2 screws underneath the pilot window) and it is 5 degrees. I can't seem to find out what the spec is. A local airframe company indicated I would probably have to contact Piper to get that spec, but not sure where to start that process. The firewall and engine cradle have all been checked out and not bends or damage have been noticed.The first question is what is the specification for the engine angle for this aircraft? The second would be, if it is significantly off, what can be done, or is it even a big deal?
Thanks for your help.
