Any engine when mounted out on long standoffs can do it, not just chinese engines.. The torsonal twist is what bends and breaks the ears.. A simple 1/4" plate solves the problems.. Taks about 30 minutes or so to make a pattern and cut out..Problem solved..

with the rubber washer will that help with the tension that gets put on the lugs

Looks like the folks at DLA stepped up and handled the problem as best as it could be handled. I'm not a fan of Chinese engines but have to admire them supporting their dealer and his customer.

+1 that they did in fact handle it properly for the customer.

-1 because this issue has existed on their engines for a long time and is well documented amongst various threads.

They are not alone amongst their peers with having this issue but they do at least seem to take care of the issues when they arise.

Instead of buying metal stand-offs, think about either purchasing one from Gravy Goodness or making one from plywood. You really need to eliminate that twisting that the torque from the motor generates. You'll see the plane shake less at idle, and you won't be dealing with broken mounting ears anymore.

DA ships a set of wooden mounting rings with every DA60... you just use as many as you need. I needed one more than they provided, so I just use one piece as a pattern and made another... took all of 5 minutes.

Thats what I am doing with the standoff I am making a mount like Gravy goodnees makes buy putting a alumium Plate on the front of the standoffs and then bolting the motor too it
