Here's a few links to basic rubber motor prep:

After tying the single strip of rubber on the loop use good thread or small rubber band to bind all the strands together making a loop to attach to the anchor and prop hook or if an "O" ring was added to the motor to keep the "O" ring at the desired location.  I'll keep looking for the article I mentioned.

Yes, it's been done and some often do this adding a strand of thicker rubber as a bit of a kicker to the motor.  You just have to tie it off before doing any lube!  Good luck with your motor.  I remember reading an article a while back on doing just this type of motor.  I'll see if I can find it again.

I wish to fly with a three strand motor. NOT Three loops. Anyone out there doing this?
