Propeller On (April 2021)

Having modified the engine it was time to fit the ‘new’ propeller. I say new but G-EJBI’s new prop is around 20 years old. There is not a lot of U.K. prop stock and what is available is quite pricey. There are also  waiting times and delivery costs if importing from the States. I was offered a new but old stock propeller at a reasonable price so that seemed the way forward. Included in the price was an overhaul and fresh paint, it should be good for 2000 hours. The Sensenich propeller fits straight on the hub, which as there is no CSU, places the blades a little further back.  This causes a slight problem as the blades are now very close to the lower cowling and the spinner attachment ring is not usable.
