Brief Description: Mounted and set adjustable prop
If there was ever any doubt around the neighborhood as to what I was building, tonight settled the issue. Using six AN6-36A bolts (torqued to 25 ft/lbs) I secured the crushpate to the prop hub and spinner bulkhead. Additionally, the four AN4 bolts at the end of the prop hub were tightened to 10 ft/lbs (120 in/lbs). While I had the Warp Drive protractor, I preferred to use the method demonstrated on the EAA website. I used my Craftsman digital level and reset it to zero when up against the face of the crushplate. This set my reference angle. I then took the level out to each wingtip and set the angle to 8.5 degrees. BTW, first thing this evening I applied the 2nd coat of paint to the panel and it looks great. I'll wait at least 24 hours before starting to install my instruments.
It's a plane!
Prop set at 10 and 4 o'clock with engine at TDC
With the prop on, I have one inch to spare when the garage door comes down
