I have an MT two bladed aluminum prop on my RV-8 and it started spitting grease at about 430 hours and 72 months since it was rebuilt by MT. It was their test prop when they developed the prop for the RV-8. I have an MT Governor also and I experienced an overspeed of about 3000RPM and shortly thereafter I started noticing the grease. Had the Prop and governor overhauled to the tune of a little over $3000 and I now watch the RPMs a little closer. We were doing formation when I experienced the overspeed. Have put 50 hours on since the overhaul and all is good so far. There is no lubrication required of the prop between overhauls. Just inspection for grease leaking from the hub.
