Interesting all the issues with props, just last night I decided to mount my Catto Tri-Prop just to turn the prop on my brand new 1 year old IO 360 Mattituck Engine to push some lubricant around, 4 plugs are out having moisture plugs for storage. On my second pull off the compression stroke the next blade came around and hit me right in the head knocking me to the ground, no blood just a nasty dent on the head. Today I pulled all the plugs, learned my lesson... Still not sure why my wife came out to the garage laughing when she saw me on the ground...
