When a fixed pitch propeller is used instead, a 2.25" extension (actually spacer) is required.
Prior to developing a cowl designed for use with the Hartzell compact hub prop., the cowls required a 4" spacer be used with a fixed pitch prop, or the use of the extended hub version (approx. 1.75" longer than the compact hub) of the Hartzell propeller.
Opinions, information, and comments, are my own unless stated otherwise.
You are personally responsible for determining the suitability of any tips,
ideas, etc. obtained from any post I have made in this forum.
