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.
