About 12 years ago when I installed my WW200RV on my Mattituck TMX IOF-360 WW told me clocking didn't matter. My engine stops with the blades at 3 and 9 o'clock. I find that convenient when removing the cowl. It has about 400 hours and is smooth as silk and the blade tips have not come flying off! Yes I know clocking doesn't have much to do with smoothness.

I'm at my hangar now, and I verified that the engine is at TDC on the compression stroke.

Prop is at 12/6. Mag clicks just as it swings through 6.

The mags are properly timed, we verified that. Flywheel TDC mark matches the little starter hole.

It's already safety wired, but I went back and added some plastic sheathing. I was actually wondering about that safety wire all jammed against that hub...

Reviving this thread.
I am planning to install a WW 300-RV prop on my 7A with IO-360-M1B.
WW plans page 7 depict the drive lugs extending past the flywheel surface .180"-.200". Mine are .140"
Has anyone delt with this recently?
What was the solution?
