Default School me on this prop spacer

I have this spacer and a wood prop that I want to bolt up. I have no experience with spacers and the proper install of different setups. My thoughts are to press the locating pins flush but the second part is I don't have the six centering bushings that slide into the back of the wood prop. Is this ok to do or do I need a different spacer for my application? Any information would be appreciated.

That spacer is for a Sensenich Metal prop and is not suitable for a wood prop.

You need an extension that is specifically made for a wood prop.
