No, It isn’t something I want, it is a recommendation I made.
The dimension given for the new nose gear was fora typical installation ( 2 blade prop.), so a 3 blade would probably require more.
Maybe the advice should be “install your prop and then see if you can get the cowl off. If you can’t, keep lengthening the opening until you can”
The main point is that you have to lower the cowl further when removing it with a 3 blade prop. If you have a nose gear, doing so will require a longer slot.
