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.

Just received my 4" Saber Prop Extension for my extended James Cowl and Lycoming A1A engine and it is a work of art. Beautiful!

Going with a three blade Catto prop. Spoke to Nicole the other day and getting that order in this week.
