Default Is this correct spacer?

Can someone confirm this is the correct spacer for a Sensenich 70CM6S prop?. It seems it should have lugs for each bolt rather than 2 alignment pins?

It certainly looks like a Sensenich fixed pitch they just have 2 dowels , at lest all I’ve encountered.

Internet advice worth what you paid for it

edit: just noticed it looks like 2 spacers stacked together ?? I don’t know for sure but I doubt it’s wise or acceptable to stack multiple spacers!!!

Looks correct to me assuming you are installing a Sam James long cowling.

Default Spacer

Please put one bolt in that spacer. You will be upset when it falls on your toe. Looks good put rear spinner bulk plate on check for space to cowl and centre a little high to hood
Good job
