Propeller fitment


Recommended Posts

091_help.gif.c9d9d46309e7eda87084010b3a256229.gif Need some help in terms of propeller fitment?

 

 

The Jabiru service manual for the 2200 engine does not provide any details in terms of a position for fitting the propeller relative to the crank.

 

 

I was intending to fit my prop at 1-7 o’clock position with number 1 cyl on TDC.

 

 

Can anyone provide any help or insight?

 

 

Regards

 

Jack

I just found some details in a Jab construction manual for all models.

 

They say to rotate the engine until one set of flywheel magnets are at the top and then fit the prop in the 11 - 5 o'clock position.

 

Cheers

Jack, how are your prop bolt theads? If you are refitting a jab prop remember that any wear on the thead will result in 7 psi tension achieved too early,resulting in a prop that is not bolted to the hub correctly.Can end up in all sorts of trouble if that happens.

Hi JM,

 

Thanks for that ... I am fitting a carbon fibre prop and fitted it today with all new nuts and bolts.

 

Cheers
