Ed Cesnalis Posted April 22, 2013 Report Share Posted April 22, 2013 Jeremy replaced my sprag clutch yesterday and it went fast and smoothly until it was time to replace the warp drive prop. First Jeremy noticed wear on my spinner bulkhead from the prop blades which lead to seeing that all 3 prop blades had a groove cut into them at the root where there is an aluminum sleeves over the carbon fiber. The spinner bulkhead has 3 semi-circular cutouts to provide openings for the prop blades but my former mechanic did not replace the propeller as he had removed it, instead he rotated the prop so that the 3 semi-circular cutouts did not align with the propeller and the blades were in contact with the flange on the spinner bulkhead and vibration turned that flange into a cutting edge that was cutting into each of my prop blades at the root.
