Short Description:  Set prop pitch

I haven't done any work at the hangar since December. First it's been too cold. Second, I'm waiting for the replacement parts for two Van's service bulletins -- the rejiggered muffler exhaust pipes and the top engine mount standoff. Both, apparently are back ordered and it will likely be at least April.

But the cold snap finally ended and the temps hit 40. The digital level with the magnetic base arrived and so it was time to set the prop pitch.

I set the level to zero on the right side canopy deck, then put the TOOL 0002 (I had to buy it) on the prop on the right side whose blades had been set to 0 . degrees. Then i attached the level to the tool (a little finagling here because the entire bottom is not magnetic, and pushed the top flange as indicated to seat it properly and measured. I was pretty close on both but not good enough. Loosened the bolts and set it to 71.2 for the Rotax iS.

Then i flipped the prop around and repeated the process. Got it set to 71.2 but it would consistently flip to 71.3 when I tightened the bolts but eventually got it to hold. Then tightened all the bolts to 250 inch pounds.
