Prop to cowl clearance

Bill Percival

Recommended Posts

I think mine is about 1/2" but I don't know a best answer.   Even with in-cowl exhausts, overheated props do not seem to be a problem.  I saw pics once of a hub that got scorched.  I think the reason was  because the prop bolts got loose and it was creating friction between the hub and flange at every engine pulse.

I tried to do some searching but these days, I find that google doesn't catalog a lot of the canard sources.  I bet cowl clearances has been discussed a hundred time but I could not easily find anything.  You would probably do better to do a google image search for "Long-ez Longez longeze) and just check the pictures.
