Our aircraft is a CH601HD with a Rotax 912S with a GSC 3-blade ground
adjustable prop with the long cowl with a 4-inch prop extension. With the
912S (100 HP), we have a 68" prop; I have on my wall the 66" GSC prop for
the 912 (80 HP). The same prop extension has the same holes for either
prop or either engine. Is it possible that your problem can be solved
more cheaply and more easily by getting a different (correct) prop
extension? Personally, I like the GSC props - it is very easy to inspect
the varnished wood for a crack at the prop tips. It happened to us; a
tiny crack appeared (we think it must have picked up a stone). We bought
a new matching blade from GSC; in fact, they quickly shipped us a matched
set of 3 new blades for the price of one - good company.
