Thinking of making an offer on a Sensenich PROP 72FM8S9-1 (85) that's for sale. I called Sensenich and they said this prop would work on a Thorp, but I have to buy the 4" spacer from them to make it work. This prop is off and RV and has a 2" spacer. Just to cover my bases, does anyone have any experience (good or bad) with this prop on a Thorp?

I have a spare 2" spacer that might work if you need it. My Sensenich has two 2" spacers.

Thank you for letting me know! I really want a CS prop, but if I can find a used metal Sensenich FP prop at a reasonable price, I may do that. Beautiful airplane by the way.
