Okay fellow Thorpers, does anyone have at their disposal a spinner with back and bulkhead plates for sale? It could be uncut or cut for Aymar Demuth prop.
Thanks....Ira

Duh! Well yeah. I sell spinners. I have spinners, backplates, and fixed pitch front plates for sale. The spinner is coming off dental surgery and told me last week he would work on a new design for the forward bulkhead that will fit better than the three examples I currently have. John Linke has been instrumental in helping the design and has been waiting for this one for a while. PM me your needs Ira.

Yes. I have spinner packages for the AD type props. If you have a prop in the 4.5 inch thick range, this will work.

Does anyone have an undrilled front bulkhead in the 10.44 to 10.5” diameter range for an aluminum spinner?

The one that came with my TC aluminum spinner was just a wee bit too big for my Warnke prop and Saber crush plate. Total thickness is exactly 4.5”.

Cubes is looking in to his stash of alternates, but I thought I’d ask the community as well. I really don’t want to show up at Oshkosh without a spinner. That would be wrong.

Hi Dick,

Probably a stupid question, but since you mention that it’s too big for the prop AND crush plate, are you mounting the bulkhead in front of the crush plate, or between the prop and plate?

If placed between the prop and crush plate, it would be way too small with no ability to shim.

Also, my crush plate is 7” in diameter (which is the recommendation for higher hp engines now) so it won’t fit in the “dish.”
