Wanted- 0550101-3 “skull” spinner

Postby N1313D » Sun Jan 15, 2023 4:23 pm

Looking for a more original spinner for my 1951 170A. I am also interested in other original items for the 1951.
Not interested in hip and slick modifications. The more original the better.

When I replaced my bullet spinner with a skull cap spinner about 4 years ago, I used Aero Fabricators 6" spinner, p/n 1-808-000 with bracket p/n 1-807-999, both available from Wag-Aero as a kit (both spinner and bracket) p/n 1-808-100. Current price is about $72. I'm happy with it.

Where is it located now?

Thanks, I checked with Wag-Aero and their spinner is not a pma part.
According to Tyler (PO), the guy he gave his spinner to would be willing to sell it back if he could only remember his name.

Interesting. Their web site says it’s a pma part. https://www.wagaero.com/skull-cap-large ... pma-d.html

Why do you think you need a “PMA” part? Finish polishing it, inspect it for quality-control, …making it into an “owner produced part”. :wink:

If your bullet is in good shape, I’d be interested in it. I’m in Greensboro.

Probably what we’ll end up doing. Will check my dimensions when the prop comes back from overhaul. One blade was 52°, the other 53° interesting thrusting vibration that cause. Not sure I want to know how that happens but using a loaner prop now and the vibration is gone.
