Well, I thought things were going too smoothly. Two days ago I received the anxiously awaited prop spacer and when fitting to the prop flange, it would not allow all the bolts to thread easily into the flange. A few of the bolts treaded easily through the spacer into the flange. The next bolt started to bind after a few turns were made. The bolts and spacer were removed and the flange was gaged. Sure enough, there was a spot where the flange was bent 15 thousandths. Not knowing wether or not the crank shaft was bent or possibly cracked, I had no choice but to have it checked. Since the C90 engine has 1400 hours, I decided to have a major overhaul done. So, I’m guessing at least a 2 or three month delay in finishing my CH750. There is still plenty to do and all should be finished by the time the engine returns. Hopefully June will be the “magic month” !
