On Kristy, the new MaxProp fit almost perfectly on the old shaft used for the AutoProp, There was less than a mil in a couple of spots that were trimmed on the MaxProp by a prop shop to make a perfect fit.

Bill R: Do you know what modification was made to the C-drive to accommodate the Autoprop? I am guessing the output shaft was lengthened...
Yes, I know...the C Drive case was modified to allow for a AutoProp blade to pass by the C Drive when the blade is at 90 degrees (feathered).
If you place an AutoProp on an older model Amel SM, and start the engine, chances are you will destroy the AutoProp and the C Drive.
Is that a good enough explanation?😀
