Re: [Amel] Autoprop on SM 302
I purchased an anode for the prop to replace the plastic cap.
I found that as the zinc eroded and became loose and finally one of the
areas being held by the mounting screw broke off. The zinc was flopping
around. I went back to the Plastic cap.
I had the same problem with a maxprop.

Subject: [Amel] Autoprop on SM 302
Hi Y'all, I have just had my Autoprop bearings changed after about 2,500
hours and 7 years.I did it as a precaution. When stripped down,the bearings
were in good condition. The prop was returned with a zinc anode at the aft
end, in place of the red plastic piece fitted by Amel. Question: Why do Amel
fit the red plastic piece instead of the zinc anode? Cheers, Ian and Judy,
