Prop Orientation

Post by huzilulu »

Does it matter how a propeller is oriented when installed? I.E. with #1 cylinder at TDC, should the #1 prop blade be installed in the vertical, horizontal, or somewhere in between? I’m just wondering if there’s a “best practice” or recommended procedure out there.

The orientation of the propeller does not matter when mounting it to the engine, especially with the three blade. What is more important is that the propeller is well balanced.
