Update on the situation.
I'm where I need to be for haulout.
Ran here over the last week or so.
A nice relaxing pace of 8knts @800 RPM.
Yes I would too but there's no Time.
I have to be in another part of the world on the 20th, There's no way for me to stop somewhere and get this...

What's the odds of both engines having dirty filters and then both engines turning the exact FL wot?
Really Ralph ?
You got to kidding.
Okay guys. Everything is good.
Let's resume our regularly scheduled programming.
Just again for clarification sake.
I buggered the Port prop on a rock. The prop is DOA period,end of story, not repairable. The yard and prop...

ACME took an inch off the pitch when they spec'd...
Haven't checked this in a couple of years.
The invoice says this....
24x25x2 ACME 4 blade Nibral .045 cup.
I'm pretty sure they're 2450 FL with....
I typically run about 1900-1950.
That's the 80% sweet spot based on my spec'd 2450. The engines are 6-71 TIs.
I'm afraid running at 80% of 2250...
