Of course, you can always use a protractor if you want and not use the pitch cylinder.

Our hub vendor has a 3-4 month lead time, so Sensenich geared up production of revision "D1" replacements in-house, with deliveries planned to begin in early September.

While revision "E" and later hub covers will fit on older hubs, the blade pitch pins won't line up, so you have to use a protractor for setting blade angles.

We can supply revision "F" hub covers upon customer request, but note that these will not be available until later in the Fall after delivery of all current orders for revision "D1" covers.
Sensenich plans to begin in-house production of revision "F" hubs in the mid to late 4th quarter of 2018.

Wow!! I am ecstatically excited to hear that the "F" hub will be offered. Since I have no cracks now, I am good with waiting for an "F" hub. This is the best news of the day. Your logic does make sense in offering the D1 hub, and many will opt for it in order to retain the pitch cylinder functionality. I am glad to hear that you are offering us a choice. Thanks..................Tom

Could you come back to us in future, when the F hub covers become available?
Will do.
"D1" covers will start shipping early September.
"F" covers hopefully will start shipping in November or early December.

If customers want to switch their hub cover order over to revision "F":
-let us know ASAP so we can update the order in our system
-shipment won't be till later this Fall (as above)
-you will have to use a protractor to set blade angles (since the hubs subject to the service bulletin have a non-compatible pitch system).
