It's a Whirl Wind 151 with the Jihostroj governor that WW has adjusted for them (425 psi). The smaller hub on this prop requires the higher pressure. I put the standard Van's RV-7/9 firewall recess in and it provides plenty of room. Pics of the recess...

Hey guys, making progress...




Paint work is nearly complete but I still have a few weeks to go on my buddy's RV-8 we're painting at the same time. Then it's time to finish up the wiring and plumbing and take it to the airport.

WOW! That thing looks great with the paint on! I am gearing up to shoot mine and this definitely helps to inspire. Congrats.
