I am waiting for the Sensenich hub and will start a condition inspection tomorrow.

Looking for advice:

Should I remove the shroud? Ia there any advantage for having it? Also

I have not used hardly any fuel with ethanol. Is it worth replacing all o-rings and other items?

I fly at 1000 to 3000 feet. Is 4900 rpm static still a good starting point? And 5200-5300 climb rpm OK?

Thanks much!! Doug Dahl

With regard to O-rings I assume you mean the ones on the intake manifold. Iíve gone through 6 annuals removing the manifolds each time to get to the engine mount bolts. I inspect the O-rings every time and then reinstall them.
