Sounds like you did a good job. Dont mess with success! After you fly for a while at various flight conditions if you want to change it you always can, say at the next CI.

Default About the white Delrin pitch cylinder

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

This may be obvious, but it wasn't to me and I did not see it in print anywhere: if you do decide, as I did, to use the suggested replacement hub (D-1?) and do not replace the white Delrin cylinder (which I did not) you have to make sure that the blades are seated as far out as possible when you tighten the new hub. I failed to do so and was surprised when my spinner would no longer fit. It acted as if the blades had become fatter, which led to me wondering if they were being pulled in further and presenting a wider part of the prop to the spinner.

I contacted Sensenich and quickly received an answer: I could put the cylinder back in to ensure proper blade positioning, or make sure that the blades are as far out as possible.

I'm putting the cylinder back in. YMMV.
