Default Anti splat prop wrench

I have a new never used anti splat ultimate prop wrench for sale. Ultimately I can’t use it because it will not fit behind my spinner backplate. I had to make a custom wrench with an angle. $60 includes shipping CONUS. PM or email. Thanks

I don't need the wrench, but am curious about what you did differently so the wrench won't fit?

Hi Bob,
Send me an email to electrogunner@gmail.com and I can send you a pic of the wrench. The wrench is straight and it's thicker than a standard wrench. That is why I can't use it. My buddy has the MT 3 blade on his with the SP cowl and he has alot more room then mine. Mine was a challenge to safety too.

The anti-splatt prop wrench works fine on a Whirlwind as long as you bolt the prop on before installing the backplate (split model). If you have a single piece backplate, then youíll obviously have to install it first. In that case, you may need some sort of Ďmodifiedí torque wrench - I havenít done one of these. The single piece spinner backplate/bulkhead would be easier to install with the prop not installed, but the prop install on the engine would be a little more difficult requiring a different wrench.

Yes I have a one pc backplate that requires install ahead of the prop. Which makes it a bit of a challenge. But doable with some modifed tools.
