Default OS 110 driveshaft slop


I have a brand new OS 110, and I ran the break in, and have about 10 flights on it now running rich according to the manual. The other day, I was putting another prop on, and I got it all tightened down, and everything is all good, and Inotice that ifI grab the tips of the prop, I can feel slack ifI do a push pull motion, but its probably less than 1/64", butI'm just concerned.I ran the proper break in, but maybe did I have a out of balance prop or prop hole not centered properly and is screwing up the bearings? It was probably less than 1/64" slop, and the engine runs smooth with no more than normal vibration, soI'm just making sure Idon't have a problem.

A small amount of fore-and-aft play is normal.
