Default Nose cone backplate fitting?

I have a Dave Brown nose cone and the backplate hole is larger by a couple mm than the prop drive it sits on. Does anyone have a good technique for centering the backplate so it fits snug and is balanced? Or is there another part I need to procure?


Thanks,


Burt Reynolds

Burt, I have done the quick and dirty and simply put some heat shrink tube on the shaft. That being said, the spinner should have come with 4 different size sleeves. You can contact DB to get them or you can find an electric pilot that will have some sitting around that came with his APC E prop.

Thank you for mentioning the sleeve. I bought it a year ago and misplaced the sleeve but have found it. Thank you!
