Default Evolution .46 NT question-dropping the flywheel



Hi,


I have advanced to my fouth plane a Cessna Cmpro 182 50. I want to reuse my original Evolution trainer .46 that I have on the Alpha I learned to fly with.
Can you just take the flywheel off or do you need to get some replacement spacer/washer thingy?
Of couse I'll be using a 12/6 two blade Western Air Screw prop.

Thanks,

John

The flywheel can simply be pressed off of the hub.

Perhaps you mean a Master Air Screw MAS prop? 12/6 is a lot of prop for that engine. 11/6 would be better suited to the engine or maybe a 12/4.

You're right it's a Master Airscrew GF 3 series 12/6 same size as my Beaver with a Magnum .46 engine. Flies fine.

JUST SUPPORT THE FLYWHEEL IN A VICE AND KNOCK THE CENTER OUT

An alternative to knocking out the flywheel, is to merely purchase another prop hub from Horizon.

This permits you to put the flywheel back on if you ever need to.

I have an Evolution Trainer Power System. It is a nice .46 engine. I talked with customer service at Horizon, he recommended I use the prop driver for the Evolution 46NT. My problem was when mounting a 2 blade prop the plastic spinner backing buckled. I solved this by adding a small washer between the current prop driver and the plastic spinner back. I did not see any difference in rpm's after this fix. I like the engine, I put it on a new Sig 4*40 I will maiden this spring if it ever gets to the Chicago western suburbs.
Here is the part number to help you find it on Horizon's website.
