Recently I converted my Constant speed Pitts S1S to fixed pitch and selling the prop and governor.

Prop - MTV-2-B-C

Governor - MT P-440-17

I also have the oil line that goes from the rear governor pad to front of the engine case.

The governor is in great condition and has around 100hours on it.

I had the prop pulled apart for overhaul by East Coast Propellers in Sydney and found out that it had the old lag screws so according to the AD the blades are not able to be overhauled. The hub is in like new condition and you can re-use the old blades which are fine except for the AD non-complience. Alternatively you can buy new blades from MT and have it overhauled and have a cheap 0 time MT propeller.

Open to offers. There are heaps of pictures of the Pitts with the MT on my website... flyingantonline.com

Regards,

That's the one. Do you know the aircraft? It's a very nice machine which I cant claim any credit for.

It's a great plane. I remember when he finished it and
brought it to the first contest. It is arguably the best S1 out
there. I just listed mine for sale on Barnstormers. Almost the same
except plans built wings. I love my MT. I'm surprised you went with
a fixed pitch.

Hi, i'm building a Steen Skybolt, the first one in Argentina, the engine is a Lycoming IO 360 and i'm looking for a prop variable pitch for this engine. Your prop can be used in my engine? The price?. I'm a pilot in Aerolineas Argentinas and we are flying to Sydney four times a week.
Kind regards
Gustavo
