I have an aluminum spinner with bulkheads off my Pitts and a new carbon 2 piece nose bowl. The nose bowl needs finish work but even as it sits its 3 pounds lighter than the fiberglass one I have (available too). Im going with the Wolf cowl.

$120 shipped for the spinner and $325 shipped for the nose bowl.

I snagged the wolf cowl on Barnstormers. Did you end up making the intake for me? If so I need to advertise it too!

Haha nope. Was waiting on a definite confirmation. Although one of those inlets would look Sierra Hotel on a wolf cowl, instead of picking up your intake from the baffling.......

Justin,

What diameter is the spinner? Bulkheads for metal prop?
Thanks
Mark

Thx Justin,

I'm looking for a 12" for a wood. The nose bowl is tempting.

I used the 12" BN-3 Spinner from Spruce. It fits the "flat" area on the MC-3A nosebowl (from Spruce)better than the 10 1/2" BN-2. I fit it to a wood prop at first but switched to a metal. You can see the difference here. Both props are 74x56 Sensenich. Same hub thickness.

Sorry for the thread creep.

It had a BN3 on it, that's what I was thinking yours was. Yes the Vans will work and have been thinking on it. Already having the backing plate I'll probably just order a "dome"BN3.

Justin, I had forgotten about this spinner. If Anvil doesn't take it let me know as it is looking like my beautiful yellow spinner that was mounted on an Ivo ground adjustable won't make the switch to a metal Sensenich.
