• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Lycoming conversion to fixed prop

Here is a Question.
I have a O-360 Lycoming which in its earlier life on a Mooney have been running with a Constant Speed Prop. Now I want to convert it to a fixed prop. While I know that that the front end of the hollow crankshaft must be closed with an expanding plug, I am not sure about the plug which sits inside the hollow cavity at the other end. Should this plug be removed ? And how do you remove it ?
