Pitts S1-T with a fixed Pitch Prop?

I just got a slightly damaged (groundloop)Pitts S1-T. It is experimental. Part of the damage was a very light prop strike on the MT 3 blade prop. I was wondering of anyone has removed the gov. and constant speed prop and installed a fixed pitch prop? I have a new 76x 62 sensenich - just wondering how aft it gets the CG.

I plan to replace it with a Whirwind as soon as I have the cash. I'd just like to be able to excercise it some.

Also- Anyone with a spare left hand landing gear wishing to sell it please let me know. Otherwise the engine mount is going to Steve Wolf for the RV type rod gear mod.
