I still need a spinner like in post #4 at the link below. Remember this is for a 0-235 not a 0-320 or larger. 10" or 11" dia. by 14" long would be ideal but am getting desperate. There was a place at SnF that was selling used spinners located over by the school building on, I believe, at the south end that had a nice selection but not what I needed, I took a card to contact them later as they thought they had one back home but, typical for me, I lost the card! :eek: Any ideas on who that might have been or where I might find out? The problem I'm having is getting something that looks good to my eye. I don't want the little pointy type like a 172.

I have two beautiful spinners I will post later this week for sale. Both for larger engines, both 12" dia., both bought from posters here, both have the ballistic shape (that I want), not the straight side shape.

Here is a nice spinner, 10 dia. X 14" long. Prop cut outs are 4" from back plate to the front edge. The bolt pattern is 4 and 3/4" (4.75" type 2). The second flange sits 3.5" in front of the back plate. This for the 0-360 I'm told. It is as nice as it looks, I paid $200 for it and will take that plus shipping. Any questions please ask, I got this DHonkomp earlier this year, hoping I could make it work but no joy.

Larry,
I have a really nice Piper Colt spinner for a 0-235.
I'll post pictures later today. 12in, definitely not pointy.

Grimm, thanks but the 12" won't clear the starter bump! Need under 11". That bump has been a pain in my life! :mad:

Starter bump intact or trimmed exposing starter head. Most I see are trimmed.

Here are some pics of the bulk heads for the red spinner. You can see profile and general condition of the spinner in post #3

After spending years looking for a spinner that I like, fit, (10.250" dia and longer than normal) and had a reasonable price I have almost settled on a UHS Spinners out of Canada. Any opinions on their quality? Scott is the gentleman I'm dealing with and seems very nice and accommodating.
