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.

What Type of Spinner?

I was wondering what type of spinner most people used on an Acrosport II, with an O-360. I was wanting to get a BN-3 spinner from Aircraft Spruce, but thenI read the article that Neil wrote in the Acrosport newsletters on fitting a spinner, and apparently, I won't be able to use a 12" diameter spinner if I have the little hump for starter clearance, which I do. My airplane already has a nice paintjob, and I have a Prestolite starter, so getting rid of the hump isn't an option that I'd like to explore. I also found the BN-2 spinner, but the quick and dirty paper mockup that I made of it, seemed a little small. I do want a polished spinner, so fiberglass is out too. So...what spinneris the majority of the Acrosport II's out there running?
