NEW STC SA02253AK- 80" PROPS ON O-300s/C-145s

Post by AV8R2 » Mon Aug 29, 2005 18:49

Just received STC SA02253AK for 80" McCauley 1A170/SFC or 1A175/DM metal prop on the Sedan (all) that are running the O-300 or the C-145 Contental engine in the mail today.

The approval covers all models of both engines installed on the 15AC or S15AC Sedan; 8-hole-3/8" bolt prop flange or the 6-hole-1/2" prop bolt.

Will post pricing on new props with STC as soon as I can get the listing. Props will be a direct drop-ship to you so the cost will be minimal. They will be shipped from Wichita, KS.

Call me at (907)688-3715 or email me and I wil return call for more info and orders. Props are in stock at last check with McCauley. Wait time should be minimal.

How does the new prop perform?

Any feedback on how the new prop pulls? The extra 4 inches should help a lot. The cub guys swear by the long prop and they are staring at tall trees really close to the windshield a lot. I am about two rock dings away from needing a new prop. Mad George told me I am "at limits".


Does it require 8.50x6 tires?

We do not have any direct feedback on the 80" props yet. I do have one gentleman that called and said that the performance is really great. Whatever that means.

It must have been good because someone stole the prop off his Sedan when it was parked.

Another fellow called and said that they had tried the 80" prop on a Sedan to see if the plane would perform better because they were operating out of a fairly short grass field with a fence to clear at the end.

He said that there was a great deal of difference in that the plane was airborne a lot sooner than with the shorter prop. This installation was not approved but they were just trying it to see if there would be any improvement.

I also discovered an error in the original TC Data Sheet and the FAA has since reissued the STC. The problem was in the listing for prop diameters in relation to hub model. Both props are and the STC now reads:

"Installation of McCauley 1A175/SFC or 1A175/DM 80" diameter maximum, 73" minimum diameter, fixed pitch propeller.

Propeller pitch: 42" maximum, 40" minimum

For landplane operations, a minimum tire size of 8.50 X 6.00 must be used. "

PRICES AS OF 9-15-05:

1A175/SFC 40" or 42" (6 ea. 1/2" bolts) $3200.00; includes STC and AFM

1A175/DM 8040 (8 bolt hub) $3,375,00; includes STC and AFM

1A175/DM 8042 (8 bolt hub) $3650.00; includes STC and AFM

If your plane does not have the STC or an already approved installation for the 8.50 X 6.00 tires I will include STC SA1114NW to install the Cleveland double puck brakes that is approved for 8.50 X 6.00 tires for the Sedan at no additional cost to you.

Any other questions call me at (907)688-3715 or email me direct: burl@alaska.com

PS, Now working on a separate STC for the Franklin engines. Different engine, different STC.
