Hi Paul,

I'm confused...does your C85 have a separate prop hub that fits on a tapered crankshaft? Or is it all one-piece (in which case I'm sure it's not cad-plated, but willing to be corrected!)

Paul,
Try calling Deltair for advice (023 9225 5255). I would have thought a metal coating/treatment like this would need to be approved by the OEM or engine manufacturer?

Hi Tony,

Thanks I may do that. I know that Aircraft Specialties Services in the US offer the facility, but was hoping that there would be a similar company here?

I have had 14k worth of extremely bad experience, as have others i speak to, with the UK company mentioned above - BEWARE!
