Re: Clocking the prop
Thanks Dave Richardson and especially David Gall for the information
provided. I should have looked before talking as we've covered most
everythnig already in previous discussions.
Having said that, it appears there are two reasons to clock a prop.
(1) smoothness and (2) performance. I'm interested in both. So given
what we've read where is the best place to set a two blade prop on
an 0200 to get both? I do not had prop.

David's image at the time was to envision a yardstick being heldat the
center point and aligned vertically and moving your hand side toside
horizontally. You will get the stick to start oscillating. Ifinstead
of holding the yardstick vertically, you hold it horizontally andmove
your hand horizontally, you get no such oscillation.(more
