Is this correct spacer?

Can someone confirm this is the correct spacer for a Sensenich 70CM6S prop?. It seems it should have lugs for each bolt rather than 2 alignment pins?

Thanks!

I was reluctant to do much leaning down low because of the already high temps and I really don't want to start melting metal. Next time we have a decent day up here in PNW, I will give it a try.
