Default Remove/Install Propellor Lug

I had occasion to remove one of the propellor lugs so I could drill & tap a hole in the case for the electronic ignition.

Since a picture is worth 1000 words, here are three -- first one shows the removal stackup, the nekkid hole, and the last is the installation stackup.

Cheaper than buying the actual lycoming tool, which I believe is made of an alloy of unobtainium with a .002" coating of unaffordium.

Default Tool

Did you know that you can rent tools from Lycoming?
