    Spruce E = 1.3
    Aluminum E= 10

    The Avid is 2.5" x.065", I think.
    Depending on your design, then another sleeve doubler at strut might work. Say 3 feet long slitted to clamp tight and rivet.

    If the comment "gasoline resin" is actually sloshing compound then you may have a serious problem.
    Over time the sloshing compound can turn to goo.

    A homebuilder can overhaul a used but repairable aircraft engine for perhaps $5000.
    The aircraft engine is engineered for the stress of turning a prop, and at an efficient diameter and rpm.

    The danger zone is probably the less than 100 hours in type. That's why insurance companies want 100 hours in type.
