    Looking for 8 bolt propeller hub rated for 200 to 275 hp

    Building a replica 1918 Fokker D VII and need a hub so that the redrive can get the right propeller shaft and I can make a propeller. Any leads would be helpful if you know any.

    Thanks

    AN-5017 should have the table of dimensions for a #20 up to a #60 spline.

    Have you talked to Valley Engineering?

    http://www.culverprops.com/index.php

    They make PSRU's and would probably either sell you a hub or put you in the right direction.

    They're very Mom-And-Pop, and so you'll be talking directly to either Alaina (who makes props and answers the phone), who will put her dad or grandfather on the phone to give you the skinny. A whole bunch of us in the WWI replica/representational aircraft community have gone to them, and I can personally vouch for their ability to speak "do-hicky" and quality of work.
    The opinions and statements of this poster are largely based on facts and portray a possible version of the actual events.

    Thanks Dart, I do remember talking with them earl in my process. They deal with max 110 hp and VW engines and big twins, not my 200 hp Ford full sized Fokker weighing 2000 lbs loaded. I will talk with them again but not holding my hopes up. Good idea though.
