Prop Overhaul

Prop Overhaul

I own a 1956 C172.  I have a McCauley 1C172-MDM7653  s/n 62815 installed.  Being a fixed pitch prop, does it have to be overhauled at any particular number of hours?  I was reading through my log books tonight and that question popped into my head.

Re: Prop Overhaul

The answer is No.  But, preventive maintenance does require you ensure it is operating within its performance range and is safe for continued airworthiness.  If it has 2000 hours on it,  I would have a prop shop check it over..

Re: Prop Overhaul

Mine has 600 hours on it, the overhaul was done in 1979.

Re: Prop Overhaul

Should be OK.  I would just make sure the prop has a good corrosion preventive layer and if the overall condition is suitable to your IA, (at annual), then all should be fine.
