  • Tadpole, just spoke with Tim (IA) who is also running the STC for the 220 Franklin on his -3 with the Hartzel, but he has obtained via 337 approval to run a 82" C 201 due to not support on the C21 & thinks you could certainly do that with the C22 as well as it was the McCauley that superceded the C21. What is trashed on your C21? I have a bent one of those as well but all but the blades appears OK

  • Thats to bad, you definetly don't want to go with the obsolete C21, My mechanic A/P,IA is also running a 220 on his -3 & is using the Hartzel. Will check with him on if the C22 can be used I sure don't see why not as it was the direct replacement for the C21. Will get back to you with what I find out.
