The front of my cowling, right behind the prop, sticks out too far and is rubbing the prop. Has anyone else experienced this and how did you fix it?
It seems as though the cowling pins on front are too narrow and to get the cowling on them you have to "squeeze" the cowling which makes it bow out too much. I've thought of just "wallering" out the holes to enable it to flatten some. Any suggestions?
