I am about to get a new spinner but need to know the diameter of the bushings
on the crank flange. Anybody know what the diameter is? I have been looking
for a spinner which has a larger diameter than the BN-1 I am using. Thanks,

The C-125, C-145 and O-300A and B use the same spinner. It uses 8ea. 3/8"
prop bolts in an SAE No.3 flange. The OD of the bushings is about 17/32",
which is the size of the holes in the back plate. Having said that, why
don't you get the right spinner, which will be pre-drilled and will align
perfectly. Univair has them, their old part number was UA-5609, which
may have been changed, it's the same spinner as a C-170B. I think Steve
Wilson bought one recently and it was around $300. I found Univair's site
(www.univair.com) They list a Swift spinner, S -1b, for $451.33 ask about
the C-170 spinner also. -- Jim
NO SPINNER ON ORIGINAL
Subject: Re: Spinner
I AM NEEDING A NEW POLISHED SPINNER.
The one Mark Holiday and Charlie Hoover adapted for a GC-1A with a McCauley
is a Stits BN-1 (I think) You had to cut that one out yourself. The GC-1A'
s originally had no spinner, they were all Aeromatic or Beech-Roby props.

I am trying to find a spinner. I have a c-125 on my Swift. I have been
told that a Cessna 170 will fit it, but it seems that the Cessna 170,
172 series had a lot of different spinners. Do you know the model number
that fits on a swift. I have the Sensenitch prop on it. Thanks, Paul Smith
BTW progress continues, I have the paint completely stripped. The gear
cycles fine, I have the engine cowled. Next step is to spray the wings
(inside) with corrosionX and put them back on the plane.
The correct spinner can be obtained from Univair. Their p/n is S-1b. The
Cessna p/n is AK7053-3. The Univair price is high enough, you don't even
wanna know the Cessna price! If you can find a used one, it is the same
as a C-170B or early 172 with the 8 bolt crankshaft. -- Jim
125HP SWIFT SPINNER...(060102)
Subj: Spinner for 125 HP Swift

I have a used spinner and back plate for a Cont. 125-2, eight bolt crank
but I had a McCauley prop on N78071 b/4 installing a O-300-D. I don't
know if the cut out for the prop is the same as a Sensenich. At any rate
it is for sale but I don't have any idea what a fair price would be. If
you are interested, my name is Bob Snider and my phone number is 205-979-9503.

The shape of the cutout is smaller for the Sensenich - but that's OK,
it still works fine. Monty
