I am installing an Aeromatic propeller on my daughters Franklin powered Cadet.  Looking for suggestions as to spinner and installation.   Tim

I had a Franklin powered Cadet with an aeromatic prop back in the 1960's.  (N41710)  It had a Hampton spinner.  The spinner had a bullet shaped profile to accommodate the counterweights.

I may have some photos.  I'll look when I return to their location.  That will be around December 3rd.

Here's a photo of N41710 taken at an airshow at Bowman Field in 1967.  This is my Franklin powered Cadet with an Aeromatic prop and a Hampton spinner.
