Mespert,

You're welcome! Glad I could be of help.

You only need the adapter or the spinner - not both. The adapter is much lighter than the spinner, but the spinner is sort of rubbery, so it adds a measure of protection in a nose-over. If I'm dealing with a plane that's already on the edge of being tail-heavy (Champ, F4U), I use the heavier push-on spinner/adapter. Otherwise, I use the lighter push-on adapter.

If you use the adapter, be sure to mount it so the flange is facing forward.

Joel
