Another thing I learned about running an Indian Mills as a pusher: it helps a lot to use a brass washer as a thrust bearing between the case and prop driver. I noticed that there was more and more endplay, so I eventually found a washer that took up almost all of it, and it seemed to pull better. This is not unique to the IMills, as most plain bearing engines end up with the same problem; has to do with steel prop driver agains an aluminum or potmetal case. Engines with proper (ball) bearings don't need this mod.
