Eprop on Bailey v5 (Parajet Zenith)

Recommended Posts

I ordered a eprop for my Zenith with Bailey v5 but it does not fit. The studs and bolt is too short, the eprop has a thicker base, maybe 0.5 to 1cm thicker than the standard parajet 130cm prop.

Anyone else here using a eprop on a bailey v5, did it fit, or did you fit longer studs and bolt?

They said I can return the prop and they will send one with the correct base, but I'm in NZ so it will take weeks before I can get a new one.

Have you done this before? How did you get the studs out? they are smooth.It also look like the thread is bigger than the usual M5 thread.

you need tool that can grip the stud.mole grips might do it,but prob mark the shaft,a bit of heat will help.put some cloth over stud before you try with grips,looks m8 or m10 thread,looks like quick relase hub

I made some new studs for mine and got a longer bolt. The old studs came out easy enough- a bit of emery cloth on wrapped round them and pliers did it. 

Now it will fit any thicker prop. (Which are Norma cheaper.
