    Yes, after adding pitch to the 3 blades you must file down the outside diameter of the trailing edge so that it fits properly without rubbing.

    2mm will result in it being tight clearance...

    well jerry i removed the wear ring put the prop in the ring then pressed both in together, then turned it by hand till it shaved off what it did'nt need, it was very tight at first' i just sprayed plenty of lube round it so it could scrape away at it, ill test tomorrow
