Carbon spinner

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi all , I recently bought a carbon spiner fixed by a center m5 bolt and I do not understand why I lost it because the bolt brake flush at the end of the crank. Before I even took the precaution not to tighthen too much since it was in carbon fiber and I even put blue loctite. Anyone has any idea what happend?

Re: Carbon spinner

Sounds like the torque from the prop was stronger than the bolt

Re: Carbon spinner

An unbalanced prop could have caused the engine and spinner to vibrate enough to propagate a fatigue-crack in the spinner's retaining bolt.
