Engine Conversion to Fixed Pitch

Finished converting the engine to use a fixed pitch prop.  Had a "Never Again" experience using some Harbor Freight hex sockets.  The tip of it sheared off instantly when I started to back out the pipe plug that's buried over a foot inside the crankshaft.  Luckily I was able to get the broken tip out of the plug and try again with a Sears Craftsman set of hex sockets that I ran out and bought, which worked like a charm.  I'll never use a cheap tool again on something I care about.
