I just completed the LSRM-A repairman course and found a Service Bulletin on the Woodcomp Propeller that I did not previously know about.
Apparently, my 2006 Allegro 2000 should have been grounded for a propeller overhaul as of 2012. The Woodcomp Klassic 160 has a 6 year/ 950 hour TBO.
Anyone have a U.S. source for overhaul? Is there an alternate prop that has a better TBO or longer age limit?

I would encourage you to communicate with Doug at Allegro USA.. He would be the one that would know how to respond to this question.

As you know, you're NOT limited to specific age requirements. It can be evaluated on-condition and signed off by you.

I refer you to the Willette letter. As you might know, the FAA legal
department interprets their regulations. This interpretation become
the FAA's official position on a subject unless the FAA is taken to
court and a judge disagrees.

The short of it is that the FAA is always above the manufacturer. The manufacturer can't over-extend their authority. They also can't stop you from using alternative methods acceptable to the administrator, such as on-condition inspection. I've attached the letter.

Doug will also refer you to the same.

You can perform an on-condition inspection on an S-LSA and an E-LSA. This is a practice acceptable to the administrator and is absolutely the norm. I've worked on several Allegros. I don't believe any of them had replaced their prop simply due to the bulletin.
Best regards,
Bradley Pearce
