there is not an adapter. you have a couple options though, you can have your prop hub drilled,or the spilned shaft cut off and the regular pattern hub welded on your crank.

Maybe someone will chime in with Bruce's number...he does great machine work! He made an adapter for a oddball Franklin helicopter engine for me and did a great job. It might help if you add your location in the profile settings.

Without having the crank cut the only adapter you can run is the factory aircraft style splined hub. It can be machined down and drilled to the 6 bolt pattern but you will have to have a 3 inch hole bored through your prop hub.
