The Engine it's self did not cause the problems. I twas the vibration thar caused small cracks to develope into large ones and the outer sheet of the commposit metal prop slid off, sometimes into the AC. It mostly started at the de-iceing boot. IL worked on the KC-97G at Hunter AFB Ga. from 1956 to 1960. PS I also worked on the C119C in the Air Reserve as an ART flight engineer at ndrews AFB. jbfire3 The Engine it's self did not cause the problems.
