I recently replaced a seal in my McCauley 3-blade prop, on a 2009 Cessna T182T. Prop shop charged $1,890. Does that sound right?

That $1,890 does not include the charge for my shop to pull the prop, truck to the prop shop, pick up the repaired prop, and reinstall.

Prop had 514 hrs. No other issues w/ the prop since new.

Aviation Consumer published an article in 2008, which was updated in 2019, that makes reference to a "clean and seal" repair in the $700 to $900 range. Don't know if that's a 2008 or 2019 number.

Thoughts? Thanks!

I recall a recent 3 blade reseal was about 1500. Did they need to fix or replace anything as this would be extra.

Sounds reasonable, I think I paid a similar amount for prop reseal, they inspected for any problems while apart, dressed the prop (file the leading edge to remove nicks) and painted the prop blades.
