On the last flight the prop was feathered (the aircraft is a TMG) but then wouldn’t unfeather nor would the engine re-start. The air accumulator had some air pressure in it, and have re-charged it today but have some far been unable to either unfeather the prop or start the engine.

Any thoughts/suggestions much appreciated

    In this type of prop you will not be able to restart until you get the prop out of feather.  The flat blade simply will not allow the engine to spin freely enough to get your RPM needed to start.  (you must have about 100 RPM prop to get spark)  

    Get he prop out of feather first before attempting to start. 

     

    Cheers

    Thanks for that, it does of course raise the question as to how to unfeather the prop on the ground with the engine stopped? Normally in flight it will windmill and this is enough to do the job
