Actually, the second time I replaced it was preventive, not necessary. I am surprised Bernd needs to replace it again. Replacement depends greatly on alignment and whether your prop is balanced(that is, did not hit anything). I was working on well over 1000 hours before the second replacement. I would guess that keeping it wet, without a seasonal dry storage, is good for its longevity.
