ELA1 SDMP- minimum inspection programme

I own and fly an ELA1 aircraft (private not commercial or training) with a self declared minimum inspection programme. The McCauley fixed pitch prop is coming up to its 6 year overhaul back stop but it has only operated for 350 hrs (TBO 2000hrs) There is no leading edge damage or corrosion.

Does anyone have any knowledge of the acceptability of changing the Minimum Inspection programme to remove the 6 year calendar back stop ie operating the propeller on condition but retaining the the 2000 hour TBO. ?

I understand Sensenich fix pitch props operate with a 2000 hrs TBO but have no calendar back stop.

Right about the Sensenich. 2000 hours to match the Lycoming. Believe you can make your mind up about SDMP, but when you get to annual, your engineer can disagree and amend when he does the review. Sorry should have said he/she......
