Prop always stops at the same place

on one of the ´79/80 two Archer II's I fly I notice that the prop nearly always stops at the same location (exactly from top to bottom) when the engine is switched off. I wonder because this does only occour on the one, but not on the other. The engine is quite ok, as I can say, but today the engine didn't start first, and then at the fourth attempt it started for about 10 seconds and went off again. It was very cold today, but I don't think it had actually much to do with that. I'm now letting the mechanics look over it. I anyway wonder if there could be something wrong with the engine because of the prop. It actually occurs not everytime, but in at least 90% of all cases.

Thanks in advance!
