The no. 1 engine low oil pressure warning light came on while climbing through 7000 feet. When the engine was stopped, a fuse blew and only the right side instruments lights functioned. The crew returned to the airport and preformed an ILS approach. The prop hadn't feathered so rudder and elevator were fully deflected. The aircraft touched down 30 m left of the runway. The reason the prop couldn't be feathered because the no. 1 prop feathering handle was misrigged.
