1. If a special administrator is appointed pending determination of a contest of a will instituted before it is admitted to probate, or pending an appeal from an order appointing, suspending or removing an executor or administrator, the special administrator has the same powers, duties and obligations as an executor or administrator, and the letters of administration issued to the special administrator must recite that the special administrator is appointed with those powers.
2. If a special administrator has been appointed, and thereafter a proceeding to contest a will before it is admitted to probate has been instituted, the court shall enter an order granting to the special administrator the additional powers, duties and obligations of an executor or administrator and requiring such additional bond as the court deems proper. The order is not appealable.
