Is there a Props for Dummies book anywhere? I need to figure our what prop to run now that I think I have the rest of the mechanic stuff running smooth. Reading some of the other threads on here I am guessing that I need to go down to at least a 23? Also I am wondering what may work better, a 3 or 4 blade?
My issue. Old motor kept coming apart and had a supercharger on it. Was a 502. New motor is carbureted 454 30 over no super charger. Bravo 1 outdrive. Yesterday I could only get it to top out a 3-3,400 rpm, slow to get on plane. I had my 4 blade 26 pitch prop. I am wonder with the technically smaller motor is that too much prop?
I have a 23 pitch, 3 blade I am going to try but looking for general prop info before I start tinkering too much or buying props that won't fix the problem.
Is the bigger number for the pitch mean that it is more of an angle and therefore pushing more water?
Thanks for any info
