    Default Volvo Penta Propeller / Lower Unit

    I have a 290 drive. After doing some engine work, I need to do some prop testing.

    Anybody have any thoughts on propellers that are working well for you?
    I have heard Solas makes some 3 & 4 blade for this application, but I would like to test them first. Any ideas on getting my hands on some loaners for testing?

    Also, I have heard, read and seen a few pictures of the mysterious Volvo E-drive. It looks to be a Speedmaster like unit, but hard to find and get parts for. Anyone have any knowledge of this unit?
