Using a different prop

3 posts in this topic

I have an old Chrysler 45 HP with a 16 ft blue fin aluminum boat. Total weight with me and gear about 1100 lb. My prop is 40 years old and is pretty worn. There is a prop on hsolist I can get for cheap and was curious what I will see as a difference if I switch to this prop. I currently have 10 3/8 x 11 1/2 prop. The one on hsolist is 10 1/2 x 12 prop. Will boat rev higher or lower. Hole shot be faster or slower and will top speed be greater or less. They are pretty similar in size so I cant imagine it will be a major difference. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Boat will rev lower, holeshot will be slower and top end will be greater.

Regardless, the size is about the same. I don't think you're going to see a huge difference in performance with the other prop.

Thank you for the reply. This is a really old setup and there is an orginal prop on hsolist I am hoping to obtain for around 30 dollars.

    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.

    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
    • should trigger a check engine light....
    • OK, just from what I am reading and never having been to mechanic school.... Is it possible that when the car comes to a stop that the transmission doesn't, for reasons unknown, downshift to first but stays in a higher gear?  Then when starting out after a few seconds it does downshift to first with a jolt?  Being in too high a gear would account for the slow acceleration and the downshift would be the jolt.  Staying in too high a gear would make a shudder maybe. It did in my old stick shifts .
    • Do you know the name of the guy, CigarGuy?  I'm guessing the answer is "Yes", but I've had a couple of beers.

    • You did not identify the model of your Garmin  sorta important when wiring. If your Garmin is a Striker, than the other two wires brown and blue are not used. Also note the date on the install instructions. The ones dated before March 2016 did not include the wiring information.   This site might have some answer. http://www.gpscity.com/questions?qid=56118
