15 horse Evinrude 2st

5 posts in this topic

Can someone tell me what is the correct size prop for this motor?

I have a '96 Evinrude 15 horse with electric start. Currently the prop on there reads 9.5-12.5

Thanks for any advice.

What you have there is a 9 1/2 diameter, 12 1/2 pitch.

Does it run fine like that? Thats the biggest prop made to fit that engine.

I've got a 9 1/4 dia. 8 pitch on my 15 johnny for the 14 ft duck boat if that helps you out.

It all depends on whether or not you are able to achieve max rpms at WOT with out over-reving.

More speed is what I'm looking to achieve. It seems to run well at wot with that prop but speed is an issue but I think thats all Im gonna get out of that motor. Now if there was a simple way to determine how many rpm's I'm pushing at wot...

I think I'll just have to live with it as is. Thanks for the info Bruce!

The only way is with an inductive tach that reads off one of the plug wires.

My 1988 15HP evenrude stock prop is a 9.5 X 10

If ya know anyome with a dwell meter I think you can check RPMs with it,unless the newer motors are different than my 88, I also spose dwell meters are outdated now.

    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed.
