Early 80's evinrude 40 hp prop

9 posts in this topic

My boat has a 80's evinrude 40 hp that needs a new prop thanks to the rocks in Wisconsin last summer. It currently has a 13x10 prop and I for the life of me can't find one on the internet.......suggestions? Oh yeah, my boat does has a trim and tilt with a foot switch....if that helps

Picks, get in touch with Soderblooms.

They are the prop masters. They'll be able to hook you up for a good price, or even fix the dinged up one for a real nice price.

I checked their HSOforum but didn't have any luck. I think I will just have to call them. I wouldn't mind picking up some speed. Even with just me in the boat, it never breaks 23 mph, of course I do have a couple of 31 series batteries up front for the trolling motor and a 9.9 hanging off the back....and a driver that weighs a little under (yes I said under) an eighth of a ton.....

I will give Jay a call next week....probably send my old prop in for a back up and get a new one as well....

My kindergarten son is ITCHING to get in the boat and go fishing. I am hoping to get it ready on Saturday so maybe we can go sunday

I'm assuming it's through hub.. ( I say that because they did make commercial engines through 1985 that were pin drive).. and I see where OMC has a 13x11p. Found some aftermarket props that are 10 3/8 x 10p.

how would I know the difference? being Mechanically denied.....

what are the advantage of a 13X11 vs. some of the 10 3/8 x 10 " props? I am assuming bigger is better to a certain extent, I have always thought my boat should be a little faster.........I am not sure but I get 22-23 solo and with one other guy in the boat with me. 21 with 3 guys and stuff. It is a 16 foot crestliner fish hawk tiller....

Okay, it is a 1989 evinrude on a 1989 16' crestliner fishhawk. Is a 13x11 prop ideal for my boat? I have a 24 v trolling motor up front, with 31 series batteries. I have a 9.9 hanging off the back. I weigh just under an eigth of a ton....I have a foot controlled trim and tilt on it....

I don't think I am anywhere close to the 5500 max WOT RPM's from the manufacturer recomendations. Do I need a smaller diamter prop instead of a 13" diameter prop? Do I need more or less pitch?

with just me it goes 23 mph, with me and my friend along, it gets 23 mph, with 3 guys in it, it drops to 21 mph.....is that as good as I am gonna get?

Yes Jay, I will still call you on monday if I can, and I will mention all of this to you at that time too. Anyone else care to help?

Tom, I'd love to be able to give you prop advice. However, I'm lacking brain power when it comes to proper prop sizing. You're on the right track calling Jay. They'll set ya straight!!!

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
