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!!!

    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.

    • I replaced my transducer on my  fl 18 with a proview  last winter very pleased with it. I thought my vexilar was going bad it was not picking up my hook anymore.  Replaced my transducer with a new proview worked great last spring crappie fishing. Replacing the transducer on my fl 12 with a proview this week.
