Re: 350 cam choice

I have used, Comp Cams 12236-3 marine xtreme K-kits in the past on my 355's and loved the all out performance. throttle response thru all rpm is really snappy and makes good torque. With proper complimenting heads and pistons, I would say you could easily make 400 hp and 415 tq. Although, I will agr...

Re: propeller tracking

That's alot of tracking differience! The 10 grams is livable, but 3/4" is gonna destroy the bearings, possibly crank of whatever it is attached to and mabey even wipe out the prop all together. Try to afford a good used Whirlwind or Seinsenich. JMHO :scratch:

Re: Torque for crank and prop bolts

Adapter to crank should be 50-60 ft. lbs
Prop bolts should never exceed 35 ft. lbs on a wood prop.
Start with 30 at prop run on trailer a couple minutes re-torque to 35 run and recheck torque agian.
Allways use Never Sieze on hub-crank bolts.
PM me if you need more advise.

Depending on H.P., cam and rigging clearance, a 74-78" paddle prop & 38-48* of pitch ( a 78LR44 is standard for a 2:1 and a 350) so with your ratio and a well built 4.3 that's close to the right prop for you. If you don't have clearance then go to a 72 or 74 48 or 50 pitch. JMO Hope this he...
