4 cyl props

Post by swampinn »

I've got an o-320 and will be in the market for a new prop here shortly just wondering what everyone is running on theirs and what seems to be the favorite

almost done breaking in 200 from jr with the three blade excalibur. have a lot of pitch in it to choke down motor and break in rings. at 2500 wot it goes anywhere and has good snap. gonna change oil and prop pith in a few more hours and set for 2800 on trailer. will tell you what happens. then I will put on 70 q and see how she does.

Wallbanger let us know how the Excalibur runs, I may try some different setups and 3-blades may be one of them

the 70 q is gonna stay on my 4 banger. Excalibur is a great prop and dealing with Patti at whirlwind is awesome but my boat performs on the water and the hill better with the 70 q. 1600 rpm in deep water 2800 wot moves on ground at 1900. Excalibur is going on the 160 to see how it does there. we'll see.
