Warp Drive Style Hub on C85 Tapered Shaft?

Post by Dunratih » Thu Mar 21, 2019 11:55 am

Hello everyone,

I have a C-85 engine on my airboat and am replacing the propeller with a three blade variable pitch composite prop. I've already ordered the prop and am very excited about it. The company I've ordered the prop from is going to put 3 inch holes in the hub so it will fit over the tapered crankshaft. It hasn't arrived yet but I'm wondering if there is something else to be done to make the new hub fit.

I'm not expert so any advice is welcomed.

Thanks!

Erik
