70x40 prop

Would a 70x40 narrow blade be too much for a 350 direct drive?

Maybe, maybe no.

Not all 350DD push the same. That being said, I ran a 72x40 LXL on a 350DD and it was the right wood prop (if there is such a thing).

My boat is a 11'6" gellio fiber glass hull. Now I've been told that I should have a holley 600 4 barrel carb on it. When I first got it, it spun 2900rpm. Now i spin 2550 to 2600. I'm not to machanically aklined. I dont know if it is carb. related or timing. I've been reading posts on here about timing, carb. size, and prop size, has a lot to do with rmp. but I havent changed anything since I bought it but add a trim tab. I would like to spin 2900 to 3000 but I dont have a lot of money to dish out to do it. Any ideas would be nice. Thanks Billy
