Suzuki may i ask where you bought this prop from ? 17 inch pitch on a 70 seems fairly small considering i'm running a 19 on my 50
am i over pitched ? all thoughts say not and i've even been told by Steel Devs that i could go up to a 21....thats if they could source one for me cheaper than a new engine, seems my size 11-1/2x19 is an odd size, they can get them in both stainless and ali but the stainless was £311+VAT
and the ali was approx half that price
Suppose its just this engine having yet another laugh at me again !!
I did though speak to Highway Marine at Sandwiche 2 days ago and they say they can get me a 11-1/4x19 ali for £103+VAT
but i'd have to go in and pay for it before they ordered it in...... from all my research i've not been able to sourse one and steel devs would have to bring it in from Belgium for me, so why do Highway believe they can get one ? might go in tomorrow and buy/order it just to see if they can actually get one in !! they are an Evinrude main dealer/service agent so maybe they have the direct contacts ?
One other thing.....how much difference would 1/4 inch less diametre make to performance ?
